Barely made it through the day.
My reward: The September issue of Vogue in the mail and the season premiere of The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo. Fashion heaven.
Favorite part of tonight's show: when Brad deadpans, "We have to be very strategic the day of the Golden Globes. Which is hard because we're not very strategic people."
Always fun to go back and read what I thought of the styling of an awards show after I see the behind the scenes look on RZP. Cannot beeeeeeeeelieve Rachel asked Karl to alter a runway dress. And that he did it and then told her she had been right!!! Shows how much power Rachel wields at the highest levels of the fashion industry.
Ugh. I really played it all wrong when I met her at Cracked Xmas. I should have abandoned all sense of composure and thrown myself at her feet and begged for a job. I hear Brad emailed her every month for a year before he got an interview.

I swear I wasn't trying to CHAN(N)EL Taylor or Rachel today.
It just sorta worked out that way.
Wanted to debut the new jacket I picked up at Haute Seconds on Friday. Deliciously tweedy.
Very Chanel-esque with the print, colors, princess sleeves and pearl detailing.
Although it's actually St. John which is like the second best thing to Chanel.
It was on sale for $120 so I HAD to get it. St. John jackets retail for 10 times that. And Chanel jackets cost almost twice as much as St. John ones.
I've dreamed of owning a tweed Chanel jacket since I was a preteen. I know: I'm a problem.
They are just so French chic iconic.
You can dress them down for day.
Or up for evening.
You can even make them look edgy.
As evidenced by Balmain over the last few seasons.
Today I opted to get my Alexa Chung on
Which means pairing the jacket with skinny jeans
And hot shoes
Still think these cheapie booties will serve me well into Fall.
Though if these McQueen ones were to suddenly appear in my closet, don't be surprised ;)
