Walking The Runway

Many of us have fantasized about walking the runway.  Wearing some impossibly-beautiful designer dress, with perfect hair and makeup, strolling down a narrow path while being careful not to fall, all while being watched my dozens of sophisticated fans of fashion.  Well, for one of us, that dream came true!

My favorite new blogger, Claire, won a competition on kaboodle for her creative styleboard.  Claire and four other winners were wined and dined in New York City where they modeled in a fashion show.  The show, sponsored by Bloomingdale's and others, was streamed online and recorded in a video.

Claire tweeted and posted about the experience, which was the envy of many -- including me.  Her post about it is here.

I like Claire's blog for several reasons, the first being her distinctive trademark style.  Unlike many of us, Claire has a signature look that transcends the clothes she's wearing.

Plus, she updates frequently with interesting subjects, amusing prose and delicious photos.  Everything you want in a fashion-blog.

Despite starting her blog only in March, Claire has quickly amassed a large following.  Many readers enjoy her personality and musings.  You might, too!

  2. Aww! Thank you so much for making this post about me! I got so excited when I saw myself in the blogger feed but it wasn't on my blog haha. I felt kind of famous that someone else is blogging about me. You're so sweet. =)

  3. Thanks for the pointer to a new blog! It's hard to develop a signature style, though this old dog continues to try to learn new tricks. :)
