On Monday, I was lucky enough to attend a book signing by one of my favorite authors, Emily Giffin. Emily is the author of 6 books, including “Where we Belong” her new release, and is a UVa Law alumna to boot.
The super cute (albeit pricey) boutique Urban Chic hosted Emily’s afternoon tea and book signing event and they did a great job. Their staff was charming band friendly and since this was my first “lady who lunches” day (vacay in between jobs), I indulged in a delicious bellini. There were all kinds of delicious treats and snacks and the store looked adorable.
While waiting to meet Emily, my friend A and I chatted, checked out the cute clothes and tried to stay cool. Urban Chic is located in a tiny building that was packed out with Emily Giffin fans! I lamented the fact that I didn’t bring all my Emily Giffin books — I’ve read (and own) everything she’s published. She definitely is one of my favorites and I’m glad I get to take her newest read to the beach with me!
Finally, we got to the head of the line and had the chance to chat with Emily for a minute and get a picture with her. She was funny, gracious and absolutely gorgeous! Such a fun way to spend the afternoon!
