Welcome to Let’s Get a Room, a series where editor Eliza Huber heads to the dressing room to try on pieces from your favorite retailers, buzzy items, and new collections. Think of this column as a detailed guide to the pieces that are actually worth buying and the ones that, unfortunately, looked better online—no returns necessary.
Tory Burch is at the top of her game, with collection after collection garnering rave reviews from the fashion community at large; an endless array of top influencers, from Emily Ratajkowski to Alix Earle, wearing her designs; and multiple viral items with her name on their labels. In other words, I’m not alone in my admiration for the New York–based designer, which is why her brand was the perfect choice for Let’s Get a Room’s first foray into the luxury space. I couldn’t help myself. After all, given how much time I spend in its multi-floor, home-like Mercer Street boutique for personal reasons (i.e., I can’t stop shopping the brand’s current spring/summer 2023 sale selection), a proper excuse became not just warranted but necessary.
That’s how I ended up taking over two dressing rooms on the third floor of the TB townhouse late one Tuesday night, sipping prosecco and Pellegrino while putting together outfits from the currently-on-display F/W 23 offering as well as holiday-ready dresses, handbags, and shoes. Simply put, I entered into heaven, one where there’s no such thing as too many gold accessories, Tory Burch’s pierced-toe heels aren’t almost sold out, and my entire wardrobe bears her name.
