IMG_6301 Well, hello there, VIP readers! It has been a super busy week for me between studying for exams and meeting  fabulous and terrific people and designers at Gus Mayer in Birmingham, Alabama! It was such a delight to meet and interview designer Gene Kargan of Lola and Sophie–whose blouses are so versatile and super flattering! I absolutely cannot wait to blog about the spectacular sun yellow Lola and Sophie blouse I got! Ahh It is so so SO cute!

Guess who else I met?  Come on…take a guess!  No, I did not meet Ellen DeGeneres…although that would be a dream come true…Don’t you just love her show! IMG_6349 Okay…no more guesses because I cannot contain my excitement any longer! I met and chatted with renowned Polish fashion designer Karolina Zmarlak! Oh, fashionistas! Karolina has a fabulous and strategic eye for creating sophisticated clothing that make women feel confident and empowered.

Sneak Peek! This was before the horrid poison ivy incident....

Sneak Peek of the “vine” incident…

This is just a sneak peek of the VIP’s week…I do not want to spoil all of the fabulousness! Phew, it has been a busy week. After I post this blog, there is much more work to be done! Three videos to make, interview blogs to write, photos to edit…oh, speaking of editing photos…there was actually a minor…well, major issue with the “vines” photo shoot as it has been labeled at the Hathorn house…At the end of the day, it was totally worth it! Whoa…I just remembered I have exams next week! Note to self: Study and make flashcards.
