Only a few weeks after a Town & Country “Tried & True” writer raved about Leatherology and its goods made “of so supple leather” and “of the utmost highest quality,” the company hosted a Houston dinner at Bludorn for a stylish clutch which was headlined by Natalie Steen of The Nat Note.

The ladies schmoozed through the second floor party room of the popular restaurant sipping signature cocktails such as Bludorn’s Bramble, This Must Be The Place and Let’s Take Our Chances. The cleverly named cocktails set the stage for a meet and greet with Leatherology‘s Rae Liu, who founded the Dallas-based company with her brother David Liu in 2008. Houston is one of Leatherology’s biggest markets.

A variety of pieces from the Katy Saddle Collection were on display, products that have long been a fave of Steen, with Katy Saddle a label she has recommended in her popular fashion newsletter. Content of the newsletter, which boasts 71,000 Instagram followers, is curated from products that are unique and catch the blogger’s eye. On this night, Steen shared a host of fashion observations.

Beyond the brand’s pleasantly affordable price points, the personalization of the leather goods for both men and women was spotlighted. The ladies perused examples of Leatherology’s traditional debossing, brightly colored hand-painted monograms and quilted made-to-order trapunto initials.

Guests took their seats at one long table illuminated by lamps and adorned with flowers from Heyday Flower Co. As a special gift for attendees, each place setting had a Leatherology slim card case with the guest’s name personalized in debossed script.

When it was time to sit down for dinner, Bludorn did not disappoint. The first course was medley of baby lettuce, squash blossoms and octopus; entrees included grouper, New York strip, lobster and Bludorn’s infamous chicken pot pie. The restaurant’s signature baked Alaska closed out the meal.
