If you're looking for the secret to Bethenny Frankel's sexy yet sophisticated style, you're in the right place because this fashionista does all her handy work online. Well, except for the occasional shopping trip with her hubby in Paris.
Juggling her business empire, being a mother, a wife, reality star and soon-to-be talk show hostess, it's pretty easy to see why she takes to the world wide web for most of her spending endeavors. That and the anxiety attacks, of course, "I exclusively shop online...You'll never see me in a store. It gives me such anxiety and I can't even believe what people have the gall to charge." We hear ya' sister.
She shared with us her go-to sites:
Shopstyle is really good. I go to Saks online, I go to Bergdorf's online. I don't really go to any of those flash sites because it feels like walking into a sample sale to buy stuff you don't even need when you don't even know what you're doing. And Net-a-porter on occasion if I'm feeing that I want to just pay full price, which is never, but very rarely...
As for designers? Bethenny did some high-end name-dropping.
I really like Michael Kors. If I'm going to go spend a little bit more on a really nice dress, it's those keepers, those sheath dresses that come in different colors and have a great fit—I have a couple of those in my closet that I love. The last time I went into Gucci I thought everything was great. For cute dresses I feel like Alice + Olivia has some good stuff, I feel like Theory has some good stuff. I'm not really like a label person. Actually, I love that Red Valentino label—I don't own anything but I love it. I also think Oscar de la Renta is good.
We think Oscar de la Renta is pretty darn "good" too!
