Tish Jett was in the Bay Area yesterday for a book signing event. I adored her book, Forever Chic, Frenchwomen’s Secrets for Timeless Beauty, Style and Substance! My copy is highlighted all over the place! If you haven’t read it, you need to!
I drove down with Elizabeth of The Vintage Contessa, who warned me she may wear one of her tiaras. Whoa! knock it up another notch!
Prior to the signing we met Kim of Northern California Style, for a reunion lunch.
I couldn’t decide how I wanted to look. What I wanted my clothes to say about me. How I wanted to be seen, at this event.
I tried on tons of options. And in the end what I wore surprised even me!
I notched all my dramatic, edgy options, way down to my comfort zone. I ended up in classic clothes with classic accessories.
Notice how the touches of nude, track from my shoes, to the touch in my bag and print in my scarf, which draws the eye to my face and similar hair color.
I wore a black, v-neck sweater and my black Eileen Fisher pants. I accessorized with my vintage Kate Spade bag and vintage Hermes scarf.
When I say vintage, I mean I bought them new and have owned them forever! They became vintage along with me:)
Here’s Kim and Elizabeth getting their books signed.
Tish is a hoot and we connected immediately! If you don’t follow all these ladies, you need to!! My only regret is I couldn’t spend more time with these amazing bloggers. Blogger meet ups are the very best!
