This weekend I had a girls weekend with Gracie. Bobby was up in Michigan with his cousins at a skate park. It was the perfect time for me and Gracie to do some girly things together.
Our weekend consisted of shopping at the mall, getting our hair done, getting our nails done, going out to lunch and dinner and holding our very own fashion show.
The fashion show was all Gracie’s idea. She wanted to make sure that all her new back to school clothes fit her, and coordinated with her new Angry Birds backpack.
The fashion show took place in our backyard and the runway was the new cement walkway that my husband laid out earlier in the summer. I was chosen to be the fashion show photographer.
Since this was Gracie’s fashion show she was calling the shots, and she decided that she wanted the dogs to walk the runway with her.
Fine by me.
So without further ado, here is Gracie’s Back to School Fashion Show featuring Gracie, Leroy, Sherman and even Plunger!
Here we have Gracie modeling a very cute dog dress from Old Navy paired with black patent flats. Leroy is modeling a lovely chocolate brown fur coat, that in the right light looks like brown velvet.
Leroy wasn’t very enthused about walking the runway. He is very easily distracted and it wasn’t long before Gracie lost control of the situation and chaos broke out on the runway.
Due to his uncooperative behavior Leroy was asked to exit the runway, and has since been banned from all future fashion shows at this establishment.
Sherman was then asked to step in and takeover the runway.
Here we have Gracie wearing a very adorable 2 piece lime green shirt with white tank top and sparkle jeans paired with black studded boots. Sherman is wearing a thick, Swiss chocolate, brown luxurious fur.
I have to draw attention to the black boots. The black boots were among 4 pair of shoes that Gracie got that day. What can I say? I found it very difficult to say no to her and these boots were to die for.
Since Sherman did such a fabulous job on the runway with his first appearance he was asked to walk the runway again.
This time we have Sherman sporting the same outfit as before since it was such a hit with the crowd. Gracie is wearing the cutest navy blue rain coat I have ever seen.
Then we had an unexpected model enter onto the runway.
Here we have Gracie modeling a black and navy plaid skirt and shirt and joining her is Plunger who is sporting a short, brown, white and black fur.
By this time we were already about 2 hours into a very long fashion show, but Gracie was really starting to work the runway.
So last up we Gracie taking a solo walk down the runway modeling a pink conservative dress accented with a brown and pink rhinestone puppy purse.
What can I say? Every girl needs to start the second grade with some sort of bling!
I’m going to spare you the other 150 photos I took of the fashion show. We had a few deleted scenes due to dog and wardrobe malfunctions, a few wipe outs, and one meltdown, right before Leroy was asked to leave the premises he slobbered on the new backpack.
