A Star Is Born

When I was in elementary school, I went through a brief phase when I wanted to be an actress. Well, more specifically, an educated, Ivy League-trained, serious actressOf course, I had no idea if I could actually act, and I soon found out that, of course, I could not. I loved losing myself in books, movies and my favorite TV shows, and I idolized the women I saw on the big screen, but I was painfully shy at that age, so I can't imagine why I thought acting was even an option for me. Oh, to be young again, with a limitless imagination!

Even so, when my husband and I found out that a movie was going to be filming in our neighborhood, we jumped at the opportunity to be extras.

Today is October 21, 2016, which means that it's not only Back to the Future Day, but the film that Chapin and I appeared in, Keeping Up With the Joneses, is finally in theaters! I am so excited to see if we appear onscreen, even if it's only for a second. Look for me in this plaid dress. Poor Chapin is wearing an Oktoberfest costume, complete with lederhosen and little hat.

I'm not sure we will see the movie this weekend, since Chapin has to work, but we will be definitely be seeing it very soon!

Today's dress is a fun Friday dress with one of my favorite designs: polka dots!

The dress is appropriate for today, the day of my "movie debut," since I spotted Mindy wearing it on The Mindy Project, and it's apparently been on some soap operas as well.

Dress: BCBGMaxAzria Red Polka Dot Print Sweater Dress (no longer available)

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Alana Patent Leather Sandals

These Jimmy Choos -- don't worry, I bought them on sale at Saks Off 5th -- are the latest edition to my closet, and I just adore them. They also arrived on a day that was very busy and stressful for me at work, so Chapin opened the box and had them all posed and ready for me to try on by the time I came home. I am so lucky to have a partner in life who not only loves me, but supports my fashion habit. ;)

Have a great weekend!
