First I received this box . . . :
And inside was this lovely note:
The note was from Heather Holt, the founder of internet-based rent-a-heel site Just Soles (think Rent The Runway but with only high-end heels). A few weeks prior, I was asked to be one of a few New York City fashion bloggers to participate in the site’s launch party by modeling a pair of shoes available for rent on site.
My Night Modeling Manolos (Er, Kirkwoods) For The Launch Of Just Soles

Many of my dear friends showed up to support me (including the LOML):
I even made a great new friend, Tracy from Tracy’s New York Life:

I proudly shared the stage with these other bloggers – from left, Amanda Minkoff of Amandalandish.com, Emily Bache and Abigail Breslin of wanderlust.com, Tracy Kaler of Tracysnewyorklife.com, and Tineey of Tineey.com – and Heather from Just Soles (far right):
Thank you to Janine (far left) and her great team at Janine Just for making the night possible:
I am still floating on all the champagne bubbles and glowing from my night in the spotlight.
