All the Best + SFERRA Party

I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing week this has been for me, both personally and professionally. Coming off a high from the fantastic LA All the Best + SFERRA party, I wondered how New York would compare. Answer-it was superb! I was beyond delighted by the turnout this past Wednesday. Todd Romano graciously opened his showroom for our fabulous fête. A huge thank you to everyone who hosted me this week for teas, lunches and dinners. I especially appreciate everyone who came in support and celebration of the SFEERA All the Best partnership. You all are the best!

More photos on All the Best Blog Facebook Fan Page. I've had several emails asking about my dress. It was designed by the super talented Josephine Sasso, and it's made of upholstery fabric. Thanks Josephine for making me look so good.
