Oh my goodness!

Somebody pinch me!  I just came home to a darling letterpress invitation in the mail to a dinner party hosted by Kate Spade’s very own Deborah Lloyd.  Luckily it’s next week and I’ll already be in New York shooting projects with my Matchbook team.  As you can imagine I’m in a bit of a tizzy—what to wear?  What to say?  How not to faint? Any pointers for me, ladies?  What would you say/ask/wear to dine with this inspiring woman?!

    Donna — I’ll see what I can do ; ) It has little penguins with bow ties in a snow globe—I nearly died. And I don’t know that she’s ever seen my silly little blog, but maybe “her people” have?! Thank you for being excited for me. I’m so touched! xo

    Meg — Aww thanks Meg! I’m going to do some shopping this week. I’ll be call/text/email you!!

    So jealous!
    Chunky jewels and some leopard print are a requirement!

    P.S. I love how she paired a yellow and white striped dress paired with leopard heels in the first image. So chic.

    wow!!! you have had an extraordinary 2010 missy!!! i don’t think it all could have happened to a more kind, hard working and talented person! something tells me this is only the beginning for you… better put your seat belt on, and enjoy what’s in store! have a great trip to new york, and don’t fret about the outfit. i am sure with your taste, and all of the holiday glam, you’ll find the perfect ensemble!

    Congratulations!! What an amazing opportunity and dream date! I can’t imagine!

    If I were to ask her a question it wouldn’t be how she got her start or what inspires her, but if she has ever been afraid of failure, why, and what did she do to overcome it…

    Good luck! I can’t wait to read more of how this unfolds and changes your life and future ventures!

    You are one lucky girl! I’ve never made it to NYC and you’re on your way to dinner with Deborah Lloyd! Sigh. I have no idea what I would say at such an occasion. Something terribly awkward, I’m sure. :)
