Somebody that I Used to Know

Tonight I got to attend a benefit fashion show for Baylor Hospital Health Care System Foundation with celebrity host/stylist and Denim Magazine editor & chief, J. Bolin.   I met J. Bolin years ago and he gave me one of my most memorable fashion moment.  I was just starting in the industry and modeling in a fashion show. He was back stage styling for a designer and I just remember the polish on his personal presentation.   It was impeccable, complete with clean lines, perfect tailoring, and a crispness you have to see to believe.  He inspired me to be as polished as possible and to finish a look from head to toe.

Tonight's event had a station to sign up to be an organ donor.  I have a really close friend who had a kidney transplant and through her I understand the urgency of having a replacement organ.  Tonight, I signed up to be an organ donor in hopes of helping someone live when I go meet Jesus.  Click here if you want more information or would like to sign up.
