Episode 6:'s Associate Editor wonders how those who never eat stain their clothes, and what male models should wear.

I can't let this blog go on even a minute without talking about Bentley. Oh, Bentley. You delight/terror. G-d bless you.

You came with two amazing gifts. A Just Cavalli dress I might give my life for and a Catherine Malandrino dress that wasn't too shabby either. However -- these items might have seen better days -- like big time, party days. Like covered in martini and wing stains days. I cannot stress enough how much I lost it when she mentioned that it was impossible for her to have stained the clothes because "she barely eats." Yet, when Karina offered her $66 for the dress, she knew exactly how many cocktails and wings it equaled. You're not fooling me Bentley. I know you wore that dress out to one wild night at Buffalo Wild Wings and dropped a boneless on the side. Take that jazz to the dry cleaner before you bring it in here, girl. Thankfully she did just that, and we all learned an important lesson about cleanliness -- it's next to costliness?

In less stained and tarnished clothing news, Tara and Wilson jaunted off to delicious male model River's closet to find some finds. And did they. Let's talk about Jeremy Scott.


Shut the f'n door with this sweatshirt. I would do so many sassy dances with this. I could choreograph an amazing fan video to Lady Gaga's "Telephone" in this sweatshirt. The thing about Jeremy Scott is that sure, anyone could make a sweatshirt that has big old telephone numbers on it -- but they don't. He's out there doing it. He's out there making things that are designed to be worn at delightful raves sound-tracked by Robyn music. It's just meant to make you smile. Just like. . .


I don't even like fitness and I would work out in this. I mean. . . .Put that on me and call me Reverend Fun DMC, because I am more Fun than Run. Run's House!

Next week there's more Just Cavalli drama and Wilson and Tara continue to duke it out. Here's hoping that jacket at least makes it into STA for all that huffing and puffing.

What about you guys? Which piece from this week's episode stole a piece of your heart?

We Are Family

Karina explains her escape from the store and how the STA staff has bonded.

The final episodes are upon us. . .and I had so much fun this entire season. There are several things I wanted to mention so I'll just start from the top. . .

The accordion purse -- when that came in the door I got extremely excited, having studied art history and the artist Eric De Kolb. Funny that Tara's voice was in my head when I was pricing the item. Haha! It's really a unique item and was so great that we found a happy buyer, who will be the talk of her next dinner party or event.

Going to Kelly's home was a real treat. She has a really good way about her, very warm and welcoming. Her taste is great, especially the Hermes pillows she had made. And I thought Ambria was going to pass out in the closet. Thankfully she donated some items for the auction, which was all for a great cause Generosity Water. . .And thanks to Peter Som and Alexa Ray Joel for their items. It was really very nice of everyone participate.

I have to note that Colin, with the Coco Chanel cuff, walks around NYC barefoot. He told me the Hopi Indians used to walk barefoot so they felt closer to earth and nature. Not sure how concrete and asphalt are the same as dirt and grass, but hey, to each his own. . .

Lastly, I just wanted to touch on Ambria and I's little escape from the store. When you work together for awhile, you sometimes do act like schoolkids and that was pretty much what happened when we "snuck" out of the store. But Tara is great, and I'm glad she was so forgiving. . .and also that she feels comfortable enough with me to discuss any personal issues. We have bcome somewhat of a family and Tara , Wilson, Ambria, and myself. We all look out for one another at this point. . .

My PS: That Elle magazine accessories vault was amazing.

My PSS: I'll be posting some personal pictures from the season on Twitter @KarinaLepiner and
