You would think that on the runway I was going to be terrified, but actually I had so much fun and a lot more confidence than I thought I would walking out in front of 600 people! All eyes were on me and, unlike normal, I loved it! It was the best feeling ever and I had a blast!
So some of you are probably like "OMG WHAT DID YOU GET TO WEAR"... and let me tell you! As a whole group, we modeled looks from stores: Vera Bradley, Anthropologie, Cowgirl Princess, ABS, White House | Black Market, Bloomingdale's (including my fave brand Free People!!), and Katelyn's. We also got to model a formal dress, from any store we wanted so it was awesome seeing ever girl's taste shine through! Mine was bright, obnoxious, neon ORANGE with big giant silver bedazzles... soo not me! (Pictures below; it's much prettier than how I described it.)
It was really cool because, my mom being in charge of the show, let me go with the modeling coaches/stylists to pick out the outfits from Bloomie's and W|B! It was a dream come true, I got to miss school and I got to style! They were so nice and really listened to my opinions, and now after that experience I know that it's what I want to do with my life! SOOO LEGIT! I was able to help the two ladies pick out some really great outfits for all the other girls and I would do it again in a heartbeat! I was also really satisfied with what I got to model in the show. I modeled Vera Bradley, Katelyn's, Bloomingdale's (Free People), and my neon, caution cone prom dress. For Vera Bradley, I modeled an ADBOOOORABLE green, yellow and turquoise floral mini-print bag. I modeled an aquamarine flowly, more boho styled dress with a really cool neck detail (it was paired with a black belt, two necklaces, and a pair of leather wedges). At Bloomie's I modeled Free People (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) wearing a long purple, floral skirt, a white and black polka dot tank top and a grey/white striped shirt.
Overall, I can say that it was an amazing experience and I loved it so much because it was all based on fashion... I wish I had gotten more pictures from the pre-award show. Everyone there was dressed soooo beautifully. Take a look at my dream come true...
