Runway Preview

Hello all! Apologies for the slight delay in blogging. We have two excuses for being AWOL. One, it's been an incredibly busy week for both of us (all this debate-watching, fashion show-ing has taken time away from blogging). And two, we've been trying to be more frugal - thanks to the economy going to pot - and frugality is time consuming (staying in to eat means taking time out to cook and clean, packing lunch means more time grocery shopping and preparing, not going to the dry cleaners means more time doing laundry. . . you get the idea).

Anywho, on to the fun stuff. As mentioned in a previous post, we were invited to be models in the Citysearch Fade into Fashion event Tuesday evening. Photos of our actual outfits from Meringue Boutique are on their way, but here are some teaser images:

These photos are deceiving because it looks like we're use to getting our makeup done for us. In fact I had no idea what the hell I was doing. I kept opening my eyes when I wasn't suppose to and I couldn't keep a consistent smile while the blush was being applied.


My hair was hairsprayed to death, but it still wouldn't hold, so I wore the hair clips up until the last minute. Lyle was a very patient makeup artist. I believe he is laughing at my face in photo below. . .hmmmm...


Even with getting our hair and make-up done and being able to wear fantastic clothes, the best part of the evening was seeing all the lovely peeps we've met through this blog. Tiffany Davis, editor of Atlanta's Daily Candy, was a fellow model and looked smashing in her outfit. I spotted June and Leila while teetering around on the runway. And we finally got to meet Jinah from Bonjour it's Jinah! (see image below).



More photos from the event to come!

How fun! I always twitch and freak out when somebody tries to do my eye makeup.

I can't want to see the rest of the pics!

Muriel Mercurial said...

Oh you guys are so pretty! I'm glad you had a good time.

I've put a moratorium on eating out for my boyfriend and I, so I've been doing a lot of cooking lately too. It's so time consuming, I'm starting to realize why we ate out so much- at this very moment I'm cooking lentil soup and biscuits. Bravo on trying to be more frugal though!

AsianCajuns said...

Thanks Stephanie!

Enc, just you wait ;) !

Cammila, I'm glad I'm not the only one! It's been so long since someone has done my makeup that it just felt really strange.

Muriel, bravo to you too! I just finished washing the dinner dishes. Takes forever - at least it feels like it!

Liz Blair said...

You guys are my kind of people - never let the poor economy ruin your fun! I have also been cooking more at home lately in order to try to make ends meet.

I must tell you though, every cloud does have a silver lining. A few months ago I started realizing that my faculty salary was not keeping up with the costs of living and I knew I had to do something about it. I borrowed some money from my retirement account in order to buy rental property and i think it was a good decision. Although the business has just about broken even in the first year, I can see it as something that will continue to grow more profitable in the future. I've also become closer to my dad, because we are planning to buy some houses together for the first time.

AsianCajuns said...
