Mother’s Day: Violet Lepore Goes Shopping
In honor of Mother’s Day, we wanted to share with you what some of our followers are getting their mothers. Violet Lepore, 13-year-old daughter of designer Nanette Lepore, takes us shopping with her at BG. Here’s a glimpse of her day at BG and her top picks to gift her mother..
Since my mom is a designer, I always feel like I need to get her a really cool present. This Mother’s Day I decided to get her something really nice, so I took a trip to Bergdorf Goodman to find the perfect gift.
First, I stopped at my mom’s section on the 5F to check out some dresses for my graduation coming up in June. My favorite was this super cute blue dress with pink and yellow flowers on it — I’m planning on wearing it to an after party in the Hamptons.
I know that my mom is a huge supporter of Save the Garment Center, so I looked at some made in New York designers, like The Row. I thought that my mom would love this cool leather jacket (212 872 2592) to wear over an awesome dress when she goes out.
My mom loves accessories, especially scarves. I loved the tribal print on this one and the beaded fringe on the bottom (212 872 2604). I can picture my mom wearing this on a chilly summer night with one of her favorite long dresses.
As I was passing through the shoe section these crazy Prada shoes with flames on the heel caught my eye (212 872 8947). I had to stop and look at them. My mom loves shoes, no matter how wild they are, so I knew that she would wear these on a night that she was feeling bold.
The sunglasses section is a perfect place to look for a Mother’s Day gift. But, while I was shopping for my mom, I got a bit sidetracked and ended up picking out a pair that I liked. Oops! I found some gorgeous McQueen sunglasses with awesome little spikes on the sides.
I also was drawn to these martini glasses filled with Agraria bath salts and seashells (212 872 2570). They were so cute and colorful and smelled so nice! They would make a really cute gift.
I know that my mom loves coral so when I saw this gorgeous coral Meredith Frederick necklace (212 872 2518). I knew that she would be mad for it. If I won the lottery and could buy anything in the whole store, it would definitely be this!
