Spoiler alert: I ran the Portland Marathon on Sunday as a long training run and had a little PR as well. It was amazing and exciting and I’ll post a full recap (along with my weekly training recap) later this week!
Today I’m here quickly to let you know about my guest post at Bella Moda: Oiselle show at NYFW by guest blogger, Dori (of Dori’s Shiny Blog).
Because I am a spectacular person (slash happening to have a husband who happens to run a swimsuit model website) I snagged an invite to the NOLCHA Oiselle show at NYFW — where they happened to be debuting their own swimsuit line. Fate!
I don’t normally care about fashion week, but I do love Oiselle clothes for both running and lounging. Like, a lot. Like, it is all I want to wear ever. I can’t even wear any running shorts other than Rogas because they are just that amazing.
Anyway, I figured if I wore a Oiselle tank to the show, it was acceptable to wear Birkenstocks on my feet. I am certain I was judged by many at this show (I happened to be in the front row) but really, at what other fashion show could I do that and not be escorted out by security?
This was clearly the only fashion show for me. And I was enthralled throughout the entire six minutes of it. I tweeted the many photos I took at the show and Bella Moda – an actual fashion website — saw my tweets and asked me to guest blog about my experience.
And guest post I did. I decided to leave out the part where I met the amazingly inspiring Oiselle CEO Sally Bergesen for the very first time in the restroom before the show because she told me my skirt was tucked into my underwear.
I figured I’d try to maintain some semblance of dignity for this fashion-loving audience.
But I know you guys would appreciate it. Head over to Bella Moda and read about this non-fashion girl’s experience at the NOLCHA Fashion Week Oiselle Show!
Thanks Bella for the opportunity!
