Socialite-ing: My Favorite Things Event for Glenwood Autism

Oh boy, they even had Zaps: Me, Sloan, and MBK

As Mary Beth and I clacked in our heels up to the red carpet (synomous in Birmingham with MyScoop), we had a good feeling about escaping tonight from the gates of Samford for the unconventional. With an array of toys in hand, Magic City socialites came out of the recent chill of the Birmingham air and into Gus Mayer tonight. Glenwood Inc. center for autism teamed up with Southern style guide MyScoop for "My Favorite Things:" an evening to raise money and donate toys to the center.

A bar of creamy grits and toppings provided a dinner-of-sorts as we wove in and out of aisles. Tory Burch and Milly frocks, sky-high Prada shoes, and Kiehl's counter were eye-candy. (We were good little college girls and the Hobo's stayed shut.) I sipped on a cranberry juice and Firefly vodka while MBK sampled THE spiciest margarita on planet earth--we blame the Tabasco. But props to Kathy G. event caterer!

Perusing the Hunter selection--chance of showers in London.

Spotted: Laura Kate, my sorority sister and mentor currently interning for event planner extrodinaire Kathy G. / Heather, another ADPi sister now show-stopping at Flower Magazine / The one and only Sloan, a Samford girl who's keeping me up to date on my past-internship world of Southern Living as a current intern / Amy Lemley Bailey, the founder of MyScoop in a precious gold skirt and rockin' tall boots / Holly Lollar, a public relations inspiration to so many of us in Birmingham.
