Giuseppe Zanotti : Houston Grand Opening

This week, I was honored to partner with my Giuseppe Zanotti family once again to host another grand opening. You may recall that earlier this year I feted the opening of the Dallas store as well as the expansion and re-opening of the Beverly Hills store. This time, we celebrated in my hometown as Giuseppe Zanotti opened his first store in Houston at the all-new, super posh River Oaks District.

Several hundred Houstonians joined the festivities. We were especially honored to have Houston socialite, philanthropist, and worldwide style icon Lynn Wyatt join us for the evening. Like me, she too has become personal friends with Giuseppe Zanotti and his team over the past few years. As she told me, “I’m here for Giuseppe. I just love him.” She looked absolutely stunning in her cobalt blue dress and leopard print Giuseppe Zanotti booties.

Side note: I highly recommend reading these five fabulous fashion experiences, as told by Lynn Wyatt to Vogue. My favorite is her style philosophy:

“Class with a bit of dash and never trash”

To commemorate the opening of the store, the Giuseppe Zanotti team will give back to the community with a donation to Recipe for Success. As a board member of this great organization dedicated to combating childhood obesity, I am personally grateful to my friends at Giuseppe Zanotti for the support.

Big congrats on the store opening, my friends! Best wishes for much success.

    Lynn Wyatt’s Vogue piece was very interesting. Especially the point about “Shopping is Discipline.” I couldn’t agree more.

    Thanks for sharing this!
