My models were a mix of friends and volunteers so I got to spend some time with two of my very good friends from college — both pregnant and rocking the runway — as well as some new friends. Everyone looked gorgeous and I was very happy with how the outfits turned out. I am wearing a J.Crew skirt that I got at Avalon Exchange in Squirrel Hill for $10, Loft top, Nine West shoes, and a mix of J.Crew factory and vintage pearls.

My show was first, so it was kind of nice to be able to relax and watch some of the other shows. I was excited to mingle with friends and family after the show who were all very complimentary of my looks. The show seems to be growing every year. Last year I didn't feel much of a media presence, but this year, Fox 8 anchors were present as well as the online radio show who interviewed me, Elite Radio Show.

I could not have been ready in time without my Mom, who helped me iron all of the looks. Thank you, Mom! Also, a big thanks to my models who were outstanding and to Goodwill for asking me to be a part of this great event.
