Take my picture by the pool,
Cause I'm the next big thing!"

Photo Shoot for Smithe Atlanta Models Agency

Here are some photos from my latest photo shoot for Smithe Atlanta Models Agency. Smithe Atlanta Models Agency is a non-exclusive modeling agency, which allows me to model for projects not affiliated with the agency. Enjoy the pictures!

That wild strand of hair bothers me too. I am wearing a Herve Leger dress (fall 2008 runway collection) and Christian Louboutin shoes (No Prive 120 in Blue Tiger).

Here, I am wearing a more bourgeois outfit - an Express shirt, Rich & Skinny jeans, and Christian Louboutin shoes (Yoyospina 100 in Silver Leopard).

Here, I am wearing a Matthew Williamson for H&M swimsuit, Amrita Singh earrings, and Luella sunglasses.

Yes, I know I am not curvy.

Christian Louboutin scams

As Christian Louboutin shoes increase in popularity and attract the attention of bourgeois women who lust after the fabulous red soles of their favorite female celebrities, international con artists have taken note and set up a proliferation of replica Louboutin online shops.  Be aware of all the websites that are making blatant knockoffs of Louboutins and then claiming either "100% authenticity or your money back" or "top quality replica."  Don't be victimized by these scams, especially when you can get authentic Louboutins at Saks Fifth Avenue or Barneys for less than $270 + tax during the summer and winter sales.

You can buy authentic Louboutins at: (but they are usually sold out within five minutes on Gilt)

eBay sellers of authentic Louboutins:
venee2 (Note: some TPFers reported undisclosed damages in venee2's merchandise.)

If you choose to buy on eBay, definitely get the shoe authenticated at the Purse Forum before bidding because there are a ton of replica items on eBay. Membership on tPF is free of charge.

J. Crew suits

I am a fan of J. Crew's petite pant suits, especially for the ultra-competitive 2L summer job interviews in this recessionist economy. Below, I am wearing a suit from J. Crew's Super 120s line. I get secretly nervous when a skirt rides up my leg during a job interview that does not have a desk safely blocking the view of my bottom half.

It appears that I may have a wedgie.

I am also wearing an Ann Taylor blouse, Luella sunglasses, Kenneth Cole 100 mm high heels, H&M headband, 12 mm baroque freshwater pearls, and carrying a Hello Kitty lunch box.
