I Made it through the Wilderness, Somehow

holding vogue+ wavy blonde hair+ DIY necklace

What I’m Wearing
* Ivory lace & crochet dress Corey Lynn Calter …I wore this dress for Thanksgiving last year.
* VS open cardigan… again. Really, these light cardigans have been a perfect addition to my Spring/Summer work wardrobe because no matter how hot it is outside, it’s ALWAYS FREEZING IN THE GALLERY.
* DIY leopard print and wooden bead necklace.
* Various bangles & stacking rings, earrings were a random find at the Farmer’s Market a few years ago. You gotta keep your eyes open for great pieces wherever you are.
* Tom Ford cat eye sunglasses.
* New – vintage Ralph Lauren bag from Ebay
* Modern Vintage Iris Open Bootie… from GILT

* September Vogue courtesy of drollgirl
* lipstick is just a rusty/berry liner with lipgloss

* Title: lyrics from Madonna “Like a Virgin”… in honor of the original MTV Video Music Awards, during a time when MTV actually played music videos as 99% of their programming. I didn’t watch the VMA’s last night. I’m not sure if it’s based solely on the above statement or a big sign that I’m old. Probably somewhere in between I suppose but I got a the basic rundown of it via Twitter.

This weekend was a total blur. I can’t even remember what I did on Saturday and Sunday I was amongst a house full of men drafting their fantasy football league. And now it’s Monday already. Where does it all go?

I am a little frustrated with Glamour.com for using a photo of my hair and my Waterfall Braid tutorial without my permission. In fact, they wouldn’t have even had to ask my permission had they just credited me as the photo owner… but alas, they did not. I bitched via Twitter with no response. I tweeted the author directly. I left comments. Still no response. I mean, this is a big magazine, you’d think they would do a little research before just blatantly stealing other people’s work, right?

UPDATE
The author of the Glamour.com article finally reached out via twitter then explained via email that it was an oversight and since she was working with a PR person from the salon listed in the tutorial, assumed that it belonged to them. She apologized and is in the process of crediting me with the proper links.

All’s Well That Ends Well.

Thank you so much for your support & loyalty & comments here and on the article. You guys are the best 😉 xoxoxo

    Doesn’t seem like magazines and stores have much respect for bloggers nowadays. I have recently read a lot about other bloggers, who feel the same way as you!
    But who can blame them – you rock! (NOT AN EXCUSE FOR STEALING YOUR PICTURE AND VIDEO!) :o)

    Love your dress! and your right the glamour should most definitely credit you, but honestly you do have very gorgeous hair so can’t blame them. But another thing is, magazines help make us readers appreciate bloggers more, just my opinion. Instead of admiring celebs style, i think bloggers such as yourself have more taste then alot of celebs. Came across something that you might find interesting, QR code for your blog! you basically take your iphone/android phone and scan the QR code and goes directly to your blog. http://www.speedbuy.biz/low-cost-advertising,-online-advertising,-facebook-marketing,-twitter-marketing,-ppc-marketing,social-commerce-network/833/create-a-custom-QR-code-for-your-sitebusinessproduct

    Wow! Glamour is definitely really pathetic for not being able to have someone of their own just whip up a hairstyle real fast. You have full right to be pissed about it. I hope someone answers you. On a brighter note, that dress is superb.

    i was going to post a comment with the article but refused to have to log in or register. kudos to the many girls who did give in. 🙂 and they credit your photo and link to that salon? totally wrong.

    Pretty! Your eyes in the first photo are STUNNING.

    Boo, Glamour. That’s really obnoxious! It’s really not that hard to linkback/credit a photo.

    Love your dress! Well you know you’ve made it when a big publication steals from you. Just a little sarcasm to start out this Monday. Hope they give you proper credit soon.

    Simple and STUNNING! Love the muted tones in this and that bag is so great!

  • Food, she thought.

    August 29, 2011 |

    Corby Kummer, a famous food journalist, asked permission to use some of my snaps for The Atlantic after they had already been published. Blogging is such a labor of love for most of us. I find this behavior on the part of big magazines/media outlets like bullying on the playground.

    That is ridiculous!! Frustrating if even the huge editorials don’t have that respect level for others. The good news is: you look absolutely fantastic in this outfit!! I love it, the accessories are PERFECT and the dress is stunning 🙂

    That is crap! They credited someone else for the photo…did you check Salon Capri’s page?

    I completely understand what you mean about the VMAs and quite frankly all awards shows these days. I, too, am old, but I also recognize a lack of real talent and true “outside-of-the-box” ness. Anyway, sorry about the situation with Glamour. Keep doing what you do 🙂

    Loved your waterfall braid style! I wish my hair was thick enough to pull it off.

    Bummer about the Glamour deal, but it looked like according to the comments that it was an honest mistake and the author is working on fixing it. 🙂

    Just checked out Glamour’s comment section and it looks like everyone’s on your side. I would have added my two cents but I saw the author issued an apology and I hope she really did get in contact with you.

    That dress is to die for!! And hopefully the bitch at Glamour gets fired for plagiarizing….

    First of all, it is unbelievable that Glamour did not credit your photo or anything!!! SHAME ON THEM!! Really? That is a bit unprofessional and uh…. RUDE!!! Ugh, I am like so mad for you. I’m sounding like they did this to me. But I am glad they are taking care of it.

    And second of all, your dress is beyond amazing!! I am OBSESSED with this dress!! You are so fabulous!

    p.s. have a lovely day. 🙂

    Hi Maegan,
    It’s Rita – just wondering what brand of lip pencil you are wearing here and where can I buy it? I’ve been looking for a rusted berry shade & this one seems perfect!

    Hi everyone. I’m the Glamour writer in question, and I just want to say we’d never ignore something like this on purpose–we’ve had a little hurricane situation going on here in NYC that resulted in us not being online very much over the weekend. Sorry it took so long for us to resolve the mixup–and it was an honest mixup! But one I very much apologize for. -Petra
