Who's that Girl? | Skully Smith


Age: 28
Ethnicity: A little English, Irish, French and Cherokee Indian
Currently live: Orange County, California 
Day job (what pays the bills): I'm a floor supervisor for AllSaints, I also make and sell custom birdcage veils from my site


Baking, going to shows, making veils, watching documentaries, shopping, modeling, hanging with my husband and our 2 cats, traveling. 


I'm still trying to figure out the master plan. I would love to maybe open a bakery one day. 

Single/Taken: Wife to Dan Smith


I graduated college in Florida with a degree in Radiography. Since I moved California, I have instead pursued fashion, modeling, and my veil business. 

What was growing up like for you?

 I grew up in a very small beach town on the east coast of Florida. Everyone knew everyone. My father was the assistant Principal of my High School- so I always had the pressure to be on my best behaviour and make good grades-and I did. There wasn't much to do in my home town except go to the beach, go to shows, and hang out with friends. I also kept busy with Varsity and Competitive cheer leading. I had it pretty easy, really. I'm thankful that I have a great family who has always supported me 100%. 

Do you see yourself as Model?

 I love to model but I don't really classify myself as a "model" .

When did you become involved in modelling and what do you love about it?

 I have modeled here and there since college. I just love the process of coming up with a concept and hopefully translating it into a beautiful photograph. It's fun to get to convey a message or a feeling through a photo. 

What would you like to do it more in the future? 

There are plenty of amazing photographers out there that I would love to one day get the chance to shoot with! 

What do you admire in other women? 

Confidence and class.

Who is Skully? 

It's hard to sum someone up with just a few words. Get to know me! 

Where do you draw inspiration from? 

Things that trigger some sort of emotion usually inspire me. Those things can come from many different places, but usually music/lyrics, nature, photographs, fashion, and art. 

How would you describe your style?

I like to mix hard and soft, sexy and sweet. I love the idea of a contradictory look. Like a school girl-esque outfit but with garters and thigh highs to make it tart, or switch it up with docs and make it more of a 90's grunge look. 

Are you a fashion brands girl or do you just wear what you like or whats comfortable? 

I couldn't care less about brands. Don't get me wrong- I'm a huge fan of high fashion- but I don't think you need the name to make the look. I wear what I like and have fun putting it together, whether the outfit is expensive or not. 

What are your top 5 fashion staples you cannot live without?

 Skinny jeans, platform heels, a good fitting tee, garter tights, winged eyeliner.

Favourite places to shop?

 Too many to name! I tend to do a lot of online shopping where I can have all the stores at my fingertips! 

Who would you say is your style icon? 

A mixture of Dita Von Teese and Gwen Stefani. 

Tales of love & lust? 

My tale of love started in the summer of 2007 when I met my husband and its still going. 

What is it that you love most about being a woman? 

We are sexy! 

What do you find sexy? 

Confidence, health, and a sense of humour.

Is there anything you would change about yourself if you could?

 I'd love longer eyelashes and to not have to draw in my brows everyday! 

When no one is around what is Skully usually doing?

 Cuddling with my 2 fluffy cats and talking to them in ridiculous voices. 

Is there a public and private Skully?

 Of course. I can be shy around people I don't know and that tends to make me seem quiet and reserved. But when I'm home or around friends, I can let my guard down. 

If you were stuck on a desert island and your only shoe options were crocs or uggs what would you do? 

I'll take the risk of going barefoot.

What's your take on life and what advice would give any of your fans? 

Try not to take things too seriously. Always try to keep an open mind. Keep your friends and family close. And be kind to animals.
