I wanna be on TV | The Fashion Dungjen


It's true, I want to be on TV. But, shoot, who doesn't? Well, I'm about to have my 15 minutes of fame sometime next month. Neat, right?

This coming Sunday, Dan Wells, from Fox 19 News, is coming to the University of Cincinnati campus to interview my co-editor, Liz Gnau, and I on a story we did for The News Record, "How secure is campus?"

The interview is Sunday, but the broadcast won't air until sometime next month, so I'll be picking at my nail polish for weeks until I'm able to watch myself on TV. Exciting, right?

Friends, family and foes, we're asking for your help.

Liz and I are unsure of what to wear. Liz is going for "I look good but I don't look like I'm trying to look good" thing and I'm shooting for fiercely fabulous but effortlessly chic. Clearly, the possibilities are endless.

Post comments with links, use Net-a-Porter or describe what you think would be perfect for Liz, me or make a suggestion for both of us! If you think you've got what it takes to come up with something TV-worthy, send your suggestions our way.

If we like what you have to suggest, we'll pick your outfit and try to emulate it the best we can with what we have to work with (our wardrobes). BUT, the lucky e-stylista will win a fabulous hand-made Valentine, sealed with a kiss and all, yours truly.

So, what are you waiting for?

To kind of help you out, here is a photo of Liz (that I straight up ganked from her Facebook) and a photo of myself ... for reference sake.


Here is my wonderful co-news editor, Liz.

And here is me...



Sike! OK, so the blonde really wasn't for me, but at least I gave it a whirl. The wig shops in Alabama are world class. ONTO THE REAL ME:




Ready, set, spaghetti, my friends! Give me us outfits worth wearing for our three second TV debut! You have until 11:59 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 14. GO, GO, GO.

Here you go, any of these outfits worn by Rachel Bilson would be FABULOUS for you. Seeing as how I've recreated two of them, I know hitting H&M, Forever 21, and maybe picking up a designer handbag and stilettos would complete them all for half the price.this

For your friend, I would suggest something along the lines of this... You can see Rachel Bilson is one of my faves.

I'm probably completely out of my depth here, but I checked out the link and found this dress and immediately thought of you.
For Liz, I'm not so sure, but I think separates would be better. Maybe this shirt, this jacket and this skirt.

Congrats on your fellowship/grant/intership thingy :D
