Day 2 of Shows: Retailers and Boutiques
So this day was a little bit tough for me for 3 reasons:
-My walk and face were still not great from yesterday.
-my hair style stayed the same. If I had known better I would have shampooed and straightened so the stylist could have saved time and had more ease with my hair. I also would have been able to wear like the way I arrived at the airport. My blowout would have gotten me noticed for sure.
-I was not treated in a respectful way by someone in a professional position at the show, felt humiliated, and cried while getting my makeup done. The makeup artist had to pat over my tears.I’ll explain:
I was holding a mirror up, like I was the previous day watching this makeup artist do my makeup. I aspire to do freelance makeup and just wanted to see what he was doing. I wasn’t critiquing shit but the gargoyle that came by didn’t interpret that. Without asking or saying anything, she snatched the mirror out of my hand and started complaining to the model coach that I had it while I was getting my makeup done. And then the makeup artist was saying he didn’t mind but some makeup artist might. It something that didn’t need to go that way. I couldn’t move or else he’d screw up and I wanted to tell my coach I wasn’t doing what I was being accused of but I was so pissed and upset the tears just came. The day a bitch snatches a mirror out of your hand, stand up and get that shit back. I really wish I would have done so.
However day got better…FREAKING GABIFRESH AND HER SWIMSUIT COLLECTION! Yes I was psyched she was there! Couldn’t take photos backstage but she took a photo with me and sent it to me later! Freaking doll! Accidentally stepped on another blogger who took it super personal, she grunted something at me for sure.
Then that was followed by taking in the New York Stock Exchange and some other historic building, standing in the stairwell with the girls and hearing one, Roberta in the white, sing full on opera (an aria?), then hear Steph in curlers do a ventriloquist act that blew our minds, eating extra seafood salad with another model on the DL, lovely drag queen that’s been at all the events, the show, and getting this winning photo with our runway coach.
