korto & me

Guess what I did tonight??

I went to a runway show of Korto's new line for Dillards!!! Woohoo!! This was the most fun I've had in ages! This is Lu, me and my friend Lisa, all wiggly with excitement before the show:


And these are the emcee's shoes..which were so spectacular, I knew I better bring proof for you:


And then the fun began!!! I've never been to a "real" runway show, and this is probably as close as I'll ever get. It was SO much fun to see Korto's stuff come down the runway, with the cool tribal music bumping and flashes going off... But you just want to see the clothes, right?

So here ya go!



(ahem. He's carrying her jewelry line.
You know, in case you missed it.)









So after all the amazing clothes, they all came out and did the final runway walk...and she trailed them at the end! Just like the real thing!


And seriously? How gorgeous is she??


And sassy too!


So then we waited around to get our picture with her. Of course I fangirl-ed all over her and she was the sweetest thing! And that's how Korto & I became BFFs.

  15. So cool-- I really liked Korto's style and was sorry when she got auf'ed that season. And I love that she chose models with real figures instead of those size 0s!

    This was at Univ of Arkansas, wasn't it? I tried to get my son, who is a freshman, to go just to get a pic with her for me and to tell her what a fan I was. He wouldn't do it though. :( I told him that it would make a great date and that his date would think he was so sweet to be doing it for his mom! Oh, well....we'll just see if he gets his allowance this month. haha
    I'm so glad to see pics of it though! Thanks for sharing.
