#SWFW 2014

I was so excited to when I got casted to walk in South Walton Fashion Week 2014 again this year! When I auditioned, I got to hear “You have improved so much this year compared to last” and my heart soared! How exciting!

I went to the practices. I was coached by Heather Forrester, and didn’t receive a lot of critique to my walk. I was feeling good.

Then the Wednesday Night practice a couple days before, I got to walk the runway with America’s Next Top Model Cycle 19 winner Laura James… everything was beginning to get more real!

Then Thursday I got the phone call. “Hello Ashlee. The designer pulled a lot of the line, and so we won’t actually be needing you this show.”

It was the only show I was going to walk in, and now they did not need me. … I was crushed. I actually started crying during the middle of my lunch break, in public, with my friend. Everyone tried to console me, and I did quickly suck up my tears and moved on. If it wasn’t meant to be, it wasn’t meant to be.

Though it didn’t hurt any less.

Then I got the phone call Friday at work – “Ashlee, think you could fill in for a model tonight?”
“Um, Yes!!”

And that was that! I got to walk in the Friday night show. That was exciting enough.

It wasn’t until Saturday that I got the phone call saying a Designer needed a model, could I go try on the outfit, that I realized Woah! I am going to get to walk in TWO shows this year, TWO days in a row! Wow!


I even got to meet America’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 winner, and judge of SWFW 2014 show: Yoanna House! How awesome!

God is good!

Monster Bash!

“Being beautiful is boring.”

I had the pleasure of being made into a terrifying Monster during a local special effects class. This was an eight hour process.

A lot of respect to the regular monster-ees who sit in chairs on set on a daily basis for movies to become the villain.
