Lis Vanderpump carries a gold Alexander McQueen Whipstitched Tote while scouting a new restaurant location in West Hollywood (5)

Before she was a Dancing With the Stars castmate or a two-time Bravo reality star, Lisa Vanderpump (along with her husband Ken Todd) was simply a humble restauranteur…successful enough to live in a palatial Beverly Hills mansion. Here are Lisa and Ken scouting a location for a new restaurant in West Hollywood. Lisa is carrying a metallic gold Alexander McQueen Whipstitch Tote and wearing the Christian Louboutin Figurina Boots. Both of these designer goodies are no longer available, but you can shop both Alexander McQueen and Christian Louboutin via Net-a-Porter.

Lisa’s second Bravo show, Vanderpump Rules, is about to start production on its second season – are you stoked? As far as I can tell, the popular consensus on this show amounts to: “MEH.” Thoughts?

    Is anyone else kind of shocked about the back of her blazer/jacket is not cut? It’s a huge pet peeve of mine and perhaps that is why I am noticing…just curious if anyone else was surprised!?!?!?

  • lori

    The sleeves should be shortened as well

  • kemilia

    Good catch on the blazer vent. I do love those boots, though not the bag.

    Honestly when I saw the vent I was flabbergasted – I mean really…

    Love Lisa and love the boots but the pants are not the right length for those boots either. And I will never understand her “shirt open to navel” look. She is a beautiful woman with no need to over advertise her “assets.”

    I noticed the flap right away as well and was shocked!
    Love the bag, I have it in a putty color!

  • Jen

    I don’t care for the bag. WAY too much going on.

  • jessica knowles

    Love Lisa V and I love the Bag too

  • Linda

    I was surprised by the vent too. Also sleeves are way too long. Poor fitting clothes in general. As for a second season, I was bored with the first so I won’t be watching. Can’t imagine eating at Sur either. The servers are so skanky.

    they must have styled her in the rolls. every woman of a certain age knows to cut the flap, alter the sleeves and the hem. but she is still my style icon. i recreated same outfit with a zara blazer, cabi tuxedo pants, cabi white shirt but paired it with a cabi fleather vest and j crew necklace, gucci gold bag and CL boots. got a ton of compliments
