I had the privilege of attending Rue Magazine's first anniversary party at H.D. Buttercup on Monday night.  I fell in love with the online publication back in October and always find myself waiting with anticipation for the next issue to come out!  Their anniversary issue is coming out soon, but you can check out a preview of it here

I had never been to H.D. Buttercup's showroom before, but it is amazing!  I wanted SO many things in there.  I was ready to back up the truck to my house, empty it out and then take it over to H.D. Buttercup to fill it back up!  Gorgeous and unique pieces!  Chandeliers, unique art and fun lamps are just the tip of the iceberg.  If you live in San Francisco or in Los Angeles, you should definitely check them out!

The Rue girls went all out at this party!  Not only was it in a fabulous setting, there were two delicious food trucks (I ate at Le Truc), creme puffs from Beard Papa, a photo booth and of course bars stocked with champers and cocktails. 

Happy Anniversary Rue!  Can't wait to see what the next year has in store for you!

P.S. Gilt City San Francisco just came out with a tastemaker program where Anne and Crystal are curating some of their favorite experiences in San Francisco (restaurants, wineries, boutiques, concerts, etc).  I already purchased the Dailey Method classes to help me kick off losing this baby weight!  If you are not a member of Gilt City San Francisco, sign up here to get your first purchase at 40% off of the already discounted price!  Happy Shopping!

P.S.S. I wore my Tsubo boots to the event and I have to report back that they were very comfortable.  I thought that after standing in them for over three hours, that my feet would be killing me, but they didn't hurt at all!
