Flagstaff goes High Style with Strut!

Strut! is a fashion runway show that showcases fun and funky fashions from local boutiques, independent designers and outdoor retailers here in my hometown. And it true Flagstaff spirit, it's also a fundraiser for the Northern Arizona Food Bank. I got to hang out with the ladies from Shoes-n-Such boutique as they prepared for the show. It was a lot of fun and completely overwhelming to see how many people showed up for a great cause. Also, after seeing just how beautiful these ladies look, I totally predict that the Shoes-n-Such store just might be swarming with some available men shopping for "shoes for their sister" Ha! Here's a few images from the day:

Shoes-n-Such manager, Kristen Faxlanger, gets some high fashion makeup from Studio 8 Salon's masterful Pat (Studio 8 is located on 8 W. Route 66 in Flagstaff. You can reach them at 928-774-9432):

And hair was by the fabulously talented Sean at the same salon:

And the final look for the models....MEOW!!
Katelyn Redding dons some high fashion feathers for her final look.

Extra teal makeup was applied closer to the show for contrast with the feathers:

Allie St. Amand had some gorgeous big hair with feathers!


The beautiful Jackie Banks:


And finally my gorgeous friend Kristen Faxlanger!

Love the hair!

Here the ladies are before they went on stage in the greenroom:

And here they are on stage! Bravo!
