Sport Luxe Fashion Show

Last week, I had the fun opportunity to model in the Sport Luxe Fashion Show at Fleet Feet West Hartford. The show was part of West Hartford Center’s Fashion Night Out, a collaboration of local businesses featuring fashion shows, drink specials at local restaurants, and fun events.

The Fleet Feet show was co-sponosored by Barcelona and SIGHT, popular West Hartford businesses. All the models in the Fleet Feet show wore workout gear and fabulous eyewear by SIGHT. The event included all the usual model-type preparations.

Eyewear labeled and organized.


Even polaroids of the models in order. It felt very much like a real fashion show, complete with walk-through, front row seating, a red carpet, and fabulous cocktails. All this was pulled together by Bridgette, a lovely person and incredibly organized leader. She’s also more fashionable than I could ever hope to be. She did a wonderful job and made sure all the models felt comfortable. Before long, DJ Leon began his show and the models took their places.

I took my modeling very seriously and even managed to walk a model walk – all my knowledge of modeling courtesy Project Runway. I had a great time showing off my sporty and luxe looks. I also met fellow blogger Caitlin, who is as gorgeous as a model and super fun. I hope we can meet again.

After the show, Barcelona kept the drinks flowing. I’ve heard there was an after-party, but this old lady was in bed, at home. My extra long, marathon training run beckoned. All in all, it was a fantastic event and I am so flattered to have been selected as a model.
