The Launch

Color-coordinated book cover and panties.

So, my book launch party was AMAZING. Tons of great people. Tons of great cookies. Tons of great clothes. (My three favorite things, natch! Saying "natch!" is my fourth favorite.) I had a wonderful time meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends and signing my friend Kyle's book as "The Beaver." (I think he meant Woodrow, but we'll never be sure.)

My boyfriend just informed me that I look like I'm doing the "bend and snap" from Legally Blonde in this picture, and who's to say I wasn't?

Sequins!

Signing a book for the lovely Lindsay!

So cute!

Thank you SO much to all who were able to attend, and to Mabel & Zora for providing the perfect venue. I kind of want to have a book launch party every week, although I'm not sure that's feasible.

Check out more great photos of the event at Streetwalker PDX!

p.s. I also wanted to encourage you all to enter the Closet Confidential giveaway over at the Handbag Heaven blog--they're giving away FIVE copies, so your chances of winning are reeaaalll good!

I should have flown to Portland. This will go down as an all time regret, along with never trying out for the Yankees and eating soup with a fork...

futurelint said...

Yay! Three of my favorite things - you, cobalt blue, hair do-dad!

Just read your book, it's awesome! You have rekindled my passion for fashion. After a long and sad phase of sweat pants and shrunken t-shirts(yes, I finally hit bottom) I set out and bought a fitted black blazer and a black cardigan sweater. And my new life begins...thanks Winona!

marifer D. said...

Congratulations! Now I'm off to figure out if Amazon can send your book to me! (I'm in Mexico :D)
