Leighton Meester and Her Lucky Shoes

I have been watching re-runs of Gossip Girl here and there when I need some outfit, makeup, or jewelry inspiration. Those were some skilled and creative people behind the scenes of that show and I find a lot of those looks—and particularly the jewelry—still relevant today! I didn’t watch Gossip Girl back when it aired regularly since I had a baby and kindergartner at the time, was exhausted, and had no time for TV.

I recently read that Leighton Meester, who played bad girl Blair Waldorf, claimed a pair of Marc Jacobs shoes helped her land the role! Her luggage had been lost on the flight from LA to New York and she spotted a pair of red leopard Marc Jacobs shoes on a shopping trip right before the audition. When she saw the price tag she told her mother, “If I buy them I can’t pay rent.” Her mother’s response? “Rent can wait.” Leighton went on to say, “As I bought them I imagined that these would be the shoes that would win me the part. They did.”

One common task for marketers is resizing images to fit a blog post or another medium. While practically all of the image editors alternativephotographyinc.com in our list let you do this, if all you need to do is change the size of the image, a simpler tool might be enough. Here are three to choose from.
