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 CrushworthyMoms.com
