Letter From Rachel Zoe: May 2014

Is it really May? The year is flying by and there are plenty of maj things to get excited about this month. As the days get longer, that’s your cue to delve deeper into your warm-weather wardrobe—think: short suits, printed blouses and gorj caftans!

What better excuse do you need to break out your Sunday best than for Mother’s Day? Now my favorite holiday of the year, I love having the chance to spend the day by the ocean with my boys in Malibu. Life doesn’t get any better than that! If you’re wondering what to surprise your mom with on her big day, stay tuned because we have a glam shopping guide in store. Of course, you can never go wrong with a special piece of jewelry or a bouquet of peonies, orchids or hydrangeas.

For those of you gearing up to toss or catch a bouquet: this month is all about you too! From bridal rules that are meant to be broken—think: a cool topknot over a low chignon or statement shoes vs. your basic strappy sandal—to the wear-again dresses you should stock your closet with, we’re here to make sure you feel like the best version of yourself during these important special occasions. Stuck on what to get the bride and groom? My team and I have a myriad of unbelievably chic ideas in store.

For my brides-to-be and wedding guests who have yet to lock down their attire, you might turn to the Met Gala for the ultimate fashion-forward inspiration. With White Tie and Decorations as the theme, I personally can’t wait to see who’s going to turn it out at one of the biggest fashion events of the year!

From Mother’s Day to wedding nuptials and graduation plans, May gives us many reasons to celebrate. But it is also a moment to look at the bigger picture and help mothers and children around the world who are in need. As an ambassador to Save The Children, I ask you to join me in donating to and spreading the word about the crucial cause, which is focused on saving lives of those who are at risk due to humanitarian crises, conflict and natural disasters.

Your support is appreciated more than words can express. All of my love until next month…!

XO, Rachel Zoe
