My new camera arrived and we are slowly getting acquainted. I know most fashion bloggers upgrade from a point and shoot to a DLSR, but I like to do things a little different and downgrade from a DLSR to a point and shoot.
Yesterday I took the day off work to lounge, read and go to a book signing. One of my favorite authors, Richelle Mead was near town, up in Allen and I was super excited to get to see her in person.
I had to carry two bags as no bag could contain both all of the books I wanted signed as well as my everyday things.
Behold: the books I wanted signed:
That’s the first book from each of the series by her that I read as well as the hardback of the book the actual tour is for. She technically only signs three books person, but my girlfriend only wanted to have two books signed so she carried my fourth through the line for me.
I wore a tee shirt that my BFF Alannah sent me that I got Saturday and have already worn twice. You know how I do.
I also made a necklace for Ms. Mead based on a design that is important to the characters in the Vampire Academy series. Of course I made one for me as well. I really like that it’s subtle but also very specific to the books. I can be a fan-girl without wearing something silly like an “I love Dimitri” necklace, which might be great if I were 15, but is not so cool at 34.
(IDK what I'm doing here but I like my hair cape)
After seeing the pics, I wasn’t super excited by the way the leggings looked and changed into black and white patterned tights.
And to cap things off, a lovely picture of the super friendly and amazing Ms. Mead..
Is she not ADORABLE?
And a slightly horrid picture of me in which Ms Mead is signing my books.
I had a great time with my friends, sitting around talking waiting for the signing to start and Ms. Mead was so friendly and accommodating. She read from the new book, did a Q and A and signed up to three books for around 350 people and she did it all with a smile.
