Hooray for Design*Sponge book signing celebration!!!!!!! Anthropologie on State St. hosted a lovely party with cupcakes (stood there looking at them trying to choose between red velvet or peanut butter chocolate far longer than I should have), homemade cookies via the store manager's mother (I had 2), and apple spritzers to boot! I even brushed elbows with Grace in line as she snagged some cookies before running to the signing table!
My mother and I got there a few minutes early to beat the lines and breezed right up to the signing table where Grace Bonney was wearing an adorable black and cream striped sweater dress with a pair of black, flat ankle boots (fancy, but casual). I must admit, I was a little starstruck by her whole...aura haha but was excited to get my book signed and take a picture with her. It is so odd to finally meet her after reading Design*Sponge for so long! Looking forward to more d*s books to come!
Oh, and we stopped at Corner Bakery for a quick bite between shopping and the signing...LOVED the typographic cups and the pretty lights in front of the Palmer Hotel!
