BIG NEWS: I’m a Karlie Kloss Runway Show Contest Winner!

I have been dying to tell you guys something… I am thrilled to announce that I am one of the winners in the Express x Karlie Kloss runway show contest! What does that mean? Next week, I’ll be walking in a fashion show at The Pageant with Express and Karlie Kloss to debut her new collection with the brand. Eeeeekkkk!

I mean, did you see the store’s latest campaign where Karlie handed out invites to what you must assume is the most chic party ever?


(Kidding, very big deal.)

Also walking the runway is my friend and fellow St. Louis fashion blogger, Elena, plus eight other amazing women. See the full lineup on the Express blog, The Edit.

The winning experience has been frankly surreal. I’m eternally grateful I work with such laid back individuals at my day job, because I found out while at a work lunch and went mildly insane with joy-induced excitement. You guys know I love Express (my favorite moto jacket of all time, seen above, is from there… and currently is on sale!), and Karlie is an inspiration both in her professional success and philanthropic efforts. What an honor to be selected to participate!

Next week, myself and a guest — my forever shopping partner, my mom Susan! — will be staying in luxurious hotel downtown midweek to get everything ready for Thursday’s show. The show will even be streamed live on the Express website. Send all your good vibes this way, fashionistas; this blogger is getting bumped to the big leagues for a day!

Be sure to follow along on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat (@ohjuliaann on all platforms) to see all of my #Karlie4Express experience. Can’t wait to show you more!

    Hey, I have looked everywhere to see if the fashion show is even open to the public and can’t fined anything. Can tell me if it is or not and if so where it would be taking place? THX and congratulations!
