Dress to Impress…but really

“Dress to Impress.”

We have heard that quote throughout our lives, and more often as we have grown older looking for internships and jobs. I believe however this needs to be taken into consideration for more than just a job interview, but in our everyday lives. You never know who you are going to meet that could potentially be a great networking opportunity. Also- You may be given an opportunity where you really wish you would have taken that extra time to make yourself look presentable.

Our last day in New York City we (Hannah, Remi, Beks, Taylor, Lindsie and myself) just rolled out of bed and headed on over to Good Morning America. Thinking we would just be outside we didn’t shower and just got bundled up to view the show from the outside audience. Little did we know this was about to turn into one of our most adventurous mornings of NYC.


At Good Morning America I was able to squeeze my way to the front of the crowd and was in good eye of the camera. My uncle recorded the show that morning and they were able to see me several times on the television, freshly rolled out of bed with no makeup on.



After fighting the cold we were headed down Times Square to find some breakfast when we were stopped by IHOP  to participate in a market research commercial. For the commercial we had to test breakfast sandwiches and say what we thought about them. The were filming us as we ate to get our reactions for the commercial. Here we were facing TV opportunity number 2, not well put together.


Katie Couric Show:

While we were waiting to make our commercial debut a lady came up to us and asked us if we wanted to go to the Katie Couric Show. This show is taped with a live audience. Right after we were done with the commercial we booked it to the ABC Studios to make it for the show. We made it just in time, and thank goodness we were in the back. We walked in and everyone looked really nice and here we were in sweatshirts and jeans. This became TV opportunity number three un-showered, not put together and no makeup.


Long story short…always dress to impress you never know when you are going to run into someone who can help further your career, or in our case put us on TV.

    I love thatbyoubwroe about our appearance that morning, that no matter how we dressed(except for Bekah who dressed to impress) , we were still selected to participate in all these great opportunities. I know we were all very excited and as we weren’t all fully dressed in our finest attire, but all looked out for one another to be able to look the best we could at each time. From fixing hair last minute on the Katie show, to fighting off the crazy alligator woman assaulting us at gma, we all stayed with one another to make sure we all looked ok and had every opportunity that was presented.
