Fashion for a cure + Bloggers brunch!4:49 PM
MERCEDES-BENZ RGV FASHION WEEK
So this past Sunday was a really hectic but fun day! The weekend was busy and spent preparing for our fashion show at the shop I work at, we gave 100% of tickets sold and 20% of clothes sold profit to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life! We did really well, had a sold out show, and boy was it intense but crazy fun.
Sunday began with "Bloggers Brunch" at Infusions, the area I live is hosting a 'Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week' so that's new to the valley, because normally, stuff like this doesn't make it down here in South Texas, so it's really exciting! A few bloggers from the area got invited to attend a week of events dealing with fashion, new designers, meeting make-up artists, and getting together spreading the awareness of just how much bloggers there actually are here in the 956. It was really cool to meet other girls who share a love for fashion, taking pictures of food, and knowing the struggle of getting someone to take your outfit pictures, haha. The next event happens later today actually and I'll be sharing that with you all as well later!
After brunch, I rushed over to the shop to get ready for the fashion show, because I was actually going to be walking in it, so that was quite an experience. I walked with 'Debi Lou' models, an agency here in Mcallen who teach girls how to professionally walk, and pose. It's a really elite place and have even taught 'Ylianna Guerra' Ms. USA first runner up, so that's really interesting. Although I will not ever be a model due to my short stature it was fun to walk the catwalk, and get to experience what it feels like to walk the runway! I enjoyed the experience so much, but behind the scenes, it's a mad house! You literally have like 20 seconds to change from one outfit to the next then get back out there and walk! So it's just a bunch of girls running around getting the next outfit, needing help with zippers, necklace clips, and buckling heels! Nevertheless, it was such a great experience I'm glad I got to go through, and the crowds energy was lively and vibrant, made my nerves at ease and it was such a fun show.
