Courtney Cox, Cougars and Clothes…Oh My!

courtney.jpegI don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved Courtney Cox. I remember the first time I saw her in a Bruce Springsteen music video and then I spent my 20’s and 30’s watching her on “Friends.” Well now I’ve come to find that Courtney and I have two things in common – we’re both cougars (my husband is a month younger than me) and we both love Old Navy. It’s almost as if we’re BFF’s. Okay – not really but I did stand thisclose to her once in L.A. when I attended the premiere party for a short film she directed and all I kept thinking was, ‘wow, it would be so cool to hang out with Courtney and her friends.’
Courtney recently hosted a special event at PINZ in Los Angeles sponsored by Old Navy Rock + EBowl in Los Angeles to benefit EBMRF, an organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness to EB, a rare genetic skin disorder that affects as many as 100,000 individuals nationwide. Old Navy set up a private gift shop for families to do some early holiday shopping and the stars went to town – Old Navy puffer vests, sparkly tutus, fuzzy animal slippers, pajama pants, scarves and techno hoodies (hoodies with ipod plugs) were some of the biggest hits of the day!

Meanwhile, back on the other side of the country, yours truly got to head to Old Navy with our second complimentary gift card and this time, while I thought I was going to be treating myself to some goodies, my daughter managed to finagle an entire winter wardrobe out of me – complete with down hooded jacket, long sleeve scratch and sniff t-shirts and several pairs of denim jeans including one pair of jeggings.
IMG_0814.jpgI did receive a pair of really cute cargo pants from Old Navy that are quite comfy but here’s hoping that next time around, I’ll be able to head to the women’s section and spend an hour shopping for me! First item on my wish list – a coat! Will let you know next month if I’m able to finally make it over to that section of the store.
