Her name is Kelly Wearstler.

...and she is a tiny peanut! Not to mention lovely, genuine, and so friendly. How do I know?

Because last night, Danielle and I took a wee lil' break from our computer screens and tagged along with our friend Kat to a private event at the Neiman Marcus on Michigan Avenue. Interior designer turned book author turned fashion designer - Kelly Wearstler - was there to chat with guests and display her new fashion line. The patterns, silhouettes, and materials were everything you'd expect from this designer extraordinaire: everything was bold, vibrant, and sexy. And the accessories were art in themselves. This clutch, in particular, was a personal favorite.

Yeah, that's right. Your eyes are NOT playing a trick on you. Kelly and I are both rocking the skinny pants with moto jackets and fancy heels. [Pats self on back for sartorial victory.] Of course, my jacket was $25 at Target... shhh...

Told you. How amazing are those prints?! And colors?! I'd expect nothing less.

The group of women at the party were uber stylish and most of them run their own fabulous business or work in the fashion industry. Love being surrounded by super-ladies. We ran into Sam Saifer-Berngard (second from right) - you might remember her career profile on The Everygirl last week! What a dynamite lady. She's the one who said, "Success is not easy - and is certainly not for the lazy." Hear hear!

Danielle showed up with two coffee table books in her purse and no pen. It's ok... our friend Kat saved the day when she whipped out a black Sharpie. Love the random surprises ladies keep in their handbags.

It was a wonderful evening, followed by dinner with the girls. 
Cheers to Kelly!

And thank you all so much for your feedback on The Everygirl site! It's very helpful hearing what you like and suggestions you have. Have a wonderful weekend!
