Like a Boss

Episode 4:'s Associate Editor breaks down Brad's best pearls of wisdom.

This week's trip to Alabama had everything -- overalls, a large assortment of walkers, orange felt hats. (Yes, I just had a Stefon moment.) There was much to be learned about both Southern style and Brad's new assistant Lindsay, so let's dive right in to our fashion findings. 

You Could Be a Farmer in Those Clothes

Brad and Lindsay made a huge discovery during their travels -- Ye Olde General Store in Alabama is one of the best places on earth. It was kind of like stepping into the wardrobe and arriving in a Southern/Old West/farmer-esque Narnia. They tried on bonnets, a captain's hat, an acid wash trench coat, overalls, and on and on. The sheer joy of Brad and Lindsay's giant game of dress up was infectious. So when in Alabama, be sure to swing by this gem of a store so you too can own an orange felt hat.

Driven to Madness

Lindsay is not a good driver. There are really no two ways around this point. Brad learned this the hard way when they went shopping for office space. And quite frankly even I was scared as I watched Lindsay perilously make her way through the streets of LA, and I wasn't even in the car. I think this picture speaks for itself:


Luckily Brad wasn't shy about taking the wheel and banning her from driving the car. And we can only hope that for Lindsay's safety she's improved her skills since then.Like a Boss

Employer/employee relationships are always tricky to navigate. Brad's way of keeping Lindsay in line -- shame and fear. He totally had her thinking she was in deep trouble when she agreed to do that photo shoot. But he was just kidding! Kind of. And then they made up by stripping down and jumping in the water for a swim. (Doesn't look like that BBQ caught up with either of them.)

Beth Chose Function Over Fashion

Brad really didn't know which dress Beth Behrs was going to choose until the last minute.

Beth Behrs has been a client of mine since the Tony Awards this past June. We had such a great red carpet moment that night that we have been working together ever since.

I love Beth. She is very open to change, trying new things, and she trusts me 100%. Beth was attending the AmFar event in Los Angeles with the creator of the show she stars in "Two Broke Girls," so we wanted her to be sexy and sophisticated at the same time. At the end of the fitting, I usually know what a client is going to wear, but in this case, we had two very strong Armani options that were very different in feeling, but both appropriate for the occasion.

We had both of them prepared for her, and in the end she chose to wear the black velvet plunging neckline gown. This is a case where function over fashion won! We loved the strapless pearly grey architectural gown, but it was very restricting and would have been hard for her to sit in for the entire event. Some dresses are meant to be worn on the carpet only -- you take pictures and then get in your car and go home! It happens.

In the end she looked gorgeous, chic and sexy. Check!Getting a new house with Gary has been absolutely amazing! We have been talking about moving for about a year now, but I didn’t really ever think we would. First of all because we loved our old house so much, and secondly we couldn’t find a house that we liked enough to move into. Then we found THE ONE! We both knew this was it, and we put in an offer and bought it together. I also never thought I would be a homeowner either. I feel so grown up!

I wasn’t able to be at the move due to the fitting, but let me tell you, I was busy organizing, unpacking, and setting the house up. I cannot wait for you to see it! It's magical!
