I was sad to hear The Rachel Zoe Project is ending, yet I understand why too. I read ratings were down and it was focusing far too much on her personal life and getting away from the original intent of the show—allowing us regular folk a window into a wild world of fashion, styling, and egos, my God, the egos!
I have to say that since one of my pet areas of interest is Women in Business, it was interesting to watch in Season 4 as she juggled her marriage, her pregnancy, her styling business, and trying to get her label launched. All sorts of fun lessons if you were paying attention like you don’t sleep much, disaster lies around every corner, and multitasking is key!

I know Rachel drives a lot of people crazy but I like her, I can’t help it! I first saw her in a special feature of Mad Men as one of a few experts talking about the costumes of the show. She sounded so knowledgeable about the look of the early 60s I couldn’t help being impressed. And when I first read her book Style: A to Zoe, at a time in my life when I was a little depressed, it really lifted my spirits. I think it also planted the seed in my mind that yes, in fact, I could start a blog devoted to fashion. Why not?
All of this to say I could never resist her show and one thing I always loved about it was just her sheer enthusiasm for fashion.
I saw Rachel last year at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street, where I worked for the holidays. I snuck upstairs during my shift to see her, she was doing a trunk show to launch her jewelry line. She was very glamorous and so friendly to everyone who stood in line to meet her in person. I would’ve been one of them but my manager spotted me in the general crowd. Whoops! #embarrassing

Since I don’t have cable I’m a year behind on the show so if you saw Season 5 let me know what you thought of it.

There is a new article on Rachel in Capitol File magazine. Have a look if you get a chance! And Rachel’s new book Living in Style: Inspiration and Advice for Everyday Glamour comes out next March.
