We had a blast!

Dette indlæg har jeg ventet længe på at skrive, og jeg har glædet mig til at vise jer et af de bedste køb på turen: min finalekjole! Lørdag aften var der Retailer/Boutique's Showcase, og jeg kunne ikke vente med at hoppe i kjolen, som jeg allerede havde købt på den første dag i New York. Sikke en succes! Jeg fik så mange komplimenter for den, flere tog billeder og lavede video af den (og mig) - og jeg kan også se på billederne, at jeg nærmest stråler. Jeg havde det SÅ godt i den, den var vildt behagelig og jeg følte mig meget smuk. Jeg havde ellers aldrig troet, at sådan en type kjole ville sidde pænt på- og klæde mig, men da jeg faldt over den i Macy's, og hoppede i den for sjov, var jeg solgt. Jeg ville gerne have haft sorte stiletter på, men da jeg desværre ingen havde med og ej heller var faldet over et par, måtte jeg nøjes med mine nude wedges. Det gik også ok, men sorte havde lige været prikken over i'et. Vi havde en helt igennem dejlig aften. Showet var fint, men det var middag og bytur med de skønne damer bagefter, som virkelig gjorde det til en uforglemmelig aften. Jeg kan slet ikke vente til næste år, hvor vi skal samles igen!

I've been dying to write this post and to show you one of my best purchases in New York: my dress for the finale! Saturday night was the Retailer/Boutique's Showcase, and I couldn't wait to put the dress on, since I'd bought it on my first day in the city. What a success! I received so many compliments, several people took photos and made videos of the dress (and me) - and I can tell by the pictures that I had a sort of glow that night. I felt so comfortable and beautiful in it, and I never even thought a dress like that would look good on me. But when I saw it at Macy's I had to try it on, and who would have known that it was love at first sight! I would have liked to have worn black heels with it, but since I hadn't brought any and not found a pair over there, I had to settle for my nude wedges. It worked out okay, but black ones had made it that little bit more perfect. We had a great night - the show was fine, but what really made it memorable was dinner and drinks with the lovely girls afterwards. I really can't wait for our reunion next year!
