Vintage Style Show at the Ohio Valley River Museum

Back in December I did a style show at the Puskarich Public Library. After the show I was approached about doing a style show at the Ohio Valley River Museum in Clarington Ohio on April 23rd for their Ladies Day at the Museum. After much debate with my husband, I decided to do the show. So off I went looking for models again. Charlie and Brandi graciously agreed right away and I asked Sarah and Abby if they were interested it was a quick resounding yes.

The Ohio Valley River Museum features exhibits on Ohio River riverboats, locks and dams exhibits, and more.

The morning of the style show started out a little over cast but beautiful. Since the ride down was over an hour we (models, my 2 girls and I) either carpooled or met at the museum. For this particular show I was asked to keep my speech part short since there were vendors
