When I moved down to Orange County from LA three years ago, I held onto all of my cocktail dresses, dressy tops, and higher than high heels for a while, but after cleaning out my closet a few hundred times, those pieces have pretty much dwindled to nothing. I just don’t have much of a need for them here. “Hi! Here for the beach BBQ in my Parker dress and killer heels!” Nope, it just doesn’t work. For the rare occasions when I need something a little bit fancy, like last Sunday’s Oscars festivities, I’m super happy that I stumbled upon The Stylist LA and even more stoked that the owner Emily is a no-BS type of gal who knows exactly which of her dresses will work for me. It’s quick and painless, and I leave with something that I’ll love, even if it’s just for the night. And slowly but surely, that heel collection is really coming back strong. “But, I NEED these…” Again, don’t tell Eric. Happy weekend, pretty ladies – hope you spend it in style. Even if that means sweatpants style.
