Recently I wrote a post about bravery & my pursuit of it. When Katie from Boutique Zekara called me recently & asked if I would be a model in their upcoming fashion show I quickly said yes without hesitation, feeling brave.
I felt less brave the night of though. Silly girl I am, as I now look back at the night & the photos taken by local photographer Beaver Smith of bigdayfoto & realize my age & size (& of course hair) made me a fun addition to the runway. I may not have felt brave in the moment... but I feel pride after the fact & that is an accomplishment as well.
You might recognize this dress as the one I almost bought for my brother's wedding in September. It is from Cherry Velvet. Super cute!
In fact all these pieces are from Cherry Velvet! This is one of their new styles & I can't lie... it wanted to come with me!! It is styled up a bit here but I had leggings under it at one point & it would be great for casual too. It might have walked out ON me if it wasn't pretty much sold right off my back! Boutique Zekara has other styles, fabrics & colours though for those of you who just fell in love with it.
So I moved outside my comfort zone, walked the red carpet & in the end feel braver for it... Success!
