What To Wear – Shopping in Beverly Hills

March 20, 2013-

By Lauren

I am one who hates to look like a tourist wherever I am, unless it means I am overdressed. Call me insecure, but as a fashion person I pride myself on looking nice and like I know what the hell I am doing. So when I went to meet my old friend Luciane Sander, Manager of Christian Dior on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills (Very proud of Lucy for earning this position at such a young age), in simple terms, I didn’t want to look like a Midwest tourist, even if I was one.

While I’ve learned over-dressed anywhere in LA is not the way to go (despite what you see on television), I didn’t want to look under-dressed. To me this means nice jeans or black pants, a nice blouse, a nice purse  (this doesn’t mean expensive, it means well made.. ShoeDazzle has a great selection of $40 bags that look very nice) , clean accessories and a pair of over-sized sunglasses. In Beverly Hills I would also consider a nice sheath, but for me I had other places to go and did not want to be overdressed there.

And thanks to my new favorite blouse, I accomplished exactly what I wanted to … Short of walking out of Dior with that over-sized quilted bag I had my eye on…

Side note: The newly renovated Dior store on Rodeo Drive is beautiful with a friendly staff and is definitely worth a look around if you are in the area. I also had lunch at Villa Blanca (Thank you, Lucy) and it was a gorgeous restaurant with great food, so a hand for Lisa Vanderpump for running a great business.

    We just happen to be in LA when I got your post on my iphone about what to wear shopping and the “must see” Dior shop on Rodeo. My husband and I went into the Dior store yesterday and had a beautiful experience. The store itself is a work of art and is magnificent. The clothes, the handbags to die for…The staff were very friendly and eager to show us and explain the art that lines the walls, ceilings and floors. They even threw in a little french- Oui, oui, oui. I name dropped – “Lauren from a fashion blog Big Blonde HAir suggested we come visit”. All were very happy.
    Big “thank you” to you Lauren for all that you do for all of us out here.
    Warm Regards, Linda
