Behind the Scenes: Texas 4000 Benefit Fashion Show

It wasn't my first fashion show.  I've been behind the scenes of shows before as a dresser (I used to volunteer to help out backstage at shows during college as a member of UFG).  And, at this point I can't even count the number of local shows I have witnessed and photographed.  But, last Thursday was my first real experience as being a model in a fashion show.  And, although my face twitched the entire time and I fear I looked like a deer in the headlights, it was a ton of fun!

The show was to benefit Texas 4000 and featured looks by 2nd St. District boutiques Langford Market, Mellow Johnny's, MISSBEHAVE, Duo, Gallery D, and Plain Ivey Jane.  There were a lot of outfits and pieces that I was really digging.  A favorite of mine and everyone else's included my 70s inspired high waisted bell bottom Rebekka Taylor jeans from MISSBEHAVE.  Everyone was really lovin' these jeans.  Flared jeans are a big upcoming trend right now and a lot of fun to wear.  I definitely suggest wearing them with some platform wedges.

A big thanks goes to Suede Salon for doing our hair and Evie Evan for the makeup.  Due to some miscommunication and last minute planning of the show, it was only hours before we were supposed to walk and there wasn't anyone to do our makeup!  Local makeup salon Evie Evan stepped up to the plate and did everyone's makeup in record timing.
