Last week, designer Zang Toi invited me to a wonderful lunch and fashion show at his showroom. The guest of honor was … Jill Zarin, otherwise known as the redhead from The Real Housewives of New York. Seriously, y’all! Zang knows everyone from brides and grooms to Housewives.
I think other Housewives were there too, but I’ve never seen the show and don’t really know their faces. Anyway, Jill seemed to be the focus. She was working the room and talking up some healthy chocolate that she represents. I’m afraid I’m not going to be able to start eating that chocolate, however, because I already have an arduous schedule of Cadbury consumption. Sorry, Jill.
I managed to forget my camera. I know, right? Who goes to a fashion show without a camera? Luckily, my gorgeous, camera-carrying tablemate, Yilin Hsu, saved me from having to show you the craptastic photos I took with my phone. I asked Yilin to send me a photo — all I was hoping for was the one of her that I took with her camera, because I wanted you peeps to see her sex-ay Zang dress. But she went ahead and sent me a whole bunch of pictures: of the fashion show, Jill, Zang AND her sex-ay self. How nice is that?
Here is Yilin. See? Sex-ay!
Too bad I wasn’t wearing my Giant Butterfly Ring, because it would have been perfect for Yilin’s dress. It’s called a “Giant” Butterfly Ring because the butterfly part is 3″ at its widest point and 2 1/2″ high.

Anyway, here are some more photos from Yilin of Zang’s beautiful designs.
Thanks again to Yilin for the photos. Thanks also to Zang for inviting me to this superfun event. One unexpected dividend was that I met a gorgeous lady named Cecilia, who has such a fascinating life story that I am going to interview her for this blog. Stay tuned! Also stay tuned for another Zang event that I’m going to this week.
