So around two years ago I was asked to be a part in a Los Angeles fashion and style book and you better believe I said yes! To make the deal even sweeter, Melissa Magsaysay who is the style editor at the  LA Times would be writing this book (fun fact: Melissa is also a Filipina--holla--with a pretty illustrious family history back in the Philippines).

 The other night there was a release party for it up in LA at the Philip Lim 3.1 store so Grant and I decided to hoof it up there and check things out. Now let's get one thing straight, I don't normally go to fancy fashion events where air kisses and free flowing champagne are the norm  but for the night, it was fun to pretend that we belonged ;-) The event was packed so Grant and I found a secluded little enclave in the store and nibbled on what was essentially fancy chicken and waffle bites and took the whole scene in. My one observation: why do women feel the need to wear 5+ high heels when they literally CAN NOT walk in said heels? Riddle me that, eh?

Anyway, the event was a huge success. Congrats Melissa!

PPS: We saw Russell Brand across the street from this event last night and I got weirdly excited (reason: I never recognize celebrities, ever). Natalie, I thought you'd appreciate this tidbit.
