Tonight I had the utmost pleasure of attending the most exclusive event, hosted at Neiman Marcus for the Cartier Cocktail Presentation and Preview of their most exclusive items of Cartier. However, I was appalled by many people’s fashionable choices [so to speak].

The event began with champagne that was flown out from Paris which was exclusively from Cartier’s wine cellar. Most of you wine geeks, may or may have not even heard of Cartier Champagne before but I must tell you that it is very good. From their exquisite champagne and hors d’oeuvres from Chef Matthew of Neiman Marcus Mariposa, I have to say the downside of my experience was fashion choices of the guest.

As a fashionista/socialite point-of-view, I was extremely disgusted. Guests wear either carrying faux designer bags to worst choices of clothing. I don’t know where these people came from but they weren’t from Seattle or Bellevue. Never in a million years, have I ever expected someone to wear a complete Juicy Couture jumpsuit to a Cartier Event or carrying a fake designer Bag… Dear Mr. Dior, the list can go on. My goodness, people in the Pacific Northwest absolutely have no sense of class. When invited to an “invitation-only” event, does not mean to dress in jeans or jackets circa 1960’s. I’m sorry but that’s the facts of life and high society.

I don’t see Tinsley Mortimer dressing like a homeless person to a NYFW after party nor do I see Michelle Obama in a nightgown attending the State dinner at the White House. This rule applies to everyone. If you know what event you are invited to, it doesn’t hurt to ask to see what the attire is. If you call yourself a fashionista, YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER!

For the rest of the crowd that dressed to impress, I have to say I was impressed. Many of the other guests were jealous. [ oh who really gives a shit? right?! ].

Oh and word of the wise: Those who purchased a Hermes Birkin or Kelly bag in the recent months… These are the type of events you should be carrying them. You shouldn’t be FLAUNTING them at Girls Night Out Events at Neiman Marcus but at these “invitation only” events. I’m sorry, if you don’t have a Birkin or Kelly… Wear your Chanel, Givenchy, Balenciaga, or Louis Vuitton bags. For God Sakes!!! They were showing you pieces that ranges from $200,000 to $800,000… That’s a fucking House for God’s Sakes!!!!
