In case you were wondering where Patti Stanger, the Millionaire Matchmaker, recommends shopping for a first date, this interview has you covered. "I believe that you don't have to spend a lot. I'm a big fan of Forever21 and Arden B. If you're older you might like Cache. I love Marciano and ABS, and all of these are across the board affordable. But being a true fashionista, I'm a big fan of Phillip Lim and I live in Nanette Lepore for business. I am addicted to Black Halo. I also love Sheri Bodel, she's an up and coming designer here in LA and she's fabulous." [StyleCaster]
