That Time I Wore Alpaca

I need to work on my model smile, apparently.

On my way up to the set of KDVR’s Good Day Colorado this morning, I was asked by a Colorado’s Best guest to help model her designer alpaca clothing.

Um…sure?

While I had back-to-school bargains on the mind, I thought it might be fun to do a little twirling in a material with which I have zero experience.

You can view my segment with Good Day here, where I discuss stocking up on loss-leader supplies, comparing prices, requesting price-matches (especially from Staples, who is currently offer a 110% price-match guarantee), and buying gently-used clothing and electronics. With school supplies increasing in price, it’s important to save as much money as you can!

Now, back to the alpaca threads. Northern Colorado dwellers can attend the second-annual Suri Strut Fashion Show at Embassy Suites in Loveland, Colo., starting tonight at 5:30pm. Admission is just $5 plus you can get autographs from this gorgeous Colorado celebrity. Interwebs, meet Cody the Alpaca!

I could never pull off those booties. You go girl!

Isn’t she fabulous? Apparently she is one of the smallest surviving alpaca babies, weighing in at just 6.5 pounds when she was born (compared to the average alpaca birth size of 15 to 20 pounds). She was very weak and very sick, but a dedicated ranch owner nursed her to health and eventual fame – she’s now a children’s book author! You can read more about Cody here.

Aaaaand that’s a wrap. I never imagined sharing the green room with an alpaca, but I’m pleased to have met Cody and hope the fashion show goes well tonight!
