Gabrielle and I took on the IZOD IndyCar race track and went from heels to wheels! Here’s our take:
Mine (Deanna) – After calling “Shotgun!” and jumping into the front seat of the Indy race car, I prayed that I wouldn’t regret that… However, I couldn’t stop laughing and screaming – I was having so much fun! Plus, having a front row seat made the race car ride even better! He was driving so fast that I couldn’t stay still!
OK, OK – I have to admit, there was a tad bit of fear which is why there was a slight escape of some un-ladylike words. Nonetheless, bad words and all, the experience was worth it because my red hot shoes and I were loving every second! We were so close to the wall that I could almost smell the paint. Next time…I’m getting behind the wheel!
Gabrielle – Whoever thought that cutting turns at 90mph could be such a thrill?! What an adrenaline rush! I was just as excited as I get when Nordstrom is having one of their shoe sales…as I am for a show for a Fashion Week Tampa Bay designer (like Ivanka Ska’s SEE Dali Sensory Overload)…or sniffing a cute guy who is wearing the IZOD fragrance. You get it, right? That’s pretty excited, wouldn’t you say?
For the record, I don’t recommend wearing stilettos in a race car…only a slight disappointment from a style stance, but I didn’t feel out-of-place. I felt proud that I was representing an entity (fashion) that really does go with everything. Perhaps fashion is not nearly recognized enough at let’s say – a race care sporting event – however, by the end of this week we plan to have all the Indy car drivers and fans open-minded to a stylish point of view!
