J’adore Dior

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 – try that Dior top another night soon and when asked. . .its vintage.

With the 70s and 80s back in style, I just loving vintage clothing from the thrift shops. You can find designers like Chanel and Armani for cheap there. Ebay is great too!
