Last Thursday I went to my first Fashion Show! Before you think I’m all fancy now, let me assure you this was the Fleet Feet #seeandbeseen Fashion Show, held at the Second City theatres in Piper’s Alley. It was a lot of fun, and I met up with Emily to enjoy the evening.
Here were three things that I liked the most about it:
1. Entertaining Show:
2. Cute Clothes for sale. Not only for viewing, but I picked up some good winter clothes for myself. I got an Icebreaker long sleeve, which I’ve been wanting to try for years (spoiler alert: it’s very warm!) and also Mizuno Breathe Thermo tights, which I’ll be debuting on my run this afternoon (in the 27 degree weather). If I had an unlimited budget, I woudl have gotten stuff for everyone on my Christmas list!
(The photo of me is not from the fasion show, but I’m wearing the new Icebreaker top — striped, stylish & functional!)
3. Fun goody bag with take home stuff!
This is just a small bit of the stuff! There were two headbands, a pair of socks, two water bottles (one glass one- score for office-time hydration!), a paper doll of Lauren Fleshman, and a shoe caddy for travelling with shoes.
Would I go again? Maybe. The fashion show was a lot of fun to see what’s new in running clothes, however I didn’t like how crowded it was in the store after the show. Tons of people mingling and trying to find the clothes, eating appetizers & drinking cocktails. I felt like I couldn’t move around without bumping into someone. However it does benefit the Imerman Angels charity, with 20% of the proceeds from the event and sales that night going to the charity. I’d probably go again next year if I don’t have anything going on.
