Legally Blonde the Musical!!

Bailey Hanks is a true southern belle from Anderson, South Carolina. She is the winner of the MTV Hit reality show, “Legally Blonde The Musical: The Search for Elle Woods” replacing Tony Award nominee, Laura Bell Bundy, in July 2008. Being a huge fan of the musical, and Bailey, I was fortunate to sit down with her for an interview.

Q1. How did you find out about the auditions for MTV’s “Legally Blonde The Musical: The Search for the next Elle Woods?”

I found out through one of my good friends that went to college with me. She found out about it on Playbill.com then told me, I said to myself, I have to do that!

San Francisco Bloggers Corner:

Check out my interview with San Francisco Fashion Bloggers, Laura Ellner of On The Racks and Jennie Lodge of Going West!!

Q1. What inspired you to start your blog?

Jenny: I started Going West as a blog to chronicle my move from Iowa to San Francisco. It was a great way for my entire family to know how it was going. Several months later, I decided to use it as a place to document my outfits. I wanted to push myself to develop my style, and my logic was that if other people were looking, it would be motivation for me to keep posting and trying new things. It's like making a promise out loud to the public - they expect you to keep your word. 

Laura: I started OnTheRacks because I was looking for a creative outlet where I could express myself and my love for fashion. My boyfriend got a nice camera for Christmas just before I began blogging, so it was perfect timing and we both found ourselves a new hobby! 

Rachel: I started Rachel The Stylish Wanderer because fashion has always been my absolute passion. Teens often ask me about the latest trends and style advice. was looking for a way to communicate my fashion inspirations so the idea of starting a blog grew steadily.
