My Rachel Zoe Moment

Yes, dear readers - last Thursday, I had my very own Rachel Zoe moment. Allow me to explain:

A very generous and fashionable lady - one of my mother's dearest friends and my best friend's mother - needed help putting together some outfits for an upcoming trip. She is very busy and - knowing how I LOVE to shop - she offered to pay me to pick out and purchase some items for her. We went over some existing outfits that she had and she gave me some ideas of what she wanted and then she sent me off! She told me not to worry about money (!) and we made a list of items she wanted. Can you believe it? Getting paid to shop?! I loved it! So, below are some of the items I purchased.... Now if only I could have purchased one of each for myself!


A gorgeous Stuart Weitzman clutch - kind of a pewter color with gold accents.


These fabulous Alexis Bittar earrings.....


.....and bracelet!

I proceeded to mecca (otherwise known as J. Crew) where I spent the majority of the moolah....


I am now officially obsessed with this necklace and will be purchasing it in the future. It looks fab with a classic white shirt.


The necklace and the white shirt go with a beautiful pair of brown pants she already has and can be worn with her Tory Burch Revas, shown below.... A cashmere cardigan draped over her shoulders would also be lovely.


Now, my favorite outfit and, yes, I did buy this one for myself as well.... I'm so weak.


Black cashmere cardigan - a must-have.....




I wasn't sure this dress would be cute but with the belt - so adorable and perfect for Fall. Imagine it with my black and gold Tory Burch flats..... Ah, lovely!

Anyway, that was my shopping extravaganza! I have made it very clear to this lady that I ready, willing, and able to be her personal shopper any time she needs me! If I am every lucky enough to have another Rachel Zoe moment, I will share with you again!

Shopping is always so much fun, even if it isn't for yourself. I always tell my friends that I love spending their money!

You can go shopping for me anytime you want but money will be an object! WOW - you are fabulous. Maybe that can be your new career. You can practice on me. HA! I really need some new clothes. Bought a few the other day since it's been awhile due to Evie.
