POLYVORE LIVE



Above are pictures that took at the run through of the show that we had on Saturday, two days before the actual show. My dress was pretty body-conscious, with an attached corset inside, so practicing my walk in it with the sky high wedges I was supposed to wear was very much needed. It was a lot of fun getting into something so dressy and sexy, even if it wasn't totally me. That is what fashion is about . . . experimenting and stepping into a different pair of shoes for a bit. The fashion show was split up into four parts: two ready-to-wear collections, and then two evening wear collections. I walked in the very last collection, while Natalie opened the first collection and closed the last (of course, she is the real model out of us all! haha). My dress was designed by F.I.T. graduate Sergio Guadarrama of Celestino Couture.

Monday was the actual show . . . We all met at the venue at 12:30 PM and were in hair and makeup for hours. The show was scheduled to start at 6:30 PM. Yes, we had a very long, long day, but it was a great time getting to hang our with our blogger friends the whole time. We had our makeup done by Cover Girl. Never do I really get the chance to be in front of a bulb trimmed mirror like this, with someone working on my face and hair. It was sort of like something out of a dream. Let's just say, I enjoyed it. haha. For the collection I was walking in, my hair had to be put up into intricately coiled braids up on my head. My shorter hair called for major extensions to be added in (another first in my life). It was funny seeing myself with longer hair again. I couldn't help myself . . . I went up to the mirror, pretended I was Willow Smith and literally whipped my hair back and forth. It was awesome. So after those went in, the intense braiding began. I think I found about 100 bobby pins in my hair that night. I had to pull out those extensions, which was a pretty painful process, because no way was I showing up to work the next day with patchy long hair that slightly resembled that of a cave woman. But the end result was simply stunning. It was a very elegant look.



I was super stoked the entire day for the show. Not an ounce of stress or fear was running through me. I was just there to have a good time. You know me. But when it was finally show time and the first girls started strutting their stuff, it was then that I started to feel more nervous. Some of us were joking as we were lining up whether it was too late to back out of the show, or if someone had a bottle of vodka to calm our nerves with. Still laughing over all this. But my adrenaline rush never ended. Quite a funny feeling walking down the runway. You just have to do it. One tip, keep your head up, your shoulders back, and your mouth relaxed. You know, to keep from looking less like a psycho caught in headlights and more like an actual model. It really is an amazing feeling having your 1 minute of fame on the catwalk and camera flashes on all sides. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Thank you to everyone at Polyvore who was there to make this whole thing happen. From the fitting and the rehearsal to the day of the actual show, everything went perfectly smooth, and most of all was so much fun. And everyone has been so kind and supportive. Thanks for recognizing us little bloggers and involving us in something so grand.

And for those of you who didn't get the chance to catch the live stream of the show last Monday, you can still see it online here!
