The Social Diary Hosts Very Fashionable Luncheon with Neiman Marcus - 2010
(followed by The Buzz!!)
Thee Social Diary and Neiman Marcus collaborated for a very special luncheon August 20th, 2010 featuring Fall Trends. And not just any Fall Trends, but a top notch presentation by DSA Alex Yanez. DSA, that's Fine Apparel Designated Sales Associate, or as some ladies refer to him, Desirable Stylist Associate. He is known as the 'go to' guy. Hey, as Alex explained it, he was dressed in Baby Dior at age 1, and his love affair with fashion has never stopped!
Among the ladies there for this inaugural fashion lunch and first viewing of designer trends were some of San Diego's most powerful women, and two men, on the charitable scene. Among the fun set were Valerie Cooper, Sheryl White, Karen Cohn, Iris Strauss, Lee Clark, Joan Waitt, Natasha Reiss with her fiance EJ aka Erik Johnson, Claire Reiss, Cynthia Vassallo, Lynda Kerr, Rocio Flynn, The Social Diary hosts, Margo Schwab, Scott Johnston and Kima, and the terrific hosts at Neiman's including Lyndy Carreiro, Ida Sandico-Whitaker, Alex Yanez, Jade Wong, and terrific Linda Cantowine in shoes.
This wonderful group was brought together not just for fun and fashion, but to spotlight all of the phenomenal contributions they do for San Diego charitable organizations. Among the list: San Diego Opera, Old Globe Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse Promises 2 Kids, ChildHelp USA, United Way, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Seakeepers, Las Patronas, Wounded Warriors, Council on Sexual Assault and Violence, Planned Parenthood, Salvation Army, Bishop's School, and the Salk Institute.
Neiman Marcus in San Diego by the way supports quite a few organizations but most notably the Old Globe Theatre, the San Diego Opera and Seacrest Retirement Villages..... as well as pretty much all the others!
Guests enjoyed a fashionably light lunch of either grilled shrimp salad with quinoa drizzled by a lemon vinaigrette, or a light pesto pasta. A berry parfait followed for dessert!
The most fun course though was the fashion! In meetings with Alex the purpose wasn't just to show Fall Trends but rather Fall Trends with imaginative designer mixing. Prada, Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Escada, Versace were combined to formulate exciting and versatile head to toe looks.
Trends included beautiful shades of green, lace, feathers, capes, structured handbags that went the gammit of daytime to night time couture with Judith Leiber's Swarovski encrusted disco ball with tassel, pearls, that's lots of pearls of all lengths, and those very popular boots from booties to over the knee to way, way up to 'there!'
Shoes spot lit included Louboutin, love those red 'souls!' to back on the design front Miu Miu and newer on the scene Pedro Garcia.
The Social Diary would like to thank Neiman Marcus and especially Alex for giving us the first peak at 'Fall Fashion Chemistry' at its best. Some highlights included a multicolored jersey dress by Etro paired with an emerald green Escada pony coat and burgundy patent leather Miu Miu sandals, a midnight blue Lanvin dress with 'un peu de poof' sleeves and raw edges, cinched at the waist with a skinny black patent leather bow belt by Prada and navy silk satin Pedro Garcia booties with raw edges, tulle, and small black Swarovski crystals on the toe.
All in all a great day to thank wonderful, wonderful people who do so much for the community... and they do so with great style and grace...The Social Diary salutes you!

p.s. Alex Yanez during the Neiman's fashion luncheon with The Social Diary revealed two secrets. He's been known to organize select customers' closets.... and the smart ones know to ask him for some of his organic eggs. Yes Alex raises Mille Fleur Bantams, a breed of chicken. In fact his show chickens won at this year's Del Mar Fair. He joked that after a $12 entry fee, he was awarded a $20 winners check for a net $8!!
