Remember this post? I said I would explain in the near future, and I am a woman of my word. So Stein Mart had a casting call in Dallas for their fall/holiday advertising campaign. I submitted my information via e-mail in late June and received a call a week later inviting me to come in for the videotaping session, which was yesterday. They were looking for die-hard, hardcore Stein Mart shoppers to be featured in their nationwide commercials.
I wore this outfit (minus the bracelets). There were about five or six other women whose audition time was the same as mine, and we talked to each other while we waited for our turn in front of the camera. The audition involved standing in front of an American Idol-style judging panel being videotaped while answering questions asked by the director.
I knew going into the audition that my chances of being selected were slim, and the director confirmed that when he explained that only a handful of women are selected out of thousands of hopefuls. We didn't leave empty-handed, though. Everyone who auditioned received a $50.00 Stein Mart gift card.
I'm a jewelry junkie, and I saw some gorgeous accessories as I was leaving, so I plan on heading to the nearby Stein Mart soon to add to my collection. It was a fun experience, even for someone like me who is painfully shy and was a ball of nerves throughout the entire audition. I'll be sure to let you know what I pick up on my trip to Stein Mart...
