For some reason, I always look like an utter train wreck in my photos with her. She looks more radiant and younger than ever and I just look doughy and fat-faced as usual. What the hell?
You might be thinking, "Tracy, not everyone is going to be staring at you, geez."
Well, considering the way I dress compared to most middle-aged Mormon stay-at-home moms, I knew 1000% percent that I would be seen. I would be visible. I refuse to water myself and hide, and if I couldn't be my bold, risk-taking, flamboyant self at a freakin' fashion event centered around being true to our nature, where COULD I be myself?
Obviously I got my reluctant anti-social ass on that plane. Look at how elated I was. (My suitcase is on point though, right?!)
For Part 1, I am going to show you what I decided to wear for the event. First, I want to mention that I did do an outfit change during lunch and also for dinner, so there were multiple outfits each day! This was, after all, a fashion event, and I treated it like it. I told you, I KNEW I was going to be noticed, and Carol herself commended me on my fashion risks and being inspiring (and then I bluntly told her I just wanted a photo. Man I suck at talking or taking a compliment).
I am going to apologize that these photos are basically just photos of the photos from Style Book (the app I use for planning and tracking my outfits, I have a link in my side bar if you're interested in checking it out), but I did not take a bunch of outfit photos at the event. It was a whirlwind of activity and I was just trying to stay afloat!
