Our blog is on hiatus for a while, but I decided to open up the vault and post about my upcoming spin as an Ambassador at the Legends of La Cienega festivities in Los Angeles. John will be with me, natch, but I get to wear the sash or whatever… Two years ago, I moderated a panel discussion at Legends, and it was a blast. This go-around I only have to sip cocktails and look pretty and engaging and Instagram with wild abandon.
The 6th annual Legends of La Cienega runs from May 7-9 and boasts the theme “Novel Interiors: Storytelling By Design.” The three-day event in the heart of West Hollywood’s design district includes terrific lectures, presentations, open houses, and all sorts of amazing activities. Expect lots of design aficionados and the editors of all the major shelter magazines.
Highlights include a keynote speech by dashing Veranda editor in chief Clinton Smith on the Power of Authenticity, a power lunch hosted by dapper Elle Decor editor in chief Michael Boodro, a meet and greet cocktail tea (um, how fabulous is that?) with House Beautiful power player Newell Turner, and a talk with Hutton Wilkinson on our heroine Elsie de Wolfe. Um, heaven.
Plus, John and I get to rub very chic shoulders with our fellow ambassadors, including the divine Lisa Herring Mende, Ronda Carman, Stacey Bewkes, and other blog-world luminaries… And we get to see folks like Joe Lucas, Suzanne Rheinstein, Karyn Millet, Darra Baker, Emily Docken Webster, and others.
We plan to scamper about and cause some mischief and mayhem, so get ready. See you at the Sunset Tower after hours!
