Ready for the Runway!

This afternoon, I went to my fitting at Lord & Taylor for Friday's Fashion Plates show. It was amazing! For the first time in my 44 years of life, I did not look at price tags before bringing clothes into the dressing room! (I did, however, glance at a few tags after trying on some items and WOWZA! I could have paid my rent with the outfits we rejected. )

Another first: I didn't pick out any of the clothes that I tried on. I was accompanied on my "shopping" expedition by a representative from the Jones New York and Anne Klein collections. The lovely woman named Lisa had a sister with MS and was donating her time to the event.

I get to wear four different outfits in Friday's fashion show and I am going to look AWESOME if I do say so myself. One dress is so gorgeous that I've decided I will buy it and wear it if and when I am invited to one of Barack Obama's Inauguration parties. So, if you want to see me in the dress and you will not be attending the fashion who, you need to bring me as your guest if you score tickets to one of the January 20 Obama events in DC.

I really enjoyed meeting several of my fellow real women with MS models. It's so not true what people say: We models are not coniving bit%&es!

So, stay tuned for photos and maybe even a video of my walks down the runway. Shoulders back, chin parallel with the floor, one foot in front of the other, swing my arms, and strut it like I mean it!
