Rachel & Co. in Paris. I should be in this picture. Sigh.
"Look. Black and White. Coco. Chanel. Everywhere. Ugh. Dying." - Rachel, passing the Chanel storewith Brad
"... And those diamante leggings? I hope they're a trend everywhere." - Brad, during the Ungaro show
"I think I'm going to pass out. I have on Coco Chanel's glasses." - Rachel wearing Chanel's original glasses as she stares at Brad
"I am obsessed with the Beatles. I did my senior thesis on John Lennon. And I. Literally. Die. for Paul McCartney." - Rachel seeing Paul at the Stella McCartney show
"And all of a sudden," she says at Stella's show, "out comes electric silver dresses and like nubby purple mohair jackets and chunky knits that I just want to put on my body. Right now."
"This is beyond. This is OOC. Out. Of. Control." - Rachel admiring an 800 euro vintage Dior leather trench coat on Brad
"Rachel gets a little aggressive when it comes down to your purchases. She's like a vintage designer couture pusher. Buy it Brad. Get it. (in high pitch voice: 'Cause then I can distract Roger when I buy my coat!')" - Brad, in response
“How about I give you a raise?” - Rachel asks Brad, so he can buy said Dior trench coat and absolve her of shopper's guilt
"Backstage at Galliano is like a cattle herd. Literally, I feel like a cow about to moo." - Rachel
“I would eat this shoe for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.” - Rachel drooling over 12-inch platforms backstage at Galliano
"Platforms are here to stay. Get yourself some stilts, girls." - Brad to the general public
Writer, wife, and mom to two baby girls. As of 2013 I'm no longer brunette (blond ambition!) nor on a budget. I love shoes, wine, Palm Springs, and Barry Gibb. As always, I'm still looking for my lost shaker of salt.
