''So, um, what happened with the 'live blogging'?'' A gentleman asked me earlier in the week with a smirk, having read this piece:
''On a scale of 1-10, how much of a pretentious clown would I look like if I was to LIVE BLOG from a fashion show?! (Yes, live blog! As in sitting there with my laptop, typing away, while the models strut back and forth!) I estimate about a 10, but I guess I'll know for certain soon, because that's exactly what I've been invited to do this afternoon! (Cross your fingers that I don't make too much of a ninny of myself!)''
And that's when the groaning started. GROAN! Yes, I was supposed to attend Revlon's 'Top Speed' fashion show last Saturday (and live blog from the event!), but, you know, sometimes things happen. On this particular occasion, that thing was a bus, which was conveniently inconveniently late (if I didn't live an $87 fare away from the city, I would've just jumped in a taxi), and then stuck in heavy traffic for almost thirty minutes. Lame!
When I finally arrived at the show's destination, hoping that I wouldn't have missed a thing (even though I was running supremely behind, I was still only fifteen minutes late to the event itself) the security guard outside said ''oh yeah, sure. The show's almost over, but go right in.'' My jaw dropped. ''The show's almost OVER?!'' I squeaked. ''Yeah!'' He replied. ''There's probably only two minutes left of it, but go through to the back of the hall.'' I plunged through the doors and quickly scrambled towards the entrance, but alas, the show had started. Here's what I managed to see!
Terrific turquoise and luscious lavender. The theme of the show was colour blocking, and this was one marvellous maxi-dess!
An awful quality photograph (one of these days I'll upgrade to a proper camera!), but GORGEOUS clothes.
Blurry bloggers! There was a front row section reserved especially for them (uh, us). Pretty nifty and forward thinking on the company's behalf, huh? It's interesting to see how different types of ''media'' are being embraced these days. (Can you spot Joelyne from The Sydney Girl and Anita from Love Vulcanella? I can! Nice girls.)
The final roll-out of garments. Look at those rainbow hues! Sublime, sublime, sublime.
Transport woes aside, HEY! Sydney-siders! Did you know that there'll be Revlon 'Top Speed' Glam Vans buzzing about town this week, distributing free, full-sized nail polishes and dishing out manicures? Get on down!
J. - I DID! Eeeeeeeeesh it was beautiful. So, so beautiful. And you're welcome, I hope you had a super special day!
Lisa - Thanks Lisa, but oh weeeell, I guess!
Kayla - Aren't they?! They're so deliciously fun and fresh, like an enormous bowl of FRUIT!
I'm so sorry you missed some of the show, but how exciting you saw what you did! Those colors are fantastic! What amazing hues for the Spring!
Sorry to hear you missed the show. It sounds like it would've been quite fun.
This is like the story of my life! But it wasn't an entire loss, you did see some beautiful fashion!
Thanks for the b-day wishes! (It was Tuesday.)
