If you have a Juicy velour track suit (or 30), raise your hand. Ok, you can let it go down now. Today The Wordy Girl hosted eight gal pals at Neiman Marcus Merrick Park to celebrate the new line, Skaist-Taylor, by the founders of Juicy Couture — Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash Taylor. You can only imagine my excitement when asked to do so because I’ve been a Juicy Couture freak since they rolled out their first yummy terry pant.
Anyhoo, Pam and Gela sold Juicy and have embarked on a new journey called Skaist-Taylor. The line is very much California girl-meets-highbrow-New-Yorker. My friends and I ate up the collection and took a particular liking to a fur-lined band boy jacket and custom python booties (which aren’t for sale but should be…HINT HINT, P&G!).
Not one to rest on their laurels, Gela says, “When we sold Juicy, it wasn’t over for us. We are fashion obsessed so this collection encompasses everything we love right now. Besides, I get to work with my best friend. It’s a dream!” Pam chimed in, “This collection is fun. We don’t want to be told what to do.”
The blonde besties chatted with the crowd and exuded a quintessential California vibe — down to Pam’s dip-dye blue-hair. Which now has me dreaming of finally dying my ends purple or pink. Should I do it, kids?
