I joined this group of fabulous, social media moms to strut and make designers take note that we aren’t 14 and flat-chested (we’ll probably rant about Marc Jacob’s poor decision making at some later date). We are women that come in all shapes sizes and colors. Everyone that strutted brought her own agenda. For me, I was out there to put the fun back into fashion. And boy did I have fun!
The event started with nails–I got shellaced! A shiny polish from CND that lasts 2 weeks. Franco from Cutler Salon styled my hair with Matrix products–it was big, bouncy and flirty. Makeup was provided by Le Metier de Beaute.
This may look like a sly smile–but I was nervous!
The shoes were really high. With all the leaves leftover from the show set I was worries about slipping.
Look #2: Rachel Roy (go here to buy the dress–$448)
Notice all the people? There were about 200 media members at the event.
At the end of the runway, there were about 100 cameras! I’d never experienced anything like this. Good thing, I’m a bit of a ham!
This was a once in a lifetime opportunity and a huge thank you to the five women (all social media moms) who dreamed this event. What did we prove? Motherhood doesn’t have to be the death of style. While we may be shorter on sleep, time and money since the kids came along, we haven’t abandoned our thirst for feeling great in our skin and our clothing.
