When The Limited asked me and two other bloggers, Christine of The View from 5 ft 2 and Jess of Jess and Jill to be part of their golden anniversary event I was incredibly excited. When I found out I’d be walking down the runway with ‘real’ models…
[Jessica Voice Over]: I couldn't help but wonder...is this my Carrie Bradshaw moment?
[Flashback to SATC 2001]
Charlotte: What’s the difference between strutting down a runway and the way you strut down Fifth Avenue?
Carrie: Strut? Do I strut? Am I a strutter?
Carrie: I just… I cannot imagine walking down a runway where all the people sit there and judge me.
Charlotte: No one would judge you.
Carrie: We judge models all the time.
Miranda: But, you’re not a model you’re one of the real people.
Carrie: Exactly and I don’t want people to think that I can’t see the difference between a model and me.
[Back to 2013 reality]
After much consideration I said yes as I was incredibly honored to be asked. I just prayed I wouldn’t fall over and be fashion road kill like Carrie.
[Jessica V.O.]: The only question left to ask was “do I get to keep the clothes?”

The Limited's anniversary collection consisted of three key trends, military, equestrian and leather. Along with the models each trend had a guest blogger walking the runway in their own personal take of the look. I of course was given the Equestrian trend, [Jessica V.O.]: Was it cos of my British connections?
