PS- I'm wearing a James Perse blouse, Bird by Juicy Couture dress & Blazer, my dad's belt (which I guess is technically mine now) and Jessica Simpson heels that you probably can't see that well

On Monday night I had the tremendous honor to be invited to Kenneth Cole's Spring 2011 preview dinner. The collection was opened to the press on Tuesday, but Kenneth made a conscious decision to show it to the blogging community and the internet community first. He gave a speech at the start of the dinner saying "We at the brand feel like we're so cool now that we've embraced this new generation of movers and shakers in fashion!" He was so unbelievably awesome, laid-back and genuinely interested in what we as bloggers and real people have to say.
The dinner was based around the actual theme-er themes I should say- of the actual collection: The mountains, desert and rainforest. Everything from the food we were served to the actual table were designed around those 3 places. I sat at the rainforest end of the table between Christine and Arielle, it was suuuuch fun! In between servings, waiters actually came around with accessories on trays for us to look at, which was a bit bizarre but really fun. It was a super fun experience indeed.
OOH! and we were given these really nifty sony Bloggie cameras. It was fun documenting the night with it. Everyone seemed to choose to take their cameras out at the same time during the evening when something amusing would happen at the table. Nothing like a bunch of bloggers snapping away at a table full of good spirits.
