First of all, I was so nervous I was shaking in my new Pour la Victoire's! Seriously. I was nervous because I really didn't know what to expect. How many people would be there...would I actually get to meet her in person...what will she be like...AND Did I pick the right outfit for this shindig??? Good grief! So many thoughts going through my head!
But upon meeting up with fellow Bay Area Blogger Flor of Flor de Maria Fashion, my mind was put to ease. We instantly chatted about the gorgeous & breath-taking pieces from Herrera's Fall 2011 collection, our excitement to meet the iconic designer and well, our outfits, naturally!
And then Carolina Herrera arrived looking magnanimous and regal as she walked through Neiman's, coming within inches of us! Sensational to say the least. Her outfit was impeccable. She was flawless. And she was so gracious to pose with me for a couple photos.
Now, if only I could have been as flawless as Ms. Herrera...upon asking her to sign a copy of her look book for me, I had a, ahem, "moment of insanity" and completely forgot my name! I mean she asked me my name and I said, Vanessa....the problem was she then asked me if I spelled it with 2 s's and what do you know...I gave her the blankest look you've ever seen. Unbelievable how these things happen to me. Thankfully, she just had a damn good laugh! Pheew! The way I look at it is if I at least made her smile, then all was good!
