Compassion From Fashion + my definition of a "celebrity fashion model"

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Awhile back I foolishly agreed to be a "celebrity fashion model" for a very awesome and worthwhile event called Compassion From Fashion.

Me, a fashion model? And celebrity fashion model at that? P-sha.

I blame my dear friend Maureen Kyle who is a legitimate Cleveland celebrity/WKYC television personality for making me believe I could actually walk the catwalk at Compassion From Fashion with her and the other celebrity models including TWO Cosmopolitan Magazine hottest bachelors on Saturday, November 19th.

Additionally, if we look purely on "celebrity" model status in Cleveland, Maureen has been on the cover of the Cleveland Magazine City List issue in 2010 which equals true celebrity status. I've just had my name on the cover of Cleveland Magazine City List issue this past year which equals a cute-ish blogger (aka face for the internet) version of celebrity status.

But I digress.
I recently came to my senses and decided against acting out my best Carrie Bradshaw impersonation on the catwalk and decided to just attend the event as a guest and talk about it here on the plum. Same thing, right?

The details:

What: The 3rd annual Compassion From Fashion event to benefit The Gathering Place, a community based cancer support center
Saturday, November 19th at 4pm for shopping, 6pm for food + cash bar and 7pm for the fashion show
Beachwood Place

How: Purchase your $20 ticket online here, your $25 ticket at the door the night of the event or win a pair of tickets here on the plum! (all proceeds from the tickets go straight to The Gathering Place)
