Pinkalicious is contageous

18 Oct

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Saturday, October 15, whole third floor of “Room&Board” (about 9,000 sq.feet) was full of pink. Victoria Kann, the author of “Pinkalicious”, was visiting from New York for book reading and signing. Sea of babies, toddlers and kids was bestirring around, sipping on milk, crunching on pretzels and carrots… climbing beds and chairs… decorating pumpkins… and, of course, listening to Victoria reading the book. The line of pinkalicious  fans seemed never-ending, but attendants were very patient. No wonder, Victoria paid personal attention to everyone, – they talked about outfits, and Halloween decor, and then she added individual message to the book – of course, in pink ink! Getting such experience (including picture with famous author and illustrator from New York!) would definitely make anyone’s day.

Enjoy 209 pictures (impossible to stop when there is so much cuteness and laughter around)

Fashion appreciators of all ages all streamed up here so they could see the showcase of about 11 boutiques, celebrating Summer and (can you believe it?) Fall 2011. Very chosen ones could enjoy private pre-runway reception with New York Times bestselling author Kelly Cutrone in Redwood restaurant.
