featured bloggers and local influential people wearing outfits we styled ourselves with Gap's new spring line. It was fun to see everyone's individual, unique style and get all Tyra-esque on the runway. At first, I was all like:
First, I started strong with an ambivalent beauty queen wave...
Miss Jay and got it together. I walked down most of the runway repeating to myself, "be cute and normal, be cute and normal, be cute and normal," and it almost worked.
But then I got to the end of the runway, and I didn't know what to do with my hands. I remember I spun around and tried doing cheesy "fashion" poses. But after that, it was all kind of a blur. I could hear the emcee still reading my never-ending bio that Gap made the mistake of letting me write myself and I knew I had to stall. At this point, I completely lost control of my body, and I just started dancing. Just dancing at the end of the runway. Chest thrusts. Hip thrusts. Hands in the air. The whole time, I'm thinking to myself, "What are you doing? Why are you dancing? Stop dancing. Go back to the cute and normal thing." But I couldn't stop.
Luckily, no one hates me enough to post a video of it anywhere, but just to have some sort of visual, it was a little something like this:
(because everything I know, I learned from Mean Girls)
So there's the story of why I'll never be a model, and why no one should ever let me walk a runway ever again. Despite this, I'm so thankful to Gap for including me in this awesome event. Not only did I get to play dress up, but I got to hang out with some sweet blogger babez. Be sure to check out Gap for all your spring essentials, and see more pics of the event HERE!
