“I actually got over a break up by shopping online, [it’s] healing retail therapy,” Alison Van Pelt said with a smile under a colonnade at the Chateau Marmont on Thursday afternoon. The Los Angeles artist, who’s currently giving Downtown L.A.’s Figueroa Hotel a painterly makeover was on the scene to celebrate C Magazine’s partnership with the online fashion outlet The Outnet. Guests included Mandana Dayani, Cher Coulter, George Kotsiopoulos, Laurie Trott, and more.

“We’re giving an all-new meaning to ladies who lunch,” said C Fashion Director Alison Edmond, who served as co-host with fashion plate and author Melissa Magsaysay.

“The Outnet is the number one used app on my phone; my cart is always full,” noted Magsaysay, dressed in a flowing Altuzarra kaftan. “I’ve been browsing the sandal section. Marni is a little more playful than I usually am. Alexander Wang is a little more directional than how I usually dress on an everyday basis, but shoe wise, when it’s on The Outnet that’s where I scoop up those things. It allows me to experiment more.”

Over a three-course lunch, The Outnet’s Priscilla Quaye explained the brand’s mission: “It’s that fun thing where if you miss something from last season there’s still a way to find it. If last fall you were coveting a certain shoe and now you think it’s gone forever it may show up on The Outnet. It’s creating that curated experience and finding things that you may have missed out on.”

And nobody knows that better than Coulter, a fan since the site’s launch in 2009. “It means I can buy designer clothes. I would be nervous to buy designer clothes because they’re so expensive,” says the celebrity stylist. “I feel like if you know what’s in fashion, it doesn’t matter if it’s this season or two seasons behind. It’s just, do you like it? Does it suit your body? Is it in fashion? It doesn’t need to be right now.”
