I walked over and introduced myself to the host, Derek Warburton. He’s a tall, dark-haired bubbly celebrity stylist and fashion editor. He’s worked with Sean Paul, Beyonce and runs his own blog, Derek Loves Shopping. I asked Derek what to expect tonight. Would there be any grabbing of racks or fighting? He said, “Charlotte Russe is all about wow, not ow!”
Then I saw my mannequin; it actually had my name on it! It really hit me, I was going to be sprinting for clothing and accessories and shoes and they were spread out throughout the space. Thank god I had flip flops on – super comfy Havaianas ($18, havaianas.com) (Thank you, Caitlin!).
