just wanted to share this adorable video from the polyvore live event last week. if you didn’t catch my coverage from the show, you can see my photos here. and if you somehow missed it after all of my posts (sorry, i’m excited!), then you can watch the runway show here.
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!)
just wanted to pause for a moment to talk to you guys a little bit about what i’ve been up to besides visiting shows here in new york for fashion week. i know i’ve mentioned it here and there, but i wanted to formally announce that i was asked to walk in the polyvore live runway show today! no, i am not a model, but i definitely jumped at the chance to support fit alumni and emerging designers! as a blogger, i feel like working with small and independent designers is a natural fit because we’re all newcomers breaking into the fashion world and starting out our careers in this exciting field. i’m so excited and honored to be able to model a lovely evening dress designed by fit grad sergio guadarrama of celestino. thank you so much to polyvore, fit, and cover girl for sponsoring the event!
so if you want to watch the show, it will be live streaming right here at 6:30pm e.s.t. (3:30pm california time). but if you aren’t able to catch it, no worries! i’ll have my camera in hand as much as possible to share my experience with you once it’s over!
