The Fashion Is Never Bottomless fashion show was on Monday; our efforts helped to raise $1300 for Bottomless Closet NYC. We blodels (blogger models) had a great time meeting one another, getting made up and walking the catwalk for a good cause. I modeled this funky little frock by astrophel+stella designed by Kristin Klonoski. There were 7 other designers who loaned their clothes for the cause: Gwen Beloti, Viva Aviva, Hare + Hart, Caycee Black, Tracy Reese, Rebecca Taylor and Dr.Jays.
I was under the weather on Monday, so all thoughts of tripping were replaced with hoping not to sneeze in the middle of my walk! But, as soon as the music started and I walked out on stage, my inner show-woman emerged. I smiled, pulled my shoulders back and strutted my stuff just as if Ms. Jay shimself had given me private lessons. I’m a ham at heart, so I got out there and had a good time! FYI – Catching a glimpse of my own private cheering section is what resulted in that extra big smile above.
