Last week was a fun one. If you follow me on social media you may have seen me mention my day trip to London last Thursday, when I was invited to a TV casting for a large shopping channel. How exciting!
The opportunity, should it happen, will be to work on the shopping channel as an interiors expert, showcasing certain brands and products.
But first, there are a few auditions.
This first one was held in London at the Casting Agency offices and simulated the relationship between presenter and expert, and was filmed. Whilst it was very short, I hoped I managed to convey the information about my product in the right way. Everyone was extremely friendly and supportive, and they made me feel very welcome and relaxed. The offices and waiting area were very bright and contemporary (and very quiet!).
Of course, it’s always a dilemma on what to wear to an event like this, particularly when it’s on camera, which is why I was particularly pleased with the dress I chose from Boden. I would never normally go for a colour like this, but the Pepper Red of this Zoe dress has an orange base which I love.
The fit is very flattering and the neckline particularly interesting, giving the whole dress a 60’s vibe. It’s also incredibly comfortable too, which was perfect for this event. There are several other available colours that I’m loving too, so should I get the job, I may have to treat myself – they would look great on TV! Thanks so much to Boden for my casting day outfit.
Of course, afterwards it felt necessary to treat myself whilst waiting for the train. It would have been rude not to, right?
