What’s Up, Olivia: Lunch, Dress Fittings & Last-Minute Shopping

Olivia Kim, Director of Creative Projects at Nordstrom, makes her way to a fitting and lunch with Erdem in London before traveling on to New York City, where she did some last-minute shopping for the Met Gala tonight.

A beautiful day in London! We came out to East London to visit Erdem and his business partner Jen at their studio in Shoreditch.

erdem-4Trying on a bunch of dresses for the Met Ball! I feel like I’m playing dress-up in these gorgeous things.

erdem-2I love all these dresses—it’s so hard to choose! But I think we found one. Can’t wait to see Erdem again at the Met Ball!

A white-tie affair traditionally requires ladies to be dressed in gloves. So, last minute, I went to LaCrasia—a known resource for some of the most recognized celebrities (including Britney Spears, Prince, Janet Jackson and Shaquille O’Neal)!

Stay tuned for more from Olivia after she attends tonight’s Met Gala!

    Olivia, my daughter Olivia rocked her Jr. High graduation with the purple metallic dress. Alterations fit it perfectly to her body and she just looked smashing. Thanks! I’d love to put a picture in here, but don’t know how.
