Cupcakes and Cashmere for Club Monaco

Last night I threw on a Michael Kors dress and headed into the famous Beverly Hills for a special treat: Emily Schuman was throwing a launch party for her brand new Club Monaco line.

The event was held in the Club Monaco store, itself, on Beverly Drive. There were red velvet ropes, doormen, balloons, and–of course–cupcakes!

I was greeted by a sales associate who gave me a tour and showed me the new Cupcakes and Cashmere collection–designed by Emily, herself. The line includes some classy, staple pieces like a leather skirt and a practical trench-coat. However, the star of the collection is undoubtably a jeweled, backless dress, which Emily personally modeled at the event.

I got the chance to chat with Emily a little bit about the line. I told her that I work with so many bloggers, but I don’t always follow them–but hers is one of my favorites! (By the way, she’s just as beautiful in person as she is on Cupcakes and Cashmere.)

It was a really special night, and I was so excited to have met one of my idols (or, “The Cupcake Lady,” as my boyfriend calls her…)
