This week’s episode of Million Dollar Shoppers was interesting to say the least. I met with client Jennifer Gilbert who is an event planner in NYC. If you had the chance to watch the episode, then you already understand my “interesting” experience. If not, feel free to take a look on Lifetime and learn about my after thoughts.
The first time I met Jennifer was actually the very first day of filming. I had no idea how the show was going to go and was nervous, but in an excited sort of way. I wore a DVF kimono blazer, Stella and Dot necklace with a leather Ted Baker pencil skirt.
I got this awesome kimono at a consignment store, it was half off and brand new!! Never underestimate the power of a good consignment store because it is not always “gently worn” clothes. My Stella and Dot necklace was gifted to me because they work with a lot of TV personalities and I am one of those now!:)
I traveled to Henri Bendels which is one of my favorite accessory stores. I wore another Stella and Dot necklace and my Magachoni white button down. I love this store. It is 3 levels of amazing pieces and is like a huge candy store for someone like me. It used to be a full department store, but then they realized there are crazy people like me who LOVE a paradise of accessories…
Holy good price for an amazing piece!
This leopard neck tie blouse is a purchase from Off 5th, the best designer discount store ever!!! It is the “leftovers” from Saks. I love a good neck tie blouse.
This Preen dress was absolutely amazing. The material was thick so it actually acts like Spanx when it is on sucking everything in, how fabulous!
This polka dot DVF blouse was also from the same consignment store the DVF kimono blazer is from AND I bought them on the same day. I walked in because I had time to kill and walked out with so much stuff I could barely carry it. I tried to only purchase a few things, but that is the thing about consignment, if you find amazing things you have to get them or you will never see them again!!!
Interviews are fun. You get to say everything you were thinking the entire time. It is like talking behind someone’s back, but they get to hear it. It is a very weird experience because they take place long after the actual filming and you have to talk in present tense. I am wearing an Alice and Olivia leather bomber and Michael Kors necklace. I am totally obsessed with the gold hardware on the bomber!!!
