The Sartorialist + Garance Dore

Yesterday I managed to meet both Scott Schuman and Garance Dore at Scott's book signing at Liberty. I didn't realise Garance would be there so was ecstatic when I caught sight of her.

The signing began at 7.00pm by which time a two hour queue of picture perfect fashionistas had formed but it was worth the wait. Scott was determined to meet everyone who had queued, and personally went round the queue around 9ish, when the store was due to close, telling fans he would continue signing till everyone was seen.

They were both so lovely and friendly, and couldn't say no to pictures and chatting despite the staff's best efforts to usher fans through. I love Garance, her accent, simple makeup, blog, sketches, everything! She looked amazing in a high waisted mini skirt which showcased her amazing legs in some killer heels and a simple black blouse. I chatted to her about two of her recent posts, one about her sisters and another about where to find skinny track pants (AA in a small size if you're interested) and how best to wear them 'with high heels?' 'but of course!'. I could have chatted for ages but I realised I was being selfish, said goodbye clutching my freshly signed book, and happy in the knowledge they were both as nice as I had hoped they would be.
