WWW: Whitney – We aspire to be as cool

Date posted: September 5, 2012 | By:

When I met Whitney – creator & editor of the artsy & amazing LA blog – hoopLA, at the Angeleno Poolside Beauty event last week, I immediately thought one word: COOL.

Then I saw her, the next night at Rosa Mexicano for a delicious dinner hosted by Nicole Myden PR and Gina Wade Creative. There, Whitney was again looking, you guessed it, COOL.

She’s one of those people you see and think, “I wish had been born cool like that.”

I was NOT born cool like that. Hence, why I probably bake and love pink and act like a happy, oblivious 5-year-old most of the time.

I aspire to be cool, though. Really, I do! It might not happen but people like Whitney give me hope.

But sometimes cool people can be, well, cold.
So imagine my delight when, after chatting with Whitney, I realized she is not only cool but super sweet — and fun!!

When I asked her if she would be my Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday (WWW) girl this week and send me a picture of her amazingly cool nails in better lighting, she was enthusiastic and adorable and hmmm….what’s the word I’m looking for?

Oh right. C-O-O-L.

BF: That’s Cool. Is this, like, a signature shade for you?

WWW Whitney:  I have always loved doing my nails, so the more creative the better. I wore this combo all week! To work, jury duty (ha ha ha), blog events, dinners… Right now, I think I can say these are signature shades for me. I go through spurts. I was in a navy blue phase for a while and now I can’t seem to get enough of bright pink!

 

BF: Me too. Very cool. Who did you hang with when you were sporting these, um, COOL hues?

WWW Whitney: I wore it with friends, fellow jurors, coworkers and PR contacts. I am fortunate that I can get away with bright, creative nails in my profession.
BF: And what a cool profession it is! I loooooove hoopLA!  Now, back to business, how did you decide on those nail polish products?
WWW Whitney: I am very into the multi-colored nail polish trend, so I figured I’d mix it up with 2 colors (2 being pretty close to each other).
BF: Where’d you get the goods? (Me trying to be cool. Fail.)
WWW Whitney: The Estée Lauder polishwas given to me by my mom because she doesn’t wear bright colors. The New Black and the OPI colors were given to me in beauty bags at blog events.
BF: Super cool!! (ugh.why did I say that? that’s sooo not cool)
So is this mani just a special event thing or do you sport it every day?
WWW Whitney: I wear this out every day. For special occasions, I would do the same, just maybe go and get a proper manicure.
BF:  How does this mani make you feel?
WWW Whitney: These products make me happy. I always get compliments on my nails and I like looking down and having such bright, colorful combos brighten my day.
BF: And we love you brightening our day! Thank you! And, well not to be repetitive, but for giving us some coolness to aspire to. Cool. 
I’m hopeless.
