A few days ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend an “After-Hours Fete” at Tiffany’s to celebrate their new Atlas collection. What was even more exciting is Aimee Song of Song of Style would be hosting the event! As an avid reader of her blog, I’ve seen snippets of the Atlas collection through the eyes of her instagram, so I was looking forward to actually seeing the jewelry and her, in real life. Can you say #fangirl?
Boom! That is some serious bling.
Step 1: Check out the goods.
I couldn’t help but wonder what the models are thinking in their head.
They’re kind of tall.
The hour isn’t happy until you get your drinks on! I have to admit, the hor d’oeuvres were also quite delicious.
Aimee mingling. She was hot stuff as expected– within 45 minutes a long line to meet her had already formed.
I’m a big goofball. As per usual.
When I met Aimee, I told her the story about how I once was trying to take a picture at Tartine Bakery by standing at a bench, and almost fell, face first. It was pretty dramatic– I almost died. You can see by my serious expression that this was indeed, a suspenseful story.
She also agreed that sometimes, for the sake of art, you must take risks. After all, she is also a food enthusiast at heart.
For those of you who were wondering, Aimee is just as nice and sweet as she seems on her blog. For all my jokes, she was actually very kind– going along with my tale of near death and agreeing that it very dangerous. She took the time to really talk to everyone, which I think that all of us greatly appreciated.
The jewelry was also as shiny in real life, just like in photos. I do like how its theme is inspired by ancient Roman empires. On their website, the description states that “Roman numerals are the ageless artifacts of a great civilization and its elevated concept of time.” With such a grand description it’s only fitting that the fete was such as well.
