Namedropping


Part of Elizabeth's shoe collection.

Tonight Cath, Amelia and I got to put on our bartending hats for a fancy party for the Decatur Book Festival. How fancy, you ask? It was at a guy's penthouse. We'll call this guy Ted (coincidentally that happens to be his real name too). And I got to escort this guy to the door and up the elevator. Namedropping/linking aside, the highlight of the evening was not shaking famous hands or watching the Atlanta sunset disappear behind the CNN building- it was the shoes!

The beautiful Elizabeth Dewberry let us raid her closet: Prada shifts, Zac Posen suits, sexy Cavalli dresses.... and shoes! Christian Louboutins, Manolos (feathery and white), Chanel ballet flats... le sigh! It was pretty dreamy. Move over Rushdie and let me at the red soles.*

Here we are with Elizabeth in her Chanel suit. One day, Cath, one day....

*Literary types, please do not cringe. If J.D. Salinger had walked through the door I would've tossed the shoes off the balcony– or at least put them aside long enough to gawk at him.

You girls both looked great, even sans the Chanel suit!!

lisa said...

Literature and Chanel--sounds like my kind of shindig!

Alyssa said...

OMG! Rushdie!?! I think I just died of envy. There is not much I wouldn't do to brush shoulders with that man!
That is sooo cool.

LaMimi said...

Sounds like fun and she seems like a cool lady to hang out with and talk fashion :)

labelleetlaitgirl said...

I hate pointy toed shoes.. And clogs.. And yet I find myself pretty jealous

Sal said...

What a dreamy evening - even if you DID have to work! You both look smashing.

Fell4fashion said...

It looks like you had a lovely time! Such fun to see those fab shoes and clothes :)

Mare said...

So cool--shoes, books, authors! Sigh: the shoes, and gawd, I've wanted a Chanel suit for years!

What a great evening. And y'all are the best-dressed bartenders.

Did I mention the shoes?

Victory Bird said...

Wow, from Manolo to Ted, you get ultimate name drop privilege after that event!!! And of course, here at Emory, we're huge fans of our new professor Rushdie!!

greenjeans said...

Sounds like quite the night. Fancy shoes, fancy people. Can't ask for much more. Sometimes I forget people actually have closets like that...


ps.I think if Mr. Salinger had walked through the door my head would've exploded.

Dream Sequins said...

Love your blog! The shoes and the Chanel suit are interesting, but your personal style is far more compelling :)

Holy crap and a half, I'm so happy/seething with jealousy!! I once worked on a program for a charity auction to win Tea Time with Salman Rushdie. I couldn't go. Definitely couldn't afford him. Very sad.

Also, you girls look very beautiful. =) Elegant and proper.

Penelope said...

GAH; I LOVE, LOVE Manalos! And that suit is GORGEOUS!!!!!!

June Shin said...

You girls are moving up in this world. ;)

Terri said...

No offense, but screw the shoes! You ladies are so lucky to meet such literary figures! That'd be cool to be you for a day. ;-)

Cath looks positively in nirvana with those shoes! That made me laugh. I wish I could play in that closet too.

Shin said...

Gorgeous shoes! It looks like you guys had a magical evening! xxoxoxo

Katie said...

lucky girls! rushdie! i would die!

tanya said...

i'll take it. LOVE :-)

Alya said...

literature and fashion seems like a pretty lethal combination for me!

Liz Blair said...

I didn't know that you guys were bartenders! Is it fun? Do you talk to people about their problems? I always thought that people training to be counselors should work for a while as bartenders, like an internship or something.

If I worked in a bar, i would wear some really cool clothes.

what a collection!

TheSundayBest said...

Whoa whoa whoa whoa...you met Salman Rushdie?

(Incomprehensible babbling)

Ciambellina said...

Great blog!

Off-topic but can I ask -- where were you guys when this picture was taken? Not even sure it's Atlanta, but it looks like it might be near Centennial Olympic Park.
