If you follow me on instagram @zahra_sandberg, you know that I recently entered an Instagram contest and was chosen to walk in the Anthropologie fashion show held at Woodfield Mall. Even though it may seem like modeling would come naturally to me, seeing as how I take blog pictures constantly, I find modeling extremely difficult and anxiety-inducing. I think you might notice that I am looking down in the picture – I did that the entire time i walked…
I arrived a couple of hours before the show, where I picked up my outfit and went straight to hair and makeup. I got to meet Amna, a makeup artist and Love Zahra fan who works at Asha Salon & Spa in the Streets of Woodfield. She dolled me up and I was ready to go! It was all over in a flash, and before I knew it I had a stack full of clothes to try on for myself. I ended up going home with my newest denim obsession, the Stevie Ankle Distressed Denim and this Faux Fur Stole I modeled in the show. Lastly, these pretty Gilded Stud Earrings are so elegant and somewhat demure but at the same time, the bold green is very much a showstopper.
