out. of. my. element!!!!
Headed downtown DC last night to show up and support CASA youth at a fundraiser put on by a DC Fashion blogger.
Courtney met me there and we deamed ourselves "Liza's Posse"
I felt really really really old.
Until one girl walked up and told me,
"Nice dress! Very Marc Jacobs!"
(who the crap is Marc Jacobs??? I'm just going to pretend like I know and pretend like he's super crazy fashionable and expensive, k?
she might have had a small heart attack when I told her it was actually not Marc Jacobs but 1950's vintage thrift store...thank you very much.)
It's ok. I was cool with my frumpiness because I was there to represent.
Jesus. Liza. Foster kids.
Represent! (say it with 'tude)
how cool was this for a venue??
(see the fun CASA sign over on the left?)
complete with a fashion show...
you see this girl below?
I totally bought a dress she wore in the show (no, not this one!) and I canNOT express to you how fun that was for me.
I have lost enough weight to buy clothes at a posh fashion show in DC atteneded by and targeted at young 20-something professionals.
(still have 20ish lbs to go, but this was a fun milestone and I want to remember it!)
the dress was fun, the fashion was exciting but the blessing that these ladies are in my life....
no words, I wouldn't do it justice.
(oh so out of our element, but precious still!)
love you ladies.
