My, my—how time flies. Another season, the fourth, of Bravo's Rachel Zoe Project wound down last night with baby mania, lots of lactation and a Rachel Zoe Collection lookbook shoot. Oh, and everybody play shocked—Jeremiah came back! He did such a great job throwing money around buying white things for a too-big house that everyone just totally knew he'd kill it when asked to mock-up a branded shop-in-shop for Bloomingdale's. So, yeah, some rolling racks and two white chairs (that will certainly look great after 20 minutes in a high volume department store) and some jangly sconces later, everybody loves it and the Big Bloomingdale's Cheese decides to add eight Rachel Zoe shop-in-shops across the land.
To celebrate, Rachel and Rodger host a semi-catered cookout (with peonies in fish bowls and a thousand candles in various heights) for the whole crew. An emotional cry-and-thank-fest ensues; everybody loves everybody; Jeremiah gets hired back for good; whatever.
Oh, and the nanny's name is Rusty.
10.) Babies equal "Holy Life Change!"
9.) Brian Atwood likes the shoes from the Rachel Zoe Collection, which is "the ultimate blessing from the Shoe Gods."
8.) Rachel's Skyler-centric bedtime fairy tale included a prince who "loved Ralph Lauren and he loved Missoni and he loved Stella McCartney ?"
7.) And the Skyler lullaby: "Sky, Sky! French Fry!"
6.) Apparently Rachel's salami recipe (which looks pretty gross) is pretty major. In fact, it's "the crack of salami."
5.) "Rodger's lost his mind again if he thinks he's the one who's going to be styling my child ?"
4.) To the Bloomingdale's guy in reference to the Big Bloomingdale's Cheese on the shop-in-shop: "Please tell him to like it."
3.) To the Bloomingdale's Big Cheese once he decides on the Big Add: "I haven't met you but I die for you."
2.) How to be a working mom: "I think I figured it out. I'll just take Skyler everywhere."
1.) As such, in terms of outfits, "He needs options, I feel like I'm going to need options!"
