If you haven't tuned into Bravo's Odd Mom Out you are seriously missing out. Our friend Jill Kargman stars in and created the scripted series, which follows an Upper East Side mom as she takes on everything from the Hamptons to school admissions. It will have you laughing out loud (we promise!) and so will her newest collection of essays, Sprinkle Glitter On My Grave, which is out this month. We asked Jill to talk to us about personal style, her new book and her favorite UES spot as our latest Mover & Shaker. Check out her interview and shop her Veronica Beard picks below!

YOUR FAVORITE EPISODE OF ODD MOM OUT:
Hmmmm...I guess "The O.D.D. Couple" [Season 2, Episode 205] since it was so personal. Also "Brooklandia" from Season 1.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEW BOOK, SPRINKLE GLITTER ON MY GRAVE. HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM YOUR LAST COLLECTION OF ESSAYS?
It's sort of a companion piece to Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut because it's formatted the same way with lists and doodles and essays about New York and family; it's a dark comedy but anecdotal and a fun keyhole into Upper East Side life.

Woody Allen, Frances, McDormand, Eva Green, Tim Burton
