In addition to doing about a million other things, Rachel Zoe is collaborating with Piperlime this season on a curated selection of holiday must-haves. And who better? Her well-documented love of all things glittery, gold, and glamourous makes her a bit of an expert on dressing for the season of sequins. In that spirit, we caught up with her at Piperlime's store in SoHo last night to subject her to a lightening round of holiday style questions. See what she had to say after the jump.
Hardest person to shop for?
My parents. I just got them two gifts from Hermes. It was not easy, let me tell you.
Sequin or no sequin?
Tights or bare legs?
Situation specific. If you're in a cold climate then yes, if you're in hot, then no. I also feel like it's a confidence thing. If you're more comfortable in them, then yes.
Yes or no: Gift for boss?
Yes. Something for their office.
One must-have trend piece this season?
Appropriate number of drinks at the office party?
How much gold is too much gold?
Situation specific. I would say it's never too much gold, but there is, in fact, too much gold. I've seen it.
