Style Week OC


Last Saturday I was invited to join my friend Lydia to spend the day at Style Week OC at Fashion Island, put on my the lovely ladies at SIMPLY. Our day began with a luncheon at Fig & Olive, one of my most favorite restaurants in Orange County to eat at. From the food the ambiance, I always leave them feeling like I need to unbutton the top button of my pants, hence why I always wear Spanx when I go, so at least I know I’m going to look good when they’re rolling me out after I try one of everything.


Before I knew it I was 3 glasses deep in Rose, had cat called some of the male models, and exchanged numbers with some amazing people sitting at the table with us. Clearly there’s no shame in my “game.” Lydia and I had the best time convincing Audrina Patridge, who let’s face it was the hottest cast member of The Hills once upon a time, that she needed to join Lydia on the Real Housewives of Orange County. So y’all, if she joins, I can say I was there when it all went down.

After Lydia’s beauty panel, we headed to BCBG for her in store event, complete with a DJ and some delicious cocktails. Many of the girls also joined in the fun, jumping in the on the photo booth fun, dancing around the store and catching up before dinner at Red O.


Thank you Fashion Island and Simply for hosting such a fun day, filled with great style and beauty tips.
