A sincerely fantastic night at gr.dano's spring 2011 preview party! There were racks of their beautiful garments to finger through... (each piece is a work of art in fabric) and as I pressed my lips to be sure no smidge of drool would embarrass me, I had a wonderful daydream that this entire collection was sitting majestically at home in my closet. 
I fell in love with a trenchcoat from the current autumn/winter designs... well, as in love as one may appropriately be with an article of clothing... it is captivating and chic, water-repellant and dashing, and it exudes a sense of strong feminine with its cut and the reflection of delicate light.
The crowd was as warm and inviting as the space itself indeed... meandering through delightful conversations with Christina of profreshstyle, Michelle of fvncy, Adelle of fashionistalabsanfrancisco, Nikki of stylebust, Mignon of thechicspy, and of course talking about the brand with the designers; Jill Giordano and Brian Scheyer, and catching up with their talented extended team members Shaneia and Zenia.

I love nights like this when the vibe is so chill you want to just throw a sleepover and camp out in the venue till coffee and bagels at dawn. Amazing garments mixed with good conversation and others fashionably interested is always inspiring.
