Lisa Vanderpump is known for sporting her iconic shades of pink, but opted for a more understated look on Wednesday.

A little retail therapy to interrupt her busy work week, Lisa looked chic taking a break from her new West Hollywood bistro, Pump, to add to her enviable wardrobe.

The British-born entrepreneur belted her black button-down dress with a luxurious gold belt and added a touch of her favorite color in the form of a silky magenta camisole.
With a statement Chanel bag on her arm, she walked over to her white Rolls Royce suitcase for an elegant escape.
Although fully vaccinated, she followed CDC protocol of keeping her face protected with a black mask in the high-end department store.
Benefiting from several Los Angeles restaurants including Pump, SUR and the Tom Tom bar, Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd have had a rough year amid the pandemic like so many others.

All of their restaurants and staff have been hit hard, and she was only able to open Pump recently for weeks after settling a tax dispute that delayed the process. Lisa happily recounted that they served 1,200 people at their first weekend brunch on March 28.
SUR – which serves as the backdrop for the hit show Bravo Vanderpump Rules – reopened after the months shut down in September, but had to close again in November due to the LA County ban on all outdoor meals. They reopened safely in February.
Their eldest baby, Villa Blanca, closed its doors for good during the summer after their lease expired – the pandemic is only making things more difficult.
Lisa exclusively told UKTN.com: ‘If the landlord had been willing to renegotiate and the lease didn’t end we would have reopened, but unfortunately with the coronavirus the situation was out of our control. ”

Its Tom Tom bar – which has an outdoor space – is slated to open by May 1 due to new LA County regulations. Manager Richardson Cherry told The Sun they are ‘making big changes’ and ‘working around the clock’ to prepare him for his debut.
In addition to her hospitality activities, she has two new television programs; Overserved, where she invites celebrities to dinner al fresco at her gorgeous Villa Rosa and Pooch Perfect mansion, where she judges the dog grooming competition.
A die-hard animal rights activist who also owns Vanderpump Dogs in West Hollywood, she responded to critics this week who said the show was guilty of ‘dog abuse’.
Representing nothing from what goes on in her long list of animal philanthropy, she retweeted a message from the show’s groomer Loran Morgan who assured viewers the dogs were ‘treated like royalty’.
“ These dogs have had the time of their lives on this show. They were treated like royalty! I treated them like they were mine. And rest assured that @lisavanderpump would never put his name on a show that didn’t treat animals like royalty.
