As the holiday season gets underway this weekend, here are a few insider tips on food, fashion and fabulous gifts. Over the past week, the Orange County the social crowd has turned out en masse for a dash of good cheer to get in the spirit.
First stop, Tiffany & Co., where store director Michael Botsko introduced local VIPs to exclusive Tiffany leather goods designers Richard Lambertson and John Truex. The distinguished and talented pair flew in from New York to do lunch at Marché Moderne with some of O.C.'s most fashionable women (and a few men, too).
In the crowd were Muriel Mitchell, Sandra Glain, Loretta Graham, Mary Adams, Bonnie Roadarmel, Monique Nguyen, Valaree Wahler and Pamela Paul. Also enjoying the luncheon event with tables set displaying crystal domed cake plates serving up the exquisite new Tiffany handbags were Karen Jones, Gladys Carey, Meg Hearn, Twyla Martin, Kristin Lasher and Alison McCormick — to name a few.
