You know what is a little bit nutso? Getting to meet someone whose name you’ve seen on storefronts your entire life. Kenneth Cole is such a mega-brand, it’s easy to forget he’s actually a real person — much less a sweet, humble, incredibly cool person who invited twenty or so of his favorite bloggers to dinner on Monday night of this week.
And guess what? One of those invitations went to me! On Friday of last week, I received an awesome Sony “Bloggie” video camera with a video invite from Kenneth Cole himself — what an invitation! And three days later, I was beyond thrilled to meet THE Kenneth Cole at his beautiful showroom, to eat a delicious dinner inspired by his collection and sneak the first peek at his beautiful clothes, shoes and bags for Spring. The clothes were inspired by the mountains, the rainforest and the desert, and I was pretty darn inspired by them — so beautiful, chic and effortless, exactly what I like.
I had so much fun with bloggers I already know and a few new ones I hadn’t met — there are so many great girls with amazing sites, and I think we were all so universally grateful to be included in a night like this! It’s always so inspiring (and intimidating) to hear what everyone is up to!
I’m going to post some videos of the Kenneth Cole event to the Sugarlaws Facebook page this weekend (I’m excited and frightened that Sugarlaws now has more Facebook friends than I do personally!), and while you’re there, check out some of the photos I took of the Tory Burch Spring 2011 collection! But first, scroll down for more from this amazing night with Kenneth Cole!

The absolutely beautiful table settings — but be careful!
The middle of the table is water, and someone maaaay have dropped a fork into it…

Kenneth let us each pick out a bag or pair of shoes at the end of the event.

Love it so much — how classic and gorgeous is it?
Ok, so, um, why is it that I’m the only person at the table laughing hysterically?
I am such a dork.
But I love this photo.
