So, a number of you guys probably get the Saks catalog every month… but this month, I want you to pay extra-close attention to it!
When it comes in the mail, I want you to flip through all the pages, but when you get to the second to last page, stop…
BECAUSE THERE I AM!
I am so, so excited to show this to you guys — growing up outside NYC, Saks was a huge part of my life for basically my entire childhood (and adulthood)! My parents used to take us into the city around the holidays every year, and one of my earliest memories is being so obsessed with the perfume samples at Saks! Seriously, if you were cleaning out my childhood bedroom this weekend, you’d probably find a bunch of perfume samples tucked away in some hiding spot (sorry, mom), because they were literally, no joke, my most valuable possessions for many, many years. I still have a lot of trouble throwing away those perfume sample bottles when one of them comes my way!
And Saks stayed a huge part of my life as I grew up. It was where I bought my first designer handbag (the Miu Miu staple that I still carry today!), it was where I’d sneak to when I’d had a terrible week at work and needed a lunchtime pick-me-up, it was where I bought birthday and Christmas presents, the dress for my Rehearsal Dinner, the Chanel bag I’d been coveting since I was a teenager, and so many more. My first week in Houston, I was a little (a lot) lonely and didn’t know anyone, but I had a free afternoon one day and wanted to do some shopping — so where did I head? Saks, obviously! I had lunch in their restaurant, sipped a glass of wine, browsed some pretty clothing, and you know what? At the end of it, I felt a lot better. Sometimes that’s all it takes.
So I was so beyond thrilled when Saks asked me this summer to be in their September catalog! (And I’m especially honored to be alongside the incredibly gorgeous Aimee and Christina!) When you get it in the mail, be sure to take a peek for me!
And, if you’re looking to update your wardrobe for fall, Saks is giving away a pair of Vince fingerless gloves (perfect for using your iPhone when it’s freezing out!) this weekend with any $250 women’s contemporary purchase!
