Welcome to Shopping With Vogue, a series in which we sift through a fashion lover’s favorite store. For this edition, we shop for accessories at Bergdorf Goodman with the former star of The Real Housewives of New York and now author of Make It Nice, Dorinda Medley, a.k.a @dorindamedley.?
Dorinda Medley doesn’t go to therapy; instead, she says, “I go to Bergdorfs.” Of course, she would say something like this. Those one-liners made Medley a breakout star on The Real Housewives of New York. Her biting wit made her the perfect character for the catty, Champagne-funneling franchise, which she was on for six seasons.
But Medley is different, clothingwise, from the rest of the cast. Don’t get her wrong, she likes those tight-fitting pieces from Ala?a and Hervé Leger as much as the rest of them, but she’s also known to wear traffic-stopping Missoni prints or a fully crocheted look by Ashish. Her outré style sense has helped her transcend the bitchy banter of the Housewives planet and become a cult-beloved fashion plate. For those who don’t know (Medley loves to tell people), she owned a cashmere company in London during the ’90s, and Princess Diana shopped there.
