We were so excited when we were chosen as one of Tootsies Dallas Top Bloggers for 2014 and have had so much fun over the past couple months collaborating with the Dallas team and the other five bloggers chosen! As three girls who love fashion more than anything, getting to play dress up in a store full of beautiful designer clothes for a photo shoot and fashion show is like a dream come true!
Last week Tootsies hosted the Top Blogger Finale Fashion Show at the store and we had an absolute blast. We had so much fun getting curls and blowouts from Shawna at the Pin Salon again, and loved our bold looks from the amazing Blusington crew! We each chose a look from the store to wear during the event, and since Elizabeth and James was the spotlight designer of the event, we each chose a piece from their newest collection!
Each blogger styled five looks for the models to wear on the runway. We chose “Elegant Contrast” as our theme to represent our differing yet similar styles through the ultimate color contrast, black and white. We also wanted to highlight our love for Dallas events and parties by choosing styles that can be worn to cocktail and evening events. With Ellen’s love for crop tops, cut outs, and leather, and Blair and Janie’s love for prints, silks, and classic shapes, our collection blended together all of our styles to come together as one clean and trendy look.
As our models strutted the runway in our favorite looks, we were interviewed by the hilarious and adorable Courtney Kerr: star of Bravo TV’s “Most Eligible Dallas” and “Courtney Loves Dallas”, as well as host of Dallas “Broadcast TV”. Judges for the event included Shannon Yoachum, Samantha Stewart, Heather Anderson, Rhonda Sargent Chambers, and Jen Smith.
Though it feels like the entire event flew by for us, we had such an amazing experience and loved meeting so many amazing people! Congrats to Dallas Tidbits, as well as all of the other wonderful girls! Big thanks to Tootsies for such an amazing experience, and also James Edwards for capturing the whole night. We can’t wait to see which lucky bloggers are chosen next year! xo
We loved meeting the adorable co-founder of Blushington from California
