You know how your mother always told you to wear clean underwear in case you get in an accident? Well, you should always look your best in case you have the opportunity to meet Zac Posen! Yes that right folks, yours truly had the opportunity to meet Zac P, but instead of introducing myself and taking a picture with Mr. Posen, I stood to the side (tho very close to him) b/c I had on an Old Navy striped cardigan and jeans and felt a bit embarrassed :-/
In a nutshell, this is what happened...I got an invite from Saks saying they were hosting a meet and greet w/ Zac to introduce his new line, Z Spoke. Of course I get the e-mail after the RSVP list is already closed, but luckily my friend had sense enough to call and leave our names on the RSVP line anyway. Days go by and we hear nothing and we decided we weren't going to bother crashing, but on the day of the event she gets a call saying we're on the list!!!! My heart started palpitating b/c I wasn’t going to have time to run home and change, but I took a deep breath, told myself I was fabulous regardless of what I was wearing and I sucked it up and went anyway, and I am so glad I did!!!!
It was a small intimate event, and he was so personable and happy to meet his admirers. Although I was too chicken to go up to him in my sub par outfit I did get a few decent shots. Lesson learned…wake up every day and say to yourself “what would I wear if I had the chance to meet Zac P today.” J/K. I’m not dressed to impress today either, but what are the odds of meeting a great designer two days in a row?
he spoke briefly abt the clothes, but for the most part he mingled with the crowd posing for pictures and having casual conversations.
zac from the back...he had the cutest awkward little walk which you can kinda see in the way he stands.
check this woman out! not sure if she works for him, or if she is a stalker, but everywhere he went, she went, and as the night went on he appeared to be more and more turned off by her.
my partner in crime for the evening! she skipped out of work early to change into leopard pants, theory boots, a juicy jacket and rebecca minkoff bag. meanwhile i was left standing in old navy :(
this dress was one of my fav looks of the night!
had i been prepared for the event, i think the photos and the situation would have played out very differently, but in the end, it was a great experience, and i am still on cloud 9!
So cool you got to do this!! As for the stalker...that's totally been me. I stalked Adrian Grenier the other week at a party without realizing it until he totally gave me the stank eye. Oops!ReplyDelete
Awww....Am sure u looked Fabulous. CongratsReplyDelete
Hmm let me go check my email...if i got anything from saks.
I have to agree with you that you are still on cloud 9 because of the way your story unfolds.I saw several dresses (by him online) at Saks that I deem appropriate for me.If my bank account were bursting at the seam, I would have ordered them.(lol)I love your partner in crime bag.ReplyDelete
that's pretty cool!ReplyDelete
I'm sure you were rockin your Old Navy cardi & jeans!
At least you went! Girl that is definitely a story you will not forget. He is too cute and love your friend's ensemble.ReplyDelete

my boyfriend always asks me why i dress up for work, it´s just work. i always tell him, you never know what can happen there! one day the country manager gave a visit and he said i looked amazing. first impressions last, right? SO YEAH, why choose the days to look best if we can look amazing everyday? ;)ReplyDelete
-end of my super long comment-
Of course I have zero idea who Zac Posen is ... but I can tell by the amount of enthusiasm displayed on your part that it was an exciting moment for you and others.ReplyDelete
Agreed @ My heart started palpitating b/c I wasn’t going to have time to run home and change, but I took a deep breath, told myself I was fabulous regardless of what I was wearing and I sucked it up and went anyway, and I am so glad I did!!!!
Kinda how I felt the first and only time I met and hugged Whitney Houston in '93.
