True Prep Event

Monday night, I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Lisa Birnbach and Chip Kidd. They were doing a book signing here in Dallas at the Sperry store. Not only did Lisa and Chip sign my copy of True Prep (I left my copy of The Official Preppy Handbook at home on the counter, I was SO upset!), but they were both such dears. And so funny!
I wasn't really looking for new shoes, but since we were in the Sperry store, it was only right that I try a few pairs on! Once I saw these boots, I knew they had to be mine! Quilted, lined with fleece, and totally equestrian is everything I look for in a shoe!
Of course, I had to have my new boots monogrammed! The talented Rodney White is an artist from Brooklyn and was set up to make everyone's new shoes special! He did my monogram in navy and white. He also mixed a specific color of pink paint for those that wanted pink!

Aside from meeting Lisa and Chip and having our Sperrys monogrammed, my favorite part of the night was spending time with other bloggers and great friends!


  1. Oh Boo! I missed it! I had Kappa Tablescapes auction. I'm going to have to look up where they are going next! I hope you had a wonderful time! Monogrammed Sperrys! Swoon!

  2. That is so exciting! I would love monogrammed Sperrys!

  3. How fun! Love the boots and the comment in your book. :)
