Make That Out To....

Apparently it’s my week to talk gush over famous people. I am SO excited though because tonight I am going to see Emily Giffin IN person! Emily lives in Buckhead Atlanta (which means we could potentially hang out and be best friends right? gah, i'm so creepy sometimes) and is doing a book signing at a local establishment to celebrate the premier of “Something Borrowed.” Eeeek! Do you know how excited I am?! I love all of her books – every time one comes out I read it in like a week ( this is totally considered speed-reading for me). Her stories and characters are so relatable. 


BUT…..do you want to know my biggest dilemma? What does one wear to an event like this? I need advice ladies - I will be monitoring comments and suggestions like it's my job today! I’ve never been to a book-signing before so I need your help! 

I don’t know what I’ll do if one of the stars from the movie is there….Actually, that is  a lie. I know just what I’ll do – and that is wait in however long a line there is until I can meet them and get a picture to post on Facebook so I can pronounce to the world that I met a star – because naturally everyone will care. But in all reality, I think a little line-waiting time would be beneficial – you know, work on being cool, keeping the smile down from cheesy creepy to normal human. 


I hope to report back star-studded happenings on Monday! Cross your fingers. This could be my biggest moment since Kelly Ripa tweeted me yesterday (yep, I just name-dropped. ha! I’m so subtle ) ;)

What are you doing this weekend? I have exciting plans – cant’ wait to share more! Happy Weekending
XO,
A

That sounds like fun and your posts always make me smile:) I would probably wear a cute dress or pants and a nice blouse:) Have a fantastic day, sunshine. Kisses

Abby said...

Wow, that will be so fun! I think whatever you wear will be perfect. Can't wait to hear if any celebs show up (I am so excited for the movie!!)

Beth said...

so exciting. i don't really read so i don't get excited about authors but this sounds super fun. just wear a cute little summer dress. i know you've got something in that closet of yours that will be PERFECT for an emily griffin meet and greet! can't wait to hear all about it.

I've always wanted to go to a book signing! I'd love to go see Bethenny because she is basically amazing.

Hmmm I would wear a cute casual dress, maybe a cardigan over it, and some cute heels! Anything you wear though will look fab. I could go creep through your facebook pics and say "oh wear that dress you have in photo number 4 in album number 6" (dont worry I wont lol) but ahh I am so so jealous!

still jelly that Kelly Ripa tweeted you. You're a STAH!

Lindsey said...

omg, i'm so excited for you and so jealous at the same time. I've never been to a book signing, but I have friends who have. One of my friends met Bethenny and she wore a cute, casual dress. I know other's who have worn jeans and a cute top. But you gotta be on top of your game and look super cute so that they'll notice how cute you are and realize that y'all destined to be BFFs.

I went to a Guiliana and Bill event with 2 besties and Guil was totally eyeing us in the second row the entire time. Like, obvs she wanted to be BFFs. I LOVE HER!!

All right, soo back to you. I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU, for realsies. In my head I'm picturing dark denim, a stripped tank with super cute nude pumps and straight hair with big bangels. That is just in my head. Not saying you have to make this visual come true, but you better if you know what is good for you. i kid, i kid. CANT WAIT TO HEAR DEETS AND SEE PICS.

btw, longest comment ever. I ramble.

SO exciting. what if you went with something a little crazy? something to make sure you are not forgotten?! something that when your future kids look at the picture from this event, they can't help but both roll their eyes and think they have the most rockstar mom ever?!?!

Jana said...

I agree with Beth, I think a cute sundress will be perfect! It is intimidating though because EG always dresses sooo stylish. I love all of the dresses I see her in! So envious, she is my favorite author ever! Homegirl needs to get to writing again!!

Suze said...

definately a fun cute springy summery dress!

have fun meeting her lucky duck :)

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

aw, girl - we don't tell you what to wear. you are always soooo stylish! seriously!!

and i have yet to read this book. i really wanna read it before i see the movie - the movies looks so fun!

angel glover. said...

so excited for you. :) hope you have an ah-mazing time!! i think you should wear the denim looking strapless dress (profile picture #16 haha) or the one in your twitter picture. or maybe jeans and a nice top...idk how formal book signings are. but either way you should definitely wear tons of bangles:) you'll look gorgeous in anything and i can't wait to see your new fb picture;) XO

Katie said...

I would wear a cute floral summer dress and a cardigan! seems to be the common answer :) I got a cute one from Target this past weekend and they had a cardigan to match! 1 stop shopping :)

Jamie said...

Ooomg! How exciting! I know you'll have lots of fun :)

Can't wait to see pictures and hear all about it!

Sunshinemeg said...

Just stumbled across your blog and loved it! Too cute. I would end up either being overly creeper or freeze and not say anything. Ha! Hope you do better than me. New follower and just wanted to say hi = )

Amber said...

So excited for you girl! I don't read many books...mainly trashy gossip magazines or something of the sort....but I have heard amazing things about this author. I have actually been wanting to read something borrowed. {The movie trailers look really good} /I would probably wear a cute dress and wedges {who knows how long you'll have to wait in line} I hope you are able to get a picture with her!!

natasha {schue love} said...

How fun! You must document what you end up wearing!

Sarah said...

I was listening to star94 the other day because I'm not too far from ATL. and they had Kate Hudson on talking about the movie. Cindy was talking about how Emily Giffin lived there and she wanted to be friends with her!

Rissy said...

I stink so badly for not commenting until today because clearly this was a time sensitive post! DANG IT!

ok well I pretty much love your style and am sure that whatever you chose to wear was/is perfect.

Can't wait to hear how it went!
