i’ve been home from nyfw for a couple of days, mostly recovering from nearly two weeks with little to no sleep (yikes!), but also having tons of fun going back through the hundreds (ok, thousands) of photos i took during my trip. and of course, one of the most exciting experiences from nyfw was the opportunity to walk the runway for the polyvore live event!
we arrived at the venue at 12:30pm to start the process of transforming ourselves from fashion bloggers to “models” for the day. prior to the event, i had been taking photos backstage at several runway shows to get a peek at the hair and makeup before the shows, so it was quite a role reversal to find myself sitting in the chair getting primped and pampered by cover girl, sarah potempa, and tenoverten. and as you can see from the photos, i was barely recognizable after a full head of extensions and a very fancy updo with sultry makeup and a very glamorous dress designed by celestino. it was a surreal experience, to say the least, and i am so happy to have been a part of the event! it was tons of fun to play a model for the day and to try something completely new, though i definitely think i’ll be keeping my day job, haha! a big thank you to everyone who participated in the event!
if you missed the live stream, you can still watch the full video right here. (it’s a long video, so if you’re curious, i walk the runway at around the 23:36 mark!)
