"Best Dressed" and First Runway Experience

Flashback Summer: Emileigh Rogers at 2018 417 Fashionation
I was very privileged to have won a local "Best Dressed" award in our local 417 Magazine.  As perks of being one of seven chosen, I was featured in the April issue of the magazine, and a full interview was included on the website.  Such an honor, and I was proud to represent vintage fashion! (Picture credit)

The other part of winning is that I participated in the annual Fashionation fashion show in town.  It's a pretty big event in my area, and a few hundred people usually attend.  The Best Dressed people walked the runway at the end, and I was second to last in the whole show.

I'll admit... It was a bit nerve-wracking.  As a pastor, I do a lot of public speaking, but I don't do a lot of public.... walking, haha!  My two goals were not to trip and to have fun, and I'm glad to say I accomplished those!

For those of you that haven't subscribed to Flashback Summer emails, I'll give you a heads up: my next email will include some more pictures, details, and four lessons I learned about modeling.  Hurry and subscribe to get the full scoop!
