A¬†fashion house opening is always a great excuse to get your¬†girlfriends together.¬† When¬†I received my invite from Boston Common Magazine to the¬†grand re-opening of the Dior boutique in the Copley Mall, I immediately contacted three of my BF’s: Paulina, Di and Moesey.¬† The four of us together equal 2 blondes and 2 brunettes.¬† In other words a lot of fun!¬† We were down one blonde but still had a great time that turned into a wonderful girl’s night out that included champagne, fashion and¬†lots of¬†new and familiar faces.

The first question on my mind was what do I wear?¬† I confess I do not own a lot of Dior with the exception of some great aviators I picked up last year in NYC and an old knit top I bought years ago at Alan Bilzerian.¬† ¬†Was it a jeans type of event?¬† A summer dress?¬† After consulting with both Di and P, I decided to go the black pants (speaking of which try the black straight legs from Elie Tahari. . .yes you read correctly.¬† Get two pairs –¬†one in wool and the second in a linen¬†blend.¬† They are fierce and have become a summer staple for me.¬† Mo recommended them – Di has them too!) Now the top.¬† Do I bring out the knit top?¬† Is it cool and vintage or just old and out of season?¬† I went with a strapless cashmere sweater that I bought earlier this season at Louis.¬†¬†I was pleasantly surprised by all the women there and what they had on.¬† P sported a hip summer dress and Di a killer shirt and vest combo.¬† ¬†Of course the hostesses were all wearing Dior¬†and looked fab, but a lot of others were not and also looked fab.¬†¬†We gossiped, posed, browsed, tried on sunglasses and sipped champagne.¬† ¬†¬†A few mental notes – Dior has great coats and shoes for fall.¬†

Got to admit though, the best thing about the event and the night was seeing and spending time with the girls and meeting a few new friends. The laughter and stories filled the room, and what I thought was going to be an early night ended after midnight. 

Mental note Рtry that Dior top another night soon and when asked. . .its vintage.

Thanks for visiting Daily Cookie.  First, I think it’s really important to tell you that I am not trying to replace or mimic Daily Candy.  In fact,  I love Daily Candy and use the Boston and New York City versions on a daily basis.  They are both full of great information and have become a regular resource for me on many occasions. 

Daily Cookie is going to be what I think about, experience and how it effects both my personal and professional life.  My friends are going to be referenced and quoted constantly, as they too are a regular source of inspiration.  

I am an Event Producer and having been coordinating, managing and hosting celebrity, corporate and not for profit events now for 11 plus years.  Yikes!  Not giving away my age here. . .but you can probably figure it out.  What I have learned either by planning an event or going to countless ones I want to share with all of you.  

Why the name Daily Cookie?¬† This is one of my nicknames – not my favorite I have to confess, but one that has grown on me.¬† A few years back I went to visit the Mayor‚Äôs office with a long time friend and colleague, Becky, (aka the Force)¬†for an event I was co producing for another good friend, Soosie¬†(love the spelling huh).¬† The Mayor‚Äôs right hand lady came out and greeted us both with the names ‚ÄúForce‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúCookie‚ÄĚ.¬† Mine stuck.
