The Show We've All Been Waiting For!

     Perhaps the most exciting fashion show of the year is over a month after all the Fashion Week buzz. After weeks of action from the runways to the pages of Vogue, this month begins a lull until the new season begins. But while designers are working on their next collections, journalists are moving on from articles about spring trends, and is covering more parties and celebs since there are no more runways to review, there is still one more show that emerges with a bang this time of year. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show!

     The first Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was in 1995, featuring high-waisted underwear, satin robes and slips, a kimono dress, and Mr. 90s Hair Camera Man in the background (The Huffington Post). But you don't have to take my word for it...

     Boy has the show come a long way since then! Now, every year brings new angels, bigger wings, creatively themed lingerie, legendary performers, a 2-3 million dollar "Fantasy Bra," and a star-studded audience all to one increasingly glittery runway! 

     This year, the preliminary sketches were out a month in advance
 to get the hype started (photos from Fashionologie).

My favorite VS Angel, Chanel Iman, shared a photo diary of her runway
experience this year with Vogue...

Just before what she dubbed her "magical moment."

     For the past couple years, my older sister and I have had an annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show party. We wear head-to-toe VS outfits (complete with pink, sparkly VS santa hats), bake lingerie inspired cookies, mix up cocktails consisting of ginger-ale and a pink colored juice of our choice, and eat only desserts that are pink, red, or white. It isn't until after we've set all our refreshments on the coffee table, taken a photoshoot of our angel-worthy outfits, and frosted our cookies that we finally sit down to watch the show. We normally record it so we have plenty of time for our pre-show rituals and can plan our party on a night that works for both of us. This year she'll be coming up to visit from Virginia for Christmas, so we'll have to wait until the middle of December. Here are some pictures of past year's soirees...



     The show will be airing on Tuesday, November 30th on CBS but until then, enjoy this sneak peek of what's to come...

Back to Blogging!

     For the past couple weeks, I haven't gotten many chances to post so I apologize for the lack of content. As usual, drama rehearsals put quite a damper on my blogging time in addition to the typical homework load. Last weekend was our performance so now I won't be as busy for a while. This Thanksgiving weekend has been nice to hang out with my family and relax and I hope you all have had a lovely holiday as well. Tomorrow I will be posting my weekly "Who Belongs to These Shoes" post that has been overdue for a week now and with a hopefully less hectic schedule this Christmas season, I'd like to go back to posting at least a few times a week. I appreciate the readers who visit my blog regularly--I may not have many, but it makes my day when I see the same people coming back.
