Whine + Betsey Johnson excitement!

Sorry for the lack of OOTD yesterday and today. I came home Monday evening only to feel progressively sicker! I caught my husband's cold! I thought I'd stay home yesterday and do some writing and reading from bed, but after my phone meeting yesterday morning I felt so sick I just crawled in bed and slept most of the day. I even missed seeing my best friend back from her summer in Brazil! And, I missed a yelp elite event at Teatro Zinzanni (with food from Tom Douglas). I was so looking forward to that. I had this whole theatrical outfit planned out around my leisured zebra skirt from Anthro and this mask I made from wood veneers. :( c'est la vie I suppose.

On another note, I got a message from the Yelp community manager last night that I get to meet Betsey Johnson! Last week I got an email that read:

"World famous fashion designer, Betsey Johnson is making her first appearance in Seattle at her store for the first time in 23 years and we're invited!

Be a part of this super exclusive event. Pre-funk with mini manicures, nosh on light bites and sip mimosas! Betsey will be arriving at noon and will be greeting all VIP guests as well as taking some questions from her fans."

And last night I got an email saying I made the VIP list! Sweet!

I'm so excited! The event isn't for a few weeks, but I'm already wondering what the heck does a girl wear when meeting a world famous fashion designer?

Feel better! I am completely jealous that you will meet Betsey Johnson!!! It'll be amazing and I can't wait to hear all about it, as well as see what you wore (:

Wow, that's really awesome! Getting to meet Betsey Johnson that is, being sick is seriously not awesome. I hope you get to feeling better, and the theatrical outfit sounds like it would be have been really cool. And I agree, we have to hear all about Betsey Johnson and your outfit. (But I have no idea what would be good for meeting a famous designer, either). Sorry for the long comment! I hope you're having a great day! :)

Are you Yelp Elite? We should meet up sometime. I never go to the events because I don't know anyone, and I'm not good with groups of complete strangers. :) Congrats on getting a spot for the Betsey Johnson event! It sounds like it will be awesome.
