Tre and I had called it an early night on Thursday because we were both modeling for La Muerte Apparel on Friday at the VLV 16 Fashion Show. We had an 8:00 a.m. MUAH call with strict instructions not to drink the night before and get plenty of sleep.
I'd like to go ahead and acknowledge that I wouldn't have any of these photos had it not been for Technicolor Cutie and Mid Century Pink. Thank you so very much ladies! I hope you don't mind terribly that I am using your photos.
For the fashion show, I walked once at the start of the show and closed the La Muerte Apparel set with a short Jive to "Why" by The Cue. If you have never heard this song, please hit play below and enjoy as it is definitely a favorite song of mine.
Additional photos of the fashion show can be found here.
After the fashion show, Tre and I headed to the pool to find our Denver friends (who were chatting it up with Si Cranstoun).
The picture on the far right epitomizes the weekend; full of joy and laughter.
I was so sad looking through my pictures because I realized my Alfred Shaheen dress is just not right for me. Not the color at least, which is devastating because they didn't make many in larger sizes.
I had to quickly leave the pool area to go to a fitting with Katherine from Whirling Turban. She had three items for me to try on; one of which I had been looking at online for months.
I first tried on a lovely hand dyed yellow playsuit with eyelets and a pure white petal bust. The bodice is fully lined and boned. Oh if only yellow were a good color for me.
The other item that I had been coveting for months, via the website, was the next item that I tried on; the most lovely polka-dot top and pant set. The moment I put it on I knew it was for me. Stepping out of the bathroom and in front of Katherine and my friends, I knew by their faces that it was for me. I felt like a pale, sexy Carmen Miranda.
Not only did I purchase this beauty but I wore it as my Friday night outfit. It was just too perfect not to.
Friday night was less interesting as a night for music (for me), so Marie, Mama Liz, Tre, and I headed out to a nice dinner at Canal Street (inside The Orleans). It was the first time the entire trip that I had a truly health meal; it was delightful!
A girl has to freshen up her lipstick before heading out again. Unfortunately it must be done at the table when there is no restroom in the restaurant.
Our last stop for Friday was the ballroom to listen to the Phat Cat Swingers.
They are a fantastic group and we had a wonderful time dancing to them.
The exhaustion of the 8:00 am MUAH call accompanied with no naps finally hit me around midnight (though I am sure the dancing didn't help). I called it a night and went back to the condo to set my hair for Saturday...
