The Dress


I am still posting about the Conference in Buffalo because so much happened to me during that week! One of the first things I found out when I arrived at the hotel was that I was going to be modeling in the fashion show. Now, I am not a model..... but I have to say, it was a lot of fun to be one for the day! I was asked to try on a dress, THE DRESS which turns out was the grand prize winning dress of the design contest. I tried on the dress because, well..... I could fill out the cup size. The dress was made by fellow designer Renee' Barnes and was really beautiful. The bottom of the dress was a lace alpaca and literally floated when I walked. It was so soft, so comfortable. The top was free form crochet over a strapless bra. I was a bit smaller than the bra, so I had to be tapped and stuffed in there and I was nervous the whole thing was going to slide down! Here is the picture taken of me after I came off the runway by Drew Emborsky.... I needed some spray for my tan lines!! (that's model speak.... way cool, or that's what I was told)

Renee' blogged about the dress and her winning, and she even asked me to answer some questions and put it up on the newly featured designer profile. Thanks Renee' for the opportunity to wear that beautiful dress and the designer profile!

OMG you look fabulous! You were VERY brave to wear that - I have a huge fear of strapless dresses. The girls just won't let me do it. You look so lovely with your "winter hairstyle". :)

They were mine. :-) Naturalizer's "Prissy", 7W. Add that to the list of stuff I got to do at Chain Link 2009. Provide Cinderella with her slippers!

Doris, you are lucky you are so fiesty, I may have stolen them! They were so comfortable (and if you look closely you can see my band-aids from my other shoes that week!) My Chain-link experience wouldn't be complete if I didn't get to hang out with you!
