Living in London and Hove for 10 years I didn't really know what was going on in Aussie fashion but I thought I should perhaps look a little designer authoritative like. I don't know why but I had the fashion madam from the Incredibles in my head when I got ready to go down to London. I decided to wear some oversize frames. I thought 'Yes the nerdy glasses make me look like I know what I'm talking about'.
Well I did the test and waited to hear back from Granada. The next day I had THE phone call "Umm hi Amanda, listen we love you but the guys at Channel 9 are not sure about you because of the glasses. Can you go back to ITV tomorrow and do another test umm without them". OMG, my heart sank. The stupid thing is I don't even wear glasses. Well second time lucky I got the gig without the eye wear.
I found them in a box while I was unpacking the other day in my new apartment and decided to finally wear them out in Australia. I have to say I still kinda like them even if Channel 9 doesn't. :-)
