This experience was a first for me. I had dreamed of sitting on the front lines of a fashion show since I was a kid. Today, I wasn't just watching, I was so proud and excited to also take part in the show. The Lord & Taylor team graciously honored me and another incredible member of our community, Eva who is the Principal at Van Duyn Elementary School, with a congratulatory gift for our service to Central New York.
Before being brought on stage, I was pampered like a princess! An adorable outfit was personally picked out for me and my smokey eyes with red lipstick was creatively painted on by Chanel. After being brought on stage, Joanne Gabriel and her Lord & Taylor team presented me with a beautiful gift basket!
It was a pleasure to meet so many smiling faces. Thank you so much to everyone who made today's show successful and allowing me to take part! The honor was truly all mine.
