rugby









Outfit Details:
pea coat, blouse, leather shorts, and bag - c/o Rugby Ralph Lauren
boots - Seychelles (old)
socks - HUE boot liners
tights - c/o HUE

Not too long ago, Rugby Ralph Lauren invited me to their downtown store to pick out an outfit, with the help of the best personal shopper ever, Chuck. It was by far one of my best shopping experiences for two reasons: one, very obviously, because I felt like Pretty Woman being able to try on everything in the store (only not a prostitute) and two, because Chuck was the most helpful and delightful person to work with. I asked him if he could always go shopping with me, since I'm horribly indecisive and he had my personal taste nailed.  It made the process so much easier. He said yes, but I wonder if he knew I wasn't kidding?

I also told the fine folks at Rugby that he should get a raise - all of the raises! I wonder if they knew I wasn't kidding?

  2. I always get wondrously lost in Rugby by RL stores. The blouse and the striped satchel are absolute gems. x
