I just made my tv debut last night, SO proud! OK so it isn't REALLY my tv debut since I once recited a poem on regional telivision for poetry day (Jabberwocky ftw!) but still yo. It's in Dutch, but lemme tell you: my voice sounds ENTIRELY different in real life. My boyfriend didn't even recognize me. And to those confused by my accent: yes, I can speak BOTH Flemish Dutch and Dutch Dutch, depending on the context.
Original Video - More videos at TinyPic
MAJOR thanks to the AWESOME Inès who subtitled the video so my readers abroad can understand the ENORMOUS wisdom I imparted. Please pay attention to the amount of times I use the word "plezier" or "fun" in the description of my blog, ugh. Mind you, I absolutely said all kinds of intelligent things in the full cut of the interview but of course they had to edit it down to a few soundbites. You'll just have to take my word on that one.
Anyway: THANKS Vitaya and the Belmodo team!! I loved my little interview, and don't Kim and I look adorable? We were interviewed (AWKWARD CENTRAL, population: me) and got to put together some cute outfits in the Object showroom, and then we goofed around and took each other's pictures. I seriously kept doing the most over the top poses, I wish they had used that footage because it was HILARIOUS. Here's some pictures to give you guys an idea.
|ELEGANCE MAIS OUI|
The blazer was my favorite piece, very comfortable and stretchy and awesome, but I would wear both the outfits in a heartbeat. Also, lesson of the day: rust colored tights + brogue pumps go with everything.
And because I was feeling especially in the mood for some humiliation, I grabbed my mini laptop that has a crappy webcam and recorded this totally impromptu, out-of-synch, un edited, shaky and totally unfunny VLOG so you guys can FINALLY hear me talk in English, AND both Flemish and Dutch. I promise I'll do a better one soon! No idea how to fix the out-of-synch ness though, but if you keep watching until about 0:52 you'll have your sound align with your image.
gosh I might delete this later on, it really is an embarassment. And yes, I really didn't know it had already started recording, /facepalm
