Greg Huff and I were asked to represent Einstein Simplified in a fashion show on Saturday night at Club LeConte. The show was organized by the Women’s Council of Realtors as a benefit for the Volunteer Ministry Center. Many of the models were realtors. There were a few local politicians strutting their stuff too.
I wore three outfits from Jos. A. Bank. My favorite was an orange blazer that got applause from the Vols fans in attendance. Catholic blogger Frank Weathers commented on a Facebook photo of me wearing the blazer. He wrote, “Orange is so wrong on you Frank! ; )” I had to laugh because I know that orange is to Irish Protestants as green is to Irish Catholics. Two of the other models, former Lady Vol Daedra Charles-Furlow and former Vols quarterback Sterling Henton said they loved the blazer.
Whitney Kent and Jamie Lynn Drohan were models, as was Ella Nolan from “The Bachelor.” Although I met Ella last year when she was on “Star 102.1’s Dancing with the Knoxville Stars,” it took me a moment to recognize her voluptuous new look.
