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…



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…


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

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

Dinner and a Movie


While I was beating around the store today, Harris—remember, the owner of the furniture store?—popped in and asked me to find him a luxury top.  While I was ringing him up, he mentioned going to dinner at the fancy French restaurant above the hotel and told me I should join him before taking his purchase and heading out. Of course, I couldn’t pass up a chance to wear luxury clothes, so I closed up shop in the late afternoon, got ready, and made my way over to the hotel. Dinner was delicious, of course—what else would you expect from this restaurant?—and the dessert was absolutely the crown jewel, with a bunch of strawberries and pillows of whipped cream and this really spongy, fluffy cake.

Plus, I got to dress up a little.

It was lovely, albeit a little bit awkward—after all, Harris is more Michaela’s friend and I don’t know him that well, but it was still nice to chat. And really, who would turn down such a nice dinner?
