Last week, I attended Rebecca Minkoff’s tea party, hosted by Rebecca and her incredible team. We sipped tea and champagne, ate delicious scones and sandwiches, and got a sneak peek at their accessories and debut shoe collection. Food, fashion and great conversation is my favorite combination, so you can only imagine what a great time I had. Rebecca reminded me so much of my American Sign Language mentor, Allison Wonder. I may or may not have been tempted to have a conversation with her in ASL. I’m not creepy at all.

It was neat to see that, despite all of us having completely different styles, almost everything could be worked into any of our wardrobes. They pay attention to detail without making anything overly designed or fussy, and everything is exceedingly wearable. That’s what caught my interest in the first place, but the warmth behind the tightly knit operation makes everything that much more alluring. There’s nothing like getting to know the people behind a company; it can make or break a consumer’s experience. We were all lucky enough to go home with a purse of our choice, which may have made the experience that much more.

Love love,

    I'm glad you had such a nice time! It's great when people can come together and enjoy themselves. 🙂

    I wanted to ask you about ASL– was it difficult to get started with it whilst eventually having it become second-nature? I know that it takes practice (a close friend of mine is studying to be an ASL interpreter, and he's tweaked my interest).

    Love Always,
    Amber Rose

    What a beautiful studio! I would love to live in that studio.

    It is a perfect place to have a tea party. Amidst beautiful bags and shoes.
