So Chic, indeed...

What better reason for two bloggers to get together, then being in the same room as Margaret Russell (Editor in Chief of Elle Decor magazine)...and so we did!!! We being, Katie and I, at the Ann Sacks showroom in SF.

(Below, that's me on the left, with my cheese eating grin, and blogger (Katie'did') next to me, looking no less than chic herself...)


With a crowded showroom, Katie and I chatted away, sipping wine and sitting on the edge of a showroom tub. Our conversation pretty much went: blogs, bloggers, Margaret, blogs, what's with that gold crushed velvet wardrobe malfunction over there, and how do we know when we spot possible other bloggers...


All with the So Chic book in hand, which consists of a great collection of Elle Decor's more recent fab interiors, you can find this book on Amazon here...but those aren't signed :)



Now on to Margaret, whom I almost accosted had my trunk not been filled with carpet books and swatches...a real doll in person and a delight to speak with; talking blogs and the importance of crediting the photographers (which I must admit I don't do enough of) she was so intrigued by what "we bloggers" do. Wait, shouldn't be the other way around, we're at your book signing I thought!! Needless to say, Margaret was so great to chat with and uber chic!! Overall, I'd say this was a successful blogger meet up...

And now I'm off to San Antonio, TX...wish I could meet up with blogger Joni in Houston, but that's not the case on this business packed trip! See you when I return!!!

I LOVE IT! You girls are beautiful... Margaret is as gorgeous as I suspected... what fun! Gorgeous tile, cocktails, a new design book, good blogging friends, design talk - what more could a girl want? Wish I had been there!!

bandelle said...

Oh, how fun! I'm fairly new to the blogging community but I've had so much fun so far getting to "know" people. I'll have to check out Katie's blog, too! And I've just added you to my blogroll :) Is Margaret Russell's book worth purchasing? Her comments were hilarious on Top Design. I wonder if Bravo will bring back the show.

Alkemie said...

*sigh* I was telling Katie how down I was about not having the chance to meet the both of you. At least I know what both of you look like! I was there and looking around but was to embarrassed to ask every other person in the room if they were you or Katie. Anyways the event was fantastic. I really like the photo of the 3 of you.

flow said...

oh how fun! Karen from blog Alkemie was there as well :)

oh I love it! what a great fete for you two have attended! I love meeting other bloggers, even if it's just by phone. It certainly adds a level of depth and caring to the relationships we've built.

But let's get on the the fabulous Mrs. Russell. It seems she was even more chic in person, if possible! She looks adorable!

Too funny.
