We had a fabulous time Tuesday night at the book release party for Susan Redstone’s newly published fashion bible aptly titled “JUST TRY IT ON! A Month by Month Guide to Shopping and Style.” The soiree was held at the Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar in the style guru’s favourite department store in NYC, Henri Bendel, and the venue was packed and absolutely abuzz in celebration of her new book.
With years of experience in fashion journalism and as a stylist, and a self-declared thrifty shopper at heart, Susan has been a go-to style expert for fashion mags like Elle and In Style and has appeared on major network TV programs as a guest fashion commentator.
Her latest endeavour, “JUST TRY IT ON!” is a month-by-month shopping manual, revealing insider secrets on how to get your hands on amazing fashion finds, no matter what the season.
Susan was absolutely lovely and down-to-earth, and we were even able to share a few moments with her to chat and snap a couple of photos in Bendel’s lingerie section. Here are some juicy tidbits from our conversation:
Susan’s favourite store in NYC? Henri Bendel, of course!
What we should be stocking up on in January? Lingerie!…just in time for Valentine’s day
Her latest fashion find? The fabulous lavender Guess stilettos she had on, found for under $100!
Get your copy of “JUST TRY IT ON!” and with the help of the “Rachel Ray of fashion” herself, you’ll be shopping smarter and dressing better in no time.
