Allison talks fashion on NBC morning show Studio 5.


I went on a local NBC morning show called Studio 5 this past Thursday to talk about accessorizing outfits. I learned a few things about myself:

1. I’m a hand talker. Jazz hands flailed all around me, out of my control while I excitedly talked about accessories.
2. I don’t get nervous for live TV. Go figure.
3. The next time I do an on-air interview I guarantee I will have the plague, swine flu, or something worse. I literally woke up with a 10-pack-a-day smoker’s voice and cough a couple of hours before I went on the air. Awesome.
4. I actually had a lot of fun doing live TV. Serious. Actual fun.
5. Which leads me to #5. Count the number of times on the video I say *fun*. I guarantee it’s at least 5, or 6. Maybe 7. Also? I say *crazy* a lot.

Viktor and Charming came with me to lend moral support. Charming was totally Charming and ended up with a handful of cookies before we left the building. Figures. He was asked not to whistle off camera though; he can’t help himself, he’s a whistler. A happy kid with not to many worries on his mind.

Getting *miked*. That doesn’t sound good, but the guy was really nice.



Warming up my jazz hands. And jazz face too apparently.



There’s a lot of behind the scenes action going on during a show. A lot of people quietly running around behind the scenes to keep things moving smoothly. It was pretty surprising to me just how many people can fit in a studio. I didn’t count, I’m just saying. It’s a lot.

Jazz hands in full effect. Notice the belt on the form? Headband by Susan of Freshly Picked. Were I to have a waist so small, I would totally do that.

  17. MostlyFlumxd :

    Crazy Jazz hands are Fun! Loved it…

  18. The Glamorous Life Association :

    Great job!
    I spent friday doing live segments for Disneyland….well live to tape. One take things.

    And the comedy of all? I finsihed each segment with JAZZ HANDS. Otherwise they just kept rolling and rolling…so it became my thing. Just to say and "JAZZ HANDS" everyone! And do like a dance step with the hands….

    So I cracked up when you mentioned it.

    You looked great and did an awesome job…

    :)

  19. Petit Elefant :

    Susan,

    Stop it. You have to open a store, like yesterday.

    Liz,

    So it's final, I have to start smoking to get the hot milf-y voice.

    P.S. I didn't even show her any D.I. finds!

    Lisa,

    Thank you, it was a ton of fun. Who knew I wanted to do TV when I grew up?

    Leadia,

    Thank you! Totally unintentional sexy voice. Hand talking madness? Seriously? Twins in passion.

    Neva,

    Next time? Sewing them to my sides. Or gluing them into my pockets.

    Angry Julie,

    *snort* It was more *fun* than you can shake a stick at. Indeed.

    Glamorous Life,

    Your interviews rocked! Who knew it was fun to be on TV? But honestly, I need Jazz Hand Help. JHH. Totally out. of. control.

  20. Lori :

    Your voice just sounded sexy… that's all. :)

  21. MTDA :

    bravo. Guess who is Replacing Oprah?

    Eres tu.

  22. Petit Elefant :

    Lori,

    That voice! I think it's unanimous. Maybe I go in for some vocal surgery to change me to scratchy throat permanently?

    MTDA,

    You are too charming. Oprah, here I come!

  23. Erin :

    you are so funny and cute and now famous! congrats!!

  24. Petit Elefant :

    Erin,

    You slay me with kindness. Famous for a smokers voice, for what it's worth.

  25. Hilary :

    I finally got to watch your segment today. Way to go! You did a great job. I loved the voice, it made me laugh.

    P.S. Can I have the scarf when you are done with it?

  26. Petit Elefant :

    Hilary,

    It was a blast!

    p.s. the scarf was from my own personal collection, love it to pieces.

  27. Marie {Make and Takes} :

    LOVED this! You did such a great job. And I love those behind the scene pics! So fun!

  28. Dandy :

    How exciting! I would have been totally terrified!

  29. Petit Elefant :

    Marie,

    Next time you go, I'll come with and snap the pics.

    Dandy,

    I really and truly thought I would be, but it was fun. *fun* I've done it again.
