Carin Rodebjer has a Cinderella-from-the-street story. She was spotted wearing her own creations on the sidewalks of Manhattan and plucked from hand tailoring clothes in her Lower East Side Apartment to selling her stuff retail.

2:30 Decide to bag the 3 PM show due to time constraints.

2:47 Screw it! These things never start on time.

2:50 The cabbie did not take kindly to my “…and step on it!” routine.

3:25 Hot Swedish blonde says they have SO not started. I might have time to pee.

3:27 “A public bathroom? You don’t have access.” Such exclusivity!

3:40 It’s summer in the city at The American Ballroom. The ever-cool front row editors are waving their programs like it’s the latest calorie burning workout.

I still have to pee.

3:42 Cast member from The Clockwork Orange informs me that I may now take my seat. I now have a seat. Does that get me access to the bathroom too?

Rodebjer halter dress We found Rodebjer online and on sale at testimoboutique.com. The elegant tailoring of the halter dresses give the simple pieces such versatility that you can choose your shoe to change up the style and no one will know it’s the same dress.
