Happy Rx // Five Minutes with Garance Dore

By Styleofsam @styleofsam
So I've ranted and raved about Garance Dore's visit in Dallas, and finally here is the post!  I really wanted to share because Garance is such an inspiration.  She is so genuinely nice... and honest, chic, charming, beautiful, and nice.  Did I mention nice?  NICE goes a long way in my book.  garance dore in dallas, garance dore aldo heelsIn case you couldn't tell, I'm completely smitten by her.  We had the chance to ask questions, and all that popped into my head was "               ".  Yes, absolutely nothing because I was a bit star struck!  I hate it when that happens because I turn into a smiling mute!

But I jotted down all the happy and jumbled thoughts I have in my head from her FIRST question and answer session at SMU.  Here are some quotes that stuck with me...

During her SECOND appearance at Neiman Marcus, there was a brief Q&A session followed by a fashion show.  Garance hand picked and styled all the outfits, and they were so chic!!  She labeled each model a 'personality' of New York i.e. Brooklyn gal, Soho chic, etc.  You can get a glimpse of their final looks - I snapped a quick pic of them with Garance.  By the way, that pink Jil Sander draped gown is TDF!!garance dore in dallas interviewgarance dore in dallas, garance dore interviewgarance dore in dallasAnd she remembered me from the FIRST appearance!  See, so nice!!  {Apparently, when I am really happy, my smile turns into a snarl.  What the heck?  Since when do I crinkle my nose when I'm smiling - apparently only when the lovely Garance Dore is around!!}
And leaving you with my favorite quote from Garance...Happy Rx // Five minutes with Garance DoreP.S.  Do you like my 'homage to Garance' in the first picture?!  I think she was a little concerned about the reason why I was taking pictures of her heels!Happy Rx // Five minutes with Garance Dore
