100 Years of Fashion

Well, the big day has come and gone.

I made my big debut as a fashion model last Saturday, in the 100 Years of Women's Fashion show, organized by the Museo Etnográfico Reino de Pamplona, and it was a blast! Okay, so none of us are professional models, and we don't know how to walk like Claudia Schiffer, but every one of us did a great job.  And the audience loved us!

Words can't really explain the excitement, the nerves, and the amazing performance put on by this fantastic group of volunteers, so I'll just leave you with a few photos, and you can see for yourselves. Catgirl took the photos, and she did an excellent job...it looks like we have a budding photographer in the family. Now, if I could just convince her that she doesn't know everything, and that she should take a photography class, who knows what she could do...

Hairdressers working like crazy to finish before showtime.

Now I know what real models must feel like.

Behind the scenes.

These two were brilliant....they danced the Can-can all the way down the catwalk.
All dressed up and ready to go.

This is one of the girls I go to step class with...good thing she doesn't have to wear this every day!

Some like it hot!  I think these two are my favorites, they really got into their roles.
A real live pin-up girl.

Far out!  All the 70s girls together....I'm having flashbacks from my childhood!

Almost all of us.

This girl was amazing...she's only fourteen, but she held up like a pro.

You gotta love that attitude!
OMG, I can't believe there are that many people out there...smile, just keep smiling...

Am I really doing this?  Whew, almost done...but wait, people are aplauding, this is actually pretty fun.

So you've had a little taste of our show. There are, of course, a lot more pictures, but it would be impossible to include them all here. If you'd like to see more of these amazing outfits, most of which are real museum pieces, you can check them out on our Facebook page. I'd highly recommend it, because some of them are spectacular.

And that's it for now.  Too bad it's over, but I, for one, hope we get to do it again really soon...and maybe next time you'll come and see us live.


  1. You look INSANELY AMAZING. Wear outfit, everyday, all the time. Except when you're exercising.

    Everyone looks great--and the outfits, across the board, were fabulous.

    Too fun.

  2. What fun! I love the fashions, too.


  3. Ayyy pero si yo vi el post a través del Reader, e incluso pensé, se parece a Theresa, estoy tan ida, y luego he visto las fotos en Facebook y me dije, es que era Theresa !!!

    Mola un montón, y me alegro que lo pasaras tan bien.

    En cuanto a mi blog, he deshabilitado los comentarios. Y las fotos son mías, jajaja.

  4. Looks amazing! It's funny to see some of those styles next to each other when they were decades apart- so incongruous! Must have been heaps of fun :)

  5. Looks like fun. So since you are a super model now, will you be in the next issue of Vogue?

  6. Fantastic! Educational and fun too. Spanish women are incredible with a needle and you look great!

  7. that looks like it was a fun event. quite a lot of changes in those hundred years eh?

  8. Jocelyn: Thanks, you are a real doll! The outfit's not mine, so I couldn't wear it again, even if I wanted to. I usually don't wear skirts, but maybe I should...

    Sue: Oh, it was really fun. :)

    Giozi: Sí, soy yo, y me lo pasé genial. Pena que hayas desactivado los comentarios, así no podemos decirte lo bonitas que son tus fotos...y tu espera y ya verás como tu hija al final se hace una gran fotógrafa, como su mami. :)

    Ben: Yeah, I think that was the best part, the mix of old and even older styles...

    Asha: Not unless they pay me heaps of cash. ;)

    Mo: They really are, aren't they? Some of the outfits are partially original, but bits were missing, so they had to reconstruct them, and you can't tell the difference between the old and the new parts...it's really amazing.

    Lime: It was, and am I ever glad that fashion has changed in the last hundred years...I can't imagine having to walk around with a corset and all those layers of skirts. :D

  9. That looked like a fun and amazing event!
