Meeting DVF!

I met my fashion/life icon last week. Diane von Furstenberg. My life is made.

My mother and I were both cordially invited to attend the DVF private launch party event last Thursday. Diane was hosting the official launch party of the Bellevue store + promoting her new book, The Woman I Wanted to Be. I can't wait to read it!

Fast forward to the party - while standing in line, Diane looks up, glances over at my mom and me, and waves. I have no idea why, but she didn't wave to anyone else at the store. So, obviously I almost fainted.

At the party, I also met Kier, one of the girls from the DVF'S new show, House of DVF. She was ironically wearing almost the same thing I was! 

When I finally sat down to get my book signed by Diane, when it was just the two of us, I asked her,

"Is it worth it to move to New York City to pursue my career?" 
she looked at me, paused, and said 
"If you love it and you want to, it's always worth it."
