A few weeks ago, I was honored to rock the runway in a very special fashion show. It’s called the Look Good Feel Better Fashion Show and is produced by the Memorial Cancer Institute and held at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood. All of the nearly 30 models have or have had cancer. Since my diagnosis, I’ve not felt as comfortable in a group as I did that night–bald head, brow-less, and wearing fake lashes. It was a kinship that can only be shared by ones that are on the same path as me. It was WONDERFUL!
From the moment that I walked into Dillard’s to get fitted, to the moment that it was over and they were shutting off the lights, I had an absolute ball! Yes, the clothing was provided by Dillards. Special shoutout to Bloomingdale’s at Aventura Mall for supplying my shoes and the amazing Celso Olaguibel of MAC Cosmetics for making me look runway ready.
Each model had two looks–casual and formal. My first look was a nautical themed outfit from Adrienne Vittadini. The pants are on sale now–check this link! The shoes are Tory Burch Cap Toe Ballet Flats. You can check them out here.
Tell me that I wasn’t working????? Sashay, Shauntay!
The second look was a formal gown in a mauve color. Since I can’t find the Dillard’s link, I guess they are sold out. I paired the gown with multicolored Keds from the Kate Spade collection.
Many of my friends came out to support me, but honestly, the crowd wooted and hooted for everyone. We felt so special! What a grand time! I can’t wait for next year!
