**SFAS = Secrets from a Stylist. On HGTV. Watch it, people.**
Last night, we watched the show at home with our families. We ate pizza and salad and drank champagne to take the edge off of seeing ourselves on TV. When it was over, I, for one, was relieved! I thought it was a great episode and it was pretty funny!
For the "before" segment, Mike said he liked things that were old and worn and rustic. We pointed out that our old-looking (Target) phone wasn't even plugged in (it used to be, but we never used the phone line, so we got rid of it to save money).
It was pretty funny how Emily and I both wore red dresses, though mine is more of a pink-ish color, and lots of people said that we looked like sisters (I'm flattered).
I said that I don't like a lot of stuff, meaning that I like things to be really uncluttered and bare. At our meeting back in October, I said I liked "modern, but not too modern" and I guess I meant that I like clean lines an not much clutter, but nothing too crazy-out-of-the-box.
I said in the interviews (those times when we're talking to the director who is sitting right next to the camera) that I'm weird about jewelry and I won't wear a necklace if I'm wearing earrings and I won't wear a bracelet or watch on the same hand as my wedding ring. I really don't like a lot of stuff everywhere, which Emily said was the hardest part for her because she does. She admitted (though they cut it out) that it was hard for her to edit the first look to make it truly minimalist.
After this, we went to the studio space in the Hollywood Hills to film the Style Diagnostic. Stay tuned!! They edited this part like crazy!!
