I was extremely excited when designer Raquel Allegra personally invited me to come to her fashion show! My friend Cristin came along with me and we had such a great time. The theatre that the show was held at was gorgeous; looked like a chateau in Europe with the detailed ceilings and walls and floors. Even the bathrooms were gorgeous - with their corridors and hallways and doors, and vanities (yes, that was just the bathroom).
As soon as the first model in Raquel's show walked out, it all became so surreal. That I am not looking at pictures of her artful pieces on Style.com; but that I am actually here and experiencing this in person. So on March, Friday the 13 or 2009, it was my lucky day. I had such a great time!
I loved before the show started, Cristin and I came upon some models practicing their walks before the show. Then afterwards, I saw a couple of Raquel's models still in her dresses walking around; some other models were changing back into their "street" clothes.
I saw another show attendee in the new Alexander Wang holey sweater and a black bolero hat; she looked very cute. There were many photographers all around, from 944 magazine to other bloggers.
I love this gorgeous dress. So irriating that I can't find it anywhere. The seller said it was a sample dress; so that was explanation enough. Sooo cute though. I love the silhouette. This dress SCREAMS me! hehe
I claim no right to these photos, as they are not mine.
I FINALLY got my Givenchy shoes today!! I didn't want to spend $2,000 on them and I finally found one's that look exactly like the Givenchy's for much much less the cost. I cannot wait for them to arrive in the mail. I am soooo ridiculously happy right now and just filled with that sweet anticipation that a shoe lover get's when finally finding that treasure they searched so long and hard for.
All of the following shoes are from Givenchy 2009. Looks that I love.
Ahhh, my Gladiator wardrobe is almost complete. Wait, nix that. I've loved the Gladiator style my whooole life. So now that it's "in" (ugh I hate being a part of a trend); I am STOCKING UP!!! :D
And as for those pink shoes...they are pink. Need I say more??
