The morning before the Trevor Project Garden Party, I had a breakfast of champions with my favorites on the planet.
At the Sunset Tower Hotel, overlooking the pool and LA, my favorite place on the planet.
Afterward, we sent Mr. Diabolina on his merry way while my mom and I trekked a block down Sunset Blvd. To the Mondrian Hotel. For a tres hel-LA event.
There, in a gorgeous suite, we pawed through well-edited resale goodies at the Divorcee Sale, a bi-annual shopping event where divorcées sell their unwanted but mostly pristine clothing, shoes and handbags. It's not only a win for the divorcees and for resale hunters like me but it benefits a great lady-power cause: a quarter of the proceeds go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
I love the event's tag line: "Her Past. Your Future." Genius. The PYT next to me is the event's mastermind. Lovely lovely lovely businesswoman and a former Tory Burch employee.
Hence the incredible Tory pieces that most people have never seen before. Like this exquisite fur that was made for only one season. I didn't need it but boy did I want it.
Same story with this Vuitton yummy.
Fell for these Tory Burch cherries
This DVF maxi that I've wanted forever
This Tracy Reese with me written all over it.
And this Karta dress that I JUST found resale and bought a few months ago---jinx. Remember blogging about it way back in 2008.
Also on my brain forever: these Balenciagas. Blogged them back in January of 2010. They are space age vaginas on your feet. ADORE! My favorite find at the sale. Alas, a size too big.
So instead I got this Marc by MJ meets Little House on the Prarie top
This amazeballs, perfect for summer Tory Burch bag
And the cherries. I had to.
My mom also scored some Tory.
She wears it oh so well.
