The BlogHer Fashion Show: Empowerment In Heels


Last year, I wasn’t able to make it. I have no idea what I was doing while my friends and colleagues were strutting their stuff on the BlogHer ’12 Fashion Show Runway, but I wasn’t there supporting them. Afterwards I was both embarrassed and jealous as I listened to the rave reviews of the thing.

So this year, there was no way I was missing it again. Especially not with my friend and eternal conference roomie [Babble Voices own] Katherine Stone slated to strut with the best of ’em. Even still, I had no idea what I was in for. I mean, I screamed so loud my ears were ringing by the time I left. And when I did I felt high and inspired and I guess the ladies on the runway were so hot it heated up the rest of us, their confidence was contagious and I strutted out of the ballroom feeling pretty damn hot myself.

What was incredible about watching my friends, colleagues, and strangers I’ve only read about on the internet get their fierce on in front of a screaming crowd was how damn beautiful they all were. They radiated and rocked it, and I was almost choked up on a couple of occasions. Because watching women you’ve seen at their most vulnerable own their sexiness is freaking emotional. I’ve known them as entrepreneurs and philanthropists, authors and lecturers, and now I’ve known them as mother cussing super models.

Attitude is everything. (Okay fine, the fact that they’re all gorgeous helps. But it was about so much more than that.)

Thanks for the inspiration, ladies.
