Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

Strut Is Right Around The Corner #StrutMoms

It’s been a…crazy ride to say the least – but Strut is finally here! We are literally days away from The Fashionable Mom Show and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m so proud to be wearing Marshalls. Because I am a co-founder, I have 3 looks in the show. Two looks are walking and one is for the finale where we sort of pop our heads out, wave and then go backstage to close the show.


I’m a little scared of falling if I’m being honest. I went into the city last week for my fitting and tried on the outfits. They are SO AMAZING. The shoes are hot… but HIGH. I was dry heaving in the fitting room just thinking about it!




It is not a freaking option. But the runway is HUGE. It’s a U shape so everyone is guaranteed a good seat. This als means all eyes will be on me for the entire length of the walk. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

If there is one thing that the Strut Show proves, it’s that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. I mean, who would have thought that I would be part of a group that founded a NY FASHION SHOW. We just… created it. It wasn’t there and now it is. That’s just insane to me. This is my biggest professional accomplishment to date. It’s almost hard to process.

This show will continue on with fashion week – forever. Can you imagine?

Today we are stuffing the bags. Thank goodness some help is on the way!!! I’m just waiting for Thursday to come – this is what we’ve all worked so hard for…

and seriously  I better not fall.
