*holiday party with the clinton foundation in NYC*

watching the golden globes the other night, i was surprised just like everyone else when former POTUS, bill clinton, unexpectedly appeared as a presenter for best movie nominee, lincoln!  it reminded me…holy crow…i never posted my outfit from when i attended the clinton foundation holiday party in NYC almost a month ago.  thank you for the reminder, mr. president…hahaha!

wearing:  erin fetherston cape sleeve dress (similar)|| vintage glass bead necklace || gold clutch (c/o the haberdash) || NYLA gold/mesh heels

it was a super fun night out at espace in NY.  as with any party you would expect hosted by a former leader of the free world, the food was over the top, the drinks were free flowing & the DJ top notch!  also a dessert bar with many macarons & a PHOTO BOOTH (p.s. i love photobooths)!  

mr. clinton even graced the crowd with a short, but lovely speech & was very patient to chat briefly during photo ops!  he is such a warm & inviting individual, so gracious with his time…no wonder i look so smitten!  he has done amazing things for our country & continues to do so for the entire world.  lovely meeting you (again), mr. president!

FINALLY…here’s why i was in NYC for such a quick visit this past weekend…got to meet the former POTUS himself…BILL CLINTON!!! what?!?!  i can still hardly believe it myself!!!  it took place at the beautiful dream downtown hotel in the meatpacking district.

so, if you follow me on twitter, you probably saw all my stress tweets from last week.  since i was invited to the NYC holiday party for the clinton foundation (disclosure: MDH’s employer), i was going *nuts* over what i would be wearing!!!  i finally decided on this full length zac posen for target gown that i bought sooo long ago & never thought i’d have an occasion to wear, but lo & behold, it sure came in handy at the right time!  however, i was so stressed because i had to hack 5 inches off its complicated fishtail hem & only had a time span of 2 days to do it O.O  i sure had some project runway moments there, but i finished it!

so, it was kind of a typical work party…free wine, passed apps & like eleventifrillion people clamoring around president clinton & trying to get a picture with him.  oh wait, ok, maybe not a typical work party…hahaha!  it was just fun to be in the same room with him & even saw chelsea briefly during the event, but i spent most of the time chatting with MDH’s work colleagues that i’ve met before, making friends with new ones & generally having a goody ol’ time.  then, just like that…the ball was over, time to take my pretty gown & glittery shoes & shake it on home (which in this case was my friend’s midtown apartment).  all in all, a GREAT night ^_^
