The Covered Perfectly Photo Shoot Week

Being a model for Covered Perfectly is such an honor for me.

I recently traveled to Los Angeles for the fall photo shoot. I always try to take the minimum amount of basic clothing pieces so that I can mix and match looks without having to take a large bag to have to check and possibly lose.

I spent almost the whole week in L.A. so while I was there I got to meet the beautiful Susan Blakey from the blog Femme d’un Certain Age.

We enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Ca Del Sole in Toluca Lake. 

The photo shoot was on Friday which means I got to have my makeup done by the extremely talented Lex Mejia.

With me below is my sweet friend Pauline Durban who owns Covered Perfectly in the royal blue Boatneck, and Mary Ann Simonetti is in the black and malt Color Block top. Mary Ann was the winner of the contest sponsored by Covered Perfectly. The winner got to spend the day with us at the Covered Perfectly photo shoot, have her makeup professionally done, take home a top of her choice and have a page on the Covered Perfectly website dedicated to her. Isn't that a great contest? I enjoyed meeting Mary Ann so much. I hope we can get together again in the future.

I love being with this hard working group of women. Everyone is so professional and kind. It is a special sisterhood that I feel very honored to be included in.

Here I am wearing the cute Piping design. Kristen, Pauline's assistant is looking at the computer screen, checking out the pictures as Nichole, the photographer is taking them. Pauline is making sure that the top hangs perfectly.

After the busy week of working hard to prepare for and completing the photo shoot, it was time for a day of sight-seeing and rest. Pauline was such a great tour guide and hostess!
