Luca Over Here.

Today I somewhat unexpectedly ended up at a fabulous Susan G. Komen benefit luncheon hosted by Beautique, complete with a Luca Luca fashion show. (A big thanks for the fun, Katherine. And seriously, are you completely drooling, Super Zoe?)

I’ve got to admit, my job does have its perks.

Let’s just say it was very elaborate and extremely cool. We sat three tables over from this hottie. Two tables from Chloe the Great! And a few tables over from some random people who’ve been on other lesser fantastic reality shows. They don’t get links.

But the swag! Oh my got* the swag! A giant takeaway gift bag chock full of every grande Bumble and Bumble product on the planet. Tons and I mean tons of other girly fun products. And. A $200 Luca Luca gift certificate. Which I’ve determined, after seeing the beautiful 2007 Spring/Summer Line catwalked, might buy me one sock. Maybe. But I’m hoping I can score one of the line’s signature kick arse circle necklaces. We’ll see.

Overall an aesthetically pleasing afternoon.

And seriously, do you guys think that models actually eat anything other than ice cubes?

*“Oh My Got!” is a fantastic phrase, coined by my homegirl Hailey. She’s two. And she’s brilliant. I currently try to use this phrase whenever possible.

    I bet they take laxatives too to "control" their weight and shape. Just a guess.

    I love the dress in the picture…. I wish I had the upper body for that!!Every job needs perks. If those perks include B&B products and gift certificates…all the better.

  3. Rhonda says:

    Lucky you! I saw the posters up in Beautique when I was getting my hair cut…I am totally envious.

  4. Lady M says:

    Wow, someday I want to attend a real fashion show too. And maybe get a goody bag? That Harry Potter costume is perfect. You don't have to worry about the babies chewing on makeup.

  5. Kristen says:

    Wow, what a cool experience! If I have to eliminate everything but ice cubes to be in shape, though, I think I'm going to die.

  6. Jenny says:

    Oh. My. Got.(Hee!)I'm so jealous. Did you talk to Chloe? Did she remember you?

  7. Nat says:

    Of course we eat more than ice cubes! We also eat huge bowls of fresh air (yummy and with lots of antioxidants!).Oh, wait, sorry, I was forgetting I am not a runway model and am in fact a heifer who eats whatever the hell is put in front of her.Make that a jealous heifer. I want to go to a fashion show. I should so move to Houston. All you cool beeyatches are making me want to visit!

    Jenny, I totally did. And she totally did. She rules. Nat, You crack me up. And yes, all the cool kids live in Htown. Seriously. But. We like to keep it hush hush. And let people THINK other cities are cooler. But no. Really. They aren't. We rule. But let's just keep this between us. We don't want the word to get out… then everyone will want to move here, and house prices will go up. Parking will be a problem. Etc.

    I am cracking up at Nat's comment.Hee!

  10. Super Zoe says:

    Yes, I am so jealous! I was in Vegas, shopping, so I will live. Sigh. It sounds abso glorious!!I am very impressed of your use of the word "catwalked", GcQ!

  11. Design Mom says:

    And aren't you the product queen? Could they have given you better swag?

  12. mothergoosemouse says:

    I am hyperventilating at the thought of the contents of the swag bag. Holy crap.I'm not certain, but I bet models don't eat guacamole. Especially in the quantities that I've been eating it lately. Scratch that off the "second career" list.
