My Fabulous Life: Stella + Dot and Ruth's Chris

I absolutely love my job. It has allowed me to work with some of the most amazing clients, but it has also afforded me the opportunities to go to amazing events for networking and business growth.  Take this past Tuesday for instance. I received an exclusive invitation to a free event celebrating female entrepreneurs. Our local Women in Business event hosted by Marie Claire magazine and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse took place in Pasadena.

It was great hearing Jessica's story from the development, launch and then sale of WeddingChannel.com to her vision and ultimate success with Stella and Dot. Her story was inspiring. Her passion contagious. And she encouraged us, letting us know that her journey was long...in other words, there is no such thing as an overnight success.

After spending WAY too much time in my closet and then asking my friends on Facebook what I should wear, I settled on a sexy black pants suit with a dark pink silk top and some FIERCE black shoes!


{don't ya just love grainy iPhone pics! NOT!}

There was plenty of food provided and Veuve Clicquot Champagne (unlike some of the events I have attended) and not only plenty of it, it was GOOOOOOD!  I mean, it's Ruth's Chris!


My plate wasn't nearly large enough to hold one of everything. Hence a few trips back to the buffet and a few swipes off of the platters that the wait staff passed around. YUMMY!


Jessica Herrin is just as pretty in person. But when my friend asked if I wanted to take a pic with Jessica  I said it wasn't necessary. WHAT WAS I THINKING? I completely forgot I intended to blog about this. Well, take my word for it. She is GORGEOUS. And she was, of course, wearing some amazing pieces from Stella and Dot.  WOOT!

Unlike some of the wedding industry events I have attended, there was an absence of jaw-dropping decor and awe-inspiring floral designs, but let me tell you...I would have rather had the food and the chance to hear Jessica's story.

It was a great 90 minutes.  On the way out we were reminded to grab our swag {HA! As if... right?}  But little did I know what FABULOUSNESS was in store for me. Just check out this loot!

YEAH BABY!  Can't wait to dive in. I absolutely love my job. No lie!

Until Next Time, Stay Fabulous!
