Here's the view from my room in Indy. I was so delighted to be able to look out on Indiana's beautiful state buildings. I usually end up with a nice view of a rooftop HVAC system.
(Did you know that the dome of the West Virginia State Capitol Building is covered in gold leaf? Odd, but very striking to see when you come into the Kanawha River valley.)
Must drive away with the girl within hours--so without further ado....
I stayed pretty casual during the day. There was nothing official I needed to do, so I attended some panels and had lunch with a few beloved friends.
Sweater: Ralph Lauren (Sam's) $21; Scarf (love the color and pattern) $5; Nine West jeans $17; Earrings: $7; Shoes: (Last year's) $24 Total: $74
Yes, I was being silly, sitting inappropriately on a chair in my hotel room. What do you do in a hotel room when you're all alone on a Friday night and are completely sober? (I also blogged, read, packed some, and did email. I didn't suffer too much, though. Attending the Random House party was part of my Author girl job, but it was a lot of fun. Then there was after-party sushi with vibrant writer-chicks Lois Greiman and Jeannie Holmes to top off the evening.)
Sweater: Cable and Gauge (Sam's) $17; George scoop-neck shell $12; Norma Kamali Wide-Leg Pants: $18; Norma Kamali Black Patent Sling-Backs $20; Jewelry: $29 Total: $100 (Most expensive yet, maybe?)
Many thanks to J.T. Ellison for taking the daytime pic!
BTW--I've had to switch to comment moderation because of spam and a couple of rude, anonymous comments. Too bad. Leaving a nasty comment on a person's blog is like putting a bag of flaming dog shit on their front porch, ringing the doorbell, and running away. Thanks, but no thanks.
