Last weekend I was a model. That’s right A MODEL, unlikely as that may sound. I wore a wedding dress—two wedding dresses actually (not at the same time)—while walking down a runway. And you know what it was kind of fun.
It would be even more fun for someone fixing to get married. It was for The Lab Event in Sonoma, which was kind of like a wedding fair but more like a really fun party. All kinds of vendors were there showing off their wedding cakes, invitations, food, photo booths, the whole nine yards. And the venue itself, the Cline Cellars barrel room, was romantic and would be quite a dreamy place to tie the knot.
The fashion show models were mostly my fellow Bay Area fashion bloggers, inluding Natalie Goel of Like Fresh Laundry, Krystal Bick of This Time Tomorrow, Chandamheer Stacker of Pancake Stacker, Rebecca Gunthrie of 35-Inch Inseam, Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam, Anne Sage of The City Sage, Maria Morales of Kitties and Couture and Angela Tafoya of Refinery 29. And then there was an experienced model, Lluvy Gomez, who starred in cycle four of America’s Next Top Model! She now has two kids and can still rock the runway like a major pro. She just turned it ON walking down that runway and we all dropped our jaws and realized what amateurs we were (perhaps I should speak for myself but that seemed to be the sentiment!).
Bottom line, it was a fun day/evening, and the husband and baby came to support my modeling debut, which I appreciated very much. Here are his photos and (exciting) a video!
