So, as soon as I saw this dress featured in People Style Watch a few months back, I shared it with my friend and co-worker Erin. We locked eyes and said "YES". Erin is a seasoned veteran when it comes to braving designer collaboration debuts. She's seen it all from waiting hours on end and leaving empty handed, to damn near fist fighting to grab that coveted size 8. I knew I was in good hands when the day before she presented printed copies of the lookbook with color coded pens highlighting looks and sizes in order of priority.

After obsessing for a full four hours the night before, we headed out to brave the crowd at 630 am. We rolled up to a quiet parking lot and spotted another car with 3 girls staying warm, but clearly ready to run if necessary. When we walked up to the doors an hour before opening, we found only one couple having coffee, holding court, chatting, friendly, not agressive...

Cut to an hour later, the doors open, and Erin and I break into a sprint pulling ahead of the 7 other women waiting. A security guard tells us to stop running, but the adrenalin is too much- I try and remember Erins words "grab a 6,8, and 10 of everything on the list" "6,8,10" "6,8,10". GOT IT! It's over and done in 3 mins and we are hyperventilating and grinning at each other.

It was fun, and Peter Pilotto (though no one showed up) is an amazing designer that clearly thought out the design and fabric of each piece for this collection! We both got the pieces we wanted and now have a tiny slice of fashion history in our closets.
