Team Zoe is One Man Down!

29 Sep

Major news, kids – effective October 1, Brad Goreski is leaving Team Zoe to branch out and do his own thing.  So far, the split appears to be amicable with Zoe reportedly saying, “He did this with such class and elegance. And I get it. I just told him, ‘I’m here for you always.'”

I like both Taylor and Brad for different reasons and losing such strong team members within the same year has got to be a bit overwhelming for Rachel Zoe.  It’s a good thing she’s got Rodger there to help keep the business running full steam ahead.   Hopefully, this loss won’t completely deter Rachel from seriously considering having a baby in the near future.

Kudos to Brad for seizing his 15 minutes of breakout reality star fame!

17 Sep

I’m not a huge Ellen DeGeneres fan, but her recent gifts to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are hilarious!  These accessories redefine oversized statement pieces.

How are you spending Fashion’s Night Out?

10 Sep

I am spending Fashion’s Night Out inside with QVC!  My favorite home shopping retailer is hosting a special FNO presentation from their brand new pop-up store in Rockefeller Plaza.  So far, they’ve shown new Fall fashions from the Kardashian sisters, Isaac Mizrahi and Mark Bouwer. I’m basically in love with everything they’ve presented thus far, but I’m especially fond of the handbags.  Here are some of my favorites.   These bags are making it really hard for me to stick to my “no new bags until I buy my Balenciaga Pompon” initiative.

Taylor Jacobson on life after Rachel Zoe, Inc.

14 Jul

I just came across a delightful Taylor Jacobson interview on the Cut.  It turns out she’s doing quite well with multiple projects including her own styling business, collaborating with a denim company and blogging and such.  I love Taylor.  Despite the drama that played out on The Rachel Zoe Project, it was always clear that Taylor was a dedicated, efficient, assertive team member.  So glad to hear that she’s doing well.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Starts in Two Days!

14 Jul

Mark your calendars, kids.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts at 7 a.m. EST on Friday.  I have combed through the preview catalog and the online extended version for anything that may need to join my Fall/Winter wardrobe.  There are lots of goodies, but my favorite is the Badgley Mischka satchel.  It may have a formal name but  “satchel” is all Nordstrom is giving us right now.  This structured delight is the best of the Proenza Schouler PS1 and the Mulberry Alexa in the most lovely shade of gray with a huge helping of gold hardware.  For the sale price of $298, this bag is basically the ultimate look for less and I love it!   Take a look at the full catalog online.
