I got the amazing opportunity to be a model for Nordstrom’s Prom Fashion Show with my best friend, Maddy. I loved reuniting with friends that I met when I was on the Fashion Board at Nordstrom Easton. Unfortunately the board came to an end due to lack of participation. If you are interested in fashion, want to learn more about the Industry, get a first hand experience with professionals, and willing to drive to Columbus once a month, contact me. We need 40 participants to get the program back at our location.
Our day started with the biggest decision…. the dress! We got to pick any dress on the floor for the show. I chose a dress by Eliza J with a soft silhouette and my favorite pattern, floral, for an elegant and girly look. Maddy chose a two piece dress by Xscape with a little bit of bling that was fun yet classy.
After we were dressed and accessorized we got our hair done, or touched up in Maddy and my case (we did our own hair). Then got our makeup done by the amazing Wes Villaflor (@makeupbywesvillaflor).
After the Show…
Ellie Auch is such a sweet friend. We met each other on the fashion board last year and went to New York Fashion Week together in February.

The fashion trends for Prom 2016 include embellishments, pastel colors, bling, two pieces, floral, lace, and cut outs, which are shown in the group photo.
The AMAZING ladies who organized the fashion show for us (along with Whitney who had to go home due to being ill). On the left is Cortlin, and on the right is Bethany. They were both so sweet and helpful! They are such positive role models and I strive to be like them. Experiences like this have inspired and motivated me to achieve my dreams and have given me the confidence to believe in myself. I hope that whatever YOUR dream is, you stick with it, and achieve it!!! You are worth so much, you are capable, and you have the world at your fingertips! Be ambitious, do what makes you happy, and never ever give up!!
To everyone going to prom this year remember to be confident in who you are, feel beautiful, and just have fun!!
From my heart to yours,
