MY FIRST RUNWAY FASHION SHOW!!!!!

Buenos Aires Fashion Week culminated tonight and I got to attend my first-ever fashion show!!!!!!!! I was so stoked to go to the exhibition center where designers were showing at booths and beautiful people were out in force, but the tickets to the runway shows were sold out.
GOOD THING I had the Mother Lode camera hanging around my neck -- I don't usually do stuff like this -- but I saw the loooonnngggg line of ticketholders going into the Wanama runway show,
and I bypassed to the head of the line and asked the security guy (in Spanish, nonetheless) how much tickets were. I DID NOT say I was with the press, but he looked at my camera and said (in Spanish), "For the press, it's free." So I was like, "hmmm," and said I had friends with me -- he asked how many, I said "two," and I motioned Neil and our friend Venai over, and he let us all in!! BOO-YAH!!!!! We were sooo incredibly psyched to be there (of course I was thrilled, but yes, my two dude companions were, too). My heart is pounding remembering it. It was so awesome.
Wanama, anyone? I'd never heard of the line, but I LOVED it!!!!! I've always wanted to go to a runway show!!!!

I took all the pictures you see here. Special thanks to the bomb camera and whatever it might lead security guards to assume about my profession.
Our friend, Venai

you are amazing. I love when things like that happen. Buenos Aires seems like the New York of South America but so much better.

p.s. I've heard it referred to as the Paris and the New York of South America......Paris makes more sense....it looks wonderful there.

Rachel, you should come visit! You would love it. The city is full of artistic, creative people. All of you ladies, Tara, Mel, for that matter would love it for that reason!!! I would say it more lives up to the name the Paris of South America. It has a lot more of a romantic and European feel to it in my opinion. But I have spent limited time in all three cities, so what do I know?

Thanks, Ali. Your other comment about disregarding everything you said about Argentina was funny, because I have been a little perplexed and thought to myself, "I thought she said they don't even have couches here ...?" lol But yeah, I haven't seen the villas.

Rosemay, we miss you too!!!! Why did we all have to move? :( I thought you might return before we moved. You guys should totally come visit!

Thanks, MJ, the offer extends to everyone -- come visit! Or buy a house ... you know, priorities ;)

Thanks, Zoe! It was a lot of fun.
