Tootsies will host famed blogger and new author Erin Gates for a book signing and wine and cheese event celebrating the launch of her new book, Elements of Style: Designing a Home and a Life. A mix of interior design, personal stories and fashion inspiration, Elements of Style: Designing a Home and a Life covers all the do's and don'ts of designing.

Gates' first book is a uniquely personal and practical decorating guide that shows how designing a home can be an outlet for personal expression and an exercise in self-discovery. Drawing on her 10 years of experience in the interior design industry, Gates combines honest design advice and gorgeous professional photographs and illustrations with personal essays about the lessons she's learned while designing her own home and her own life. Like a funny best friend, she reveals the disasters she's confronted in her own kitchen renovation, her struggles with anorexia, her epic fight with her husband over a Lucite table and her secrets for starting a successful blog.
