Last week I was minding my own business when
I got this in the mail from Saks Fifth Avenue. [squealing]
Just a little invitation to a joint soiree celebrating the official zip code change of a certain shoe department to 10022-SHOE
as well as the upcoming release of The Women starring Meg Ryan, Eva Mendes and Debra Messing.
Shoe shopping plus a chick flick fest???
Signed, sealed, delivered - I'm yours, Saks!
With fond visions of Chanel party sugarplums dancing in my head
I invited my favorite West Coast fashionista Little Miss MBA for a few cocktails and a little shoe fondling.
And fondle we did. Our victims of choice? Christian Louboutins. Neither
of us owns a pair of those signature red soles. Shocking I know. (Btw, this problematic flamenco pair is NOT where we'll be starting our collection.)
We are thinking something more classic. Likely black with a platform and a toe peep. Maybe a slingback. Definitely not a flat. Perish the thought.
We were not the only ones fondling Mr. Louboutin's goods all night. So was Debra Messing. Me thinks she got a free pair for showing up.
Debi Mazar was also on hand. No doubt starting to promote the new season of Entourage. And getting her free swag on...
Cloris Leachman was also there. She stars in The Women too so it's not that random. At one point, she toddled over and told Little Miss MBA how adorable she looked!!!!
Now that was random. But I was pretty excited. Um, hello, she was on The Facts of Life - the ORIGINAL Gossip Girl ;)
Glittery night catching up with one of my favorite people on earth before she heads back to where our friendship started - grad school!!!
And while the goodie bag included no Chanel goodies this time
(I need these nail polish earrings!!!!)
At least part of it was black and white and edible :)
Chanel earrings and bag
Marc Jacobs Mary Janes
Fashion District zebra bangle
A for the outfit/C for the outfit at this event
Michael Kors Trompe-l'Oeil sweater I saw in Vogue a few months ago. $795.
I think it's adorable but wasn't the right choice for tonight. Should have gone more fitted. More summery. Younger.
Felt dowdy and F to the frumps in the sea of bare arms and cottons. Best Dressed Award goes to Little Miss MBA. Her dress is not Development, it's FOREVER 21!!! Wore it just for me. The sandals too. They are the exact ones I fondled a few weeks ago at Revolve.
Should have worn the gray Stella McCartney's tonight. They are much more fab than these little ole Mary Janes. Wah.
I think this older lady carrying my bag also shot my confidence early in the evening. I find that my bag is a favorite of the early bird set. Double wah.
At least I take comfort in the fact that I was wearing the same color as Debi Mazar and Little Miss MBA
And that the center piece of my dress was bold buttons down the front
Much like Debra Messing's.
And thankfully I left my pink and black feather hat at home. That would have been embarrassing...
Here is some more Saks party coverage on WireImage!
And a Gossip Girl getting her Chanel on at Saks in New York.
And speaking of New York, this is the party Jean Bean went to tonight. Got to meet her Madman crush, Jon Hamm. He told her she looked beautiful. DYING!
We'll never know just how beautiful SINCE SHE REFUSES TO TAKE PICTURES LIKE I ASK HER.
