Happy Monday folks! I hope you lovelies on the East Coast are staying dry. I’m currently stuck in the dirty South (shoutout to Atlanta, love it here!) until further notice. My flight back to New York was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy so I’m marinating in Southern hospitality for a few more days until the chaos dies down.
So here’s what my crazy week was like:
Narciso Rodriguez x Kohls Collaboration: Last Monday, I had the pleasure of attending the launch party for the Kohls x Narciso Rodriguez DesignNation collection launching this November 7th. On middle right is a picture of some of the color-block dresses in the collection. I spotted celebs like Emma Roberts and Katie Holmes (top middle). They also gifted guests with a few pieces from the collection - I cannot wait to wear some of my pieces out on the town!
Oh Hey Katie Couric: Don't ask me how but Sweet Baby Jesus put my blog's name in the hands of the producers of Katie Couric's new talk show "Katie", and I was honored to be her special blogger guest this past Wednesday! Full post on that experience coming soon, but (top right) see a picture I snapped front row at her live studio recording. They select one blogger each day to participate in live-tweeting the show and last week they chose me! I was beyond honored. Check out my post for the Katie Show website here. It was all about Will.i.am who was Katie's special guest that day.
ATL Shawty: Like I mentioned earlier I'm currently in the beautiful city of Atlanta, GA. This was only supposed to be a weekend trip but due to everyone's favorite gal (Hurricane Sandy), I'm still here. I flew down here with my girl Jessica of Glamazons Blog and we happened to meet up with Blake of BlakeVonD while here. This weekend was Spelman/Morehouse Homecoming (and my first time going to an HBCU homecoming celebration) and it was beyond fun. Atlanta is a charming city. Huge hugs to Lexi of LexiWithTheCurls who I had a chance to brunch it up & go shopping with on Sunday. She's the bomb. I can't wait to come back!
So how are you guys holding up? Have a good weekend? Ready for Hurricane Sandy (East Coasters)?
