Welcome Back Kate!
Hello polka dot heaven.
Some background: for a few months the Kate Spade store in the Westfield mall on Market Street has been closed. There were signs letting everyone know that they were just getting a facelift and would be back soon, but soon never seems soon enough.
The invitation: There are few things I love more than being invited places. This happens so rarely. Not because I have no life, which is debatable, but mostly because invitations are unfortunately not a real thing anymore. Invitations are such unicorns these days that I take them to be quite the compliment. I will even be flattered by e-vites. Lo and behold, last week I received an email from Kate letting me know in the subject line - "you're invited..." What a hook!
Fast forward to last night: I can honestly say that this was one of the first times that being on a company's email list really, really paid off. Party dresses, shiny stilettos, fall purses, sparkling lemonade, macaroons, and my favorite SF bloggers - such a fabulous way to spend a Thursday night. PLUS I met two bloggers (Lauren of live happy inspired and Em of The Refined Woman), whose sites were very instrumental in the process of getting Lovely Letters started. Yes, I freaked them out with my reaction to their presence but they handled it like the graceful women they are.
And so, I'd just like to say, "Welcome back, Kate! You were sorely missed, but your comeback party was a treat."
Thanks to Lauren's incredible skillz, we have that great aerial shot.
