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.....
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!
