Hello hello babes, and Happy Valentines Day! I'd like to first apologize for going a bit MIA on the blog the past few weeks. So far, this year has been wonderful, but completely jam packed! My life has been crazy busy since I returned from my mini vacation to LA. However, today has been GREAT as I just finished dressing my last fashion week show and am still giddy from launching The Backstage Boutique yesterday! I am so thankful for everyone's support and encouragement! This blog post doesn't have a specific subject -- I just wanted to do a little check in with you.
Happy Twitter Tuesday! If you're new to my blog Twitter Tuesday posts are dedicated to answering questions I receive from readers on social media. Please always feel free to tweet, DM, or email me any questions you’d like answered in a future blog post. I love answering your questions and hearing what you all have to say!
This week's edition of On The Road features the multi-talented Missouri native Eric Geil! Eric is currently touring the country with the Tony Award-winning musical The Book of Mormon. I was so excited to set up a photoshoot for him with local photographer Ember Langley while the show was in Orlando! I hope you enjoy getting to know Eric and learning about his life on the road.
This week's edition of “On The Road” features my sweet friend, Colby Lindeman! Colby is a Wicked Broadway alumni, an incredible dancer and one of the genuinely nicest guys you'll ever meet.

I am so excited to kick off my new blog series “Broadway Sessions” by introducing you to my dear friend, Amber Owens! I met Amber back in July of 2015 on my very first night swing-dressing at Aladdin. She was literally the first actor I dressed at that show, and I could have never imagined that day (as I nervously scribbled down costume notes)...
Hi guys! I was inspired to write this blog post when I received the following message last week: “Hi Teale! I loved your blog about things to do in NYC and the blog on rooftop bars. A lot of Wicked fans are coming to NYC the first weekend in February to see Jessica Vosk in concert at 54 Below. She was Elphaba in Wicked on tour.
This week's On The Road interview is with my gorgeous friend Claudia Yanez! She is a Boston Conservatory alumni and is currently traveling the United States with the first national tour of the hit Broadway musical On Your Feet. I have loved watching Claudia live out her dream the past few months and hope you enjoy her interview!
This is an extremely bittersweet week, as last night, my dear friend Courtney Rhodes Reed took her last bow in Aladdin on Broadway and is moving to Los Angeles. She has been with the show since its inception and originated the role of Princess Jasmine. Courtney was my very first friend at Aladdin, has become one of my best friends and feels like family.
