You Had Me at Amazing
Brad Goreski, you had me at hello. I was smitten, starstruck, and momentarily rendered speechless when I first met you ~ but you quickly put me at ease with your charm, straight up chic style and good looks.
I’m still pinching myself that I met @MrBradGoreski ~ favorite style stud and stylist, and an A+ on the A-List or Any List.
Thanks to the classy & colorful Brooks Brothers team in Georgetown who hosted a terrific event and book signing for Born To Be Brad at their fabulous M Street location. The book is amazing like its author and a fantastic literary mix of life & style à la Brad. It’s half memoir, half style-guide, and chock-full of heart & humor. A lust-have for anyone who loves fashion.

Appropriately clad in a hot pink cover, the book chronicles Brad’s colorful life thus far. It includes the beginning of his love affair with fashion at age 12 when he picked up his first Vogue, later working at Vogue and W, and his stint on Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, where he worked his style magic for a spell before movin’ on up with his career.

Fast-forward to the present ~ Brad is having a banner year. Highlights include wrapping his first season of It’s a Brad Brad World on Bravo (best season finale ever ~ kudos to Gary!) and being scooped up by Kate Spade as their brand ambassador. I’m smitten with their flipping fabulous collaboration and crazy-creative campaigns. He deserves every happiness and success that has come his way, and it couldn’t happen to a more authentic, talented guy.

Brad & Kate Spade ~ a match made in fashion heaven!
While I was sporting my pink & green and playing with my beloved Barbies as a little girl, there was a young boy named Brad in Port Perry, Ontario, with technicolor dreams who also loved the art of dress up. Little did I know that he would grow up to create a stylish & sunny world bursting with color, and become an inspiration for living a bright & sparkly life!
P.S ~ Brad, now that I’ve regained my ability to talk, tweet, and type ~ my offer to be Your Girl Friday still stands!
