FLASHBACK to TWO years ago - we were younger and we were WILD!

Running on no sleep, Mia and I hit Cartier for stylist Rachel Zoe's Book Party. We admired diamonds, knocked the DJ's skills, ate olives on the roof, wondered where all the people were and wished we were across the street at the Chanel party. The stuffiness of the Cartier group forced us to S Bar in Hollywood. This party was for french shoe designer Christian Louboutin, whose red sole shoes are a must-have on the red carpet!

FUNNY SIDE STORY: On our drive I noticed I had 16 missed calls from my mom. Fearing the worst, I called her, She was crying, very upset and on the other line with Mia's dad, Barry, trying to get Mia's cell number! She was certain I had been kidnapped! I guess I accidentally called her from my purse on the way to Cartier. She heard Mia and I talking for a bit then the "ding ding" of car doors opening, then a commotion and men. She tried to call me back and insists a man (valet?) picked up the phone and yelled something like "Blaaaaaa!!" loudly and in a mean way. She proceeded to call me over and over (as well as all my friends to assist in the developing abduction case she was forming in her mind). Mia and I couldn't stop laughing while she was crying on the phone...sorry mom, we are alive and well!

Meanwhile, over at S Bar's chic soiree, the scene was young, crowded, hipper than Cartier, and much more our speed. The interior was fantastic - upside down vintage lamps hanging from the ceiling, candelabras everywhere, interesting scenic wall coverings & food from Katsuya! As Mia interviewed the Olsens, a gal from Style.com interviewed and took pictures of me! Who was I wearing?(my own creation) What are my fashionable plans for the rest of the week? (beats me?)What did I do for a living?...I keep looking for myself on Style.com in the "Street Scene" section. Cool kids like Ashley Olsen, Rachel Bilson, Hayden Panettiere and Kristen Bell nibbled on sushi while showing off their new shoes. All in all, it was a super fun night and we made a pit stop for Tylenol PM on the way home - hopefully I can finally catch up on some sleep!

Your Mother Darling... said...

I could cry right now thinking about that horrible man trying to kidnap you off the mean streets of LA! I worry every day & espcially night....do you have pepper spray? Do you practice your self defense skills? I'm always worried that you are not getting enough sleep too! And one more thing....I don't want you to text when you drive anymore! I'm your Mother Darling and I just can't help but worry.....Love you!

I'm also worried about you getting the swine flu and would have you wear a mask every time you leave the house....at least wash you hands alot! By the way... how's the cut on your hand doing....I was worried that you might need stitches?
