Oh, Adelaide…

Well, our first two contests went off without a hitch, so naturally something had to go wrong by now. Shortly after selling out on tickets for our third show, Ricky invited Sophie, Callie, and I to a party celebrating our first two fabulous successes.

Once I learned it was going to be hosted at the poshest restaurant in town, of course there was no way I’d say no!

Who doesn't love a night out with her best girlfriends?

I mean, who doesn’t love a night out with her best girlfriends? 😉

However, we were all surprised and more than a little sad when Ricky’s older sister, Adelaide, decided to crash the show.

Needless to say, this was NOT the outcome we’d planned for…

Now, it seems, Adelaide will stop at nothing to see Ricky stop pursuing fashion, and that leaves the city with no place to host our shows. But not if I have anything to say about it…

I know there’s got to be a way to win this girl over, and I won’t stop trying until I do!

Suddenly Stylish

It’s been months since I’d attempted an entry in the International Contest, or any fashion contest here in town, for that matter. I’ve had mixed successes with the International Contest in the past, and was stuck on one particular theme for so long that I almost threw in the towel. But earlier this month, I decided to give it another shot—just one more time. And, with the perfect outfit, I…

...WON?!?

…WON?!?

Well, after that victory, you better believe I gave it another go—and another, and another after that! Putting time and care into my outfit choices seemed to really wow the judges, because they handed out trophies and prizes from the exclusive brand Teatro Amare like I was some sort of fashion prodigy. And according to Avery, that’s actually what I am…

No one has ever won all of the themes before! Girlfriend, what ARE you?!

I have to say, it feels pretty good to not only have won the International Contest once or twice, but to have crushed it, to have complete and utter victory over it. I got to work with some of the top models in the business…

Spec-tac-u-LAR!

…and to attend the most posh after-party that I think I’ve ever been to.

Yes, that's right--it felt FABULOUS!

Yes, that’s right–it felt FABULOUS!

New Girl in Town

Today, on my way to the Contest Hall to style a model for my second Elite Contest, I had a flash of inspiration and shot a text to my neighbor who lives a couple of apartments down the hall. She’s just as into fashion as I am, and Avery and Michaela didn’t see a problem with us styling something together, so that’s just what we did. It’s too bad my cell ran out of battery halfway through, or I would have gotten a photo of her and her winning model.

My Second Contest

1/20/13

My day started out with some low-key closet browsing. Because, let’s face it—for the past almost-month I’ve been in Styleville, I’ve done a ton of shopping, and I have a whole mess of stuff. Honestly, where the heck do I even keep it all, and more importantly, how do I keep it straight? Answer: Hours spent organizing, and the fact that I turned my apartment’s dining room into a closet. I just wish the Buyer’s Center provided free hangers along with the things I purchase…After putting together an outfit to match my hair, I headed out. Then, you know, hit the store, hit the Buyer’s Center, all that good stuff. I popped by the park mid-day and ran into one of my customers, who was busy snapping some pictures—she got a great one of us!

Cute!

Cute!

 Later Daphne stopped by Lilac Breeze and asked for my opinion in picking out a new brand to come to Styleville’s Buyer’s Center. Of course, I was more than happy to help, and as a result, [] opened its doors today! [photos]
I also got a new assistant—her name’s Dierdee, and while she gets about as much done as Shea (aka nothing), it’s nice to have a fresh face around in the store. 

And, y'know, it's fun not having to check everyone out myself...

And, y’know, it’s fun not having to ring up everyone myself…

After hiring a new employee and working in the store all day, I was ready to do something fun for myself. Once it got dark out, I headed home, changed into an up-scale Zhade outfit, and hit the contest hall, where…wait for it…I swept the competition! Check out my photos…

…pretty sweet, huh? The after-party was fun, too, and the éclairs were absolutely to die for. I mean, they were just sitting out there, practically asking to be eaten…
