Being DVF: Meanwhile Taking Notes!!

Last time in Brooklyn, I went thrifting at People of 2morrow. I found a sweater coat that was a unique wool pattern. It was perfect for two reasons; the approaching low temperatures and—even more perfect— the Diane von Furstenberg label!

Former princess royalty and current fashion mogul—DVF is perfect. I've been a fan, ever since I saw the view of her flagship store from the High Line in the Chelsea Meatpacking District.

Last night was the premiere of E's new series House Of DVF. With today's reality shows, it's hard to tell what's real. DVF is trying to bring the truth back to 'reality' television. Who will be DVF's next Brand Ambassador? Secretly wanting to be on the show myself... I am loving the hard love that DVF hands to her pool of candidates. 

One of my favorite one-on-one meetings was with DVF and Kier. "Why does everyone think you're a bitch?” Kier replied, “I'm honest." DVF wisely retaliated with, “well, that doesn't make you a bitch.” 

Hopefully, it is easier to build character than to teach someone to do their job well. My prediction is that Kier will continue to grow as a DVF gal. 

Next week, the girls are making inspiration boards! I can't wait to see what they pull that translates into this season. 

First things first: the DVF girl represents the brand at all times.
