Ah… My favorite skirt. It’s about time I dedicated a whole blog post to it. This black corduroy skirt was a birthday present from my parents my freshman year of college, and I very distinctly remember unwrapping it in a hotel room in downtown Denver (in this outfit, I might add). But the details aren’t important—what is important is that this skirt has become arguably the most worn item in my closet! It seriously goes with SO much, the corduroy texture is perfect for fall, and I cannot recommend this style enough.

A few weeks ago, my mom forwarded me an email with the message, “You should give this a try.” As I scrolled through the images of the email to see what she was referring to, I realized it was a model casting call for Denver Fashion Week. You may recall that I wrote about my experience seeing a show at Denver Fashion Week last November, including how weird most of the clothing was and how strangely some of the models walked. Given the no-cost, low-stakes opportunity to finally launch my modeling career (rich with sarcasm), I figured, why the heck wouldn’t I try out? So I found a friend to go with me and we signed up to walk the runway at the casting call on March 1st. Continue reading “Didn’t Even Make the Casting Call”
