What I wore– for cocktails and white tie.
For my friend Geoff's birthday party.
On the left: before I left the house.
On the right: at the party.
: a very mini halter dress by Babooshka Boutique
: a pleated tulle A-line skirt, acquired at Annie Sez back the day
: before I left the house, beautiful Adrienne Vittadini leather pumps
: at the party, little satin pumps acquired years ago…
: vintage silver-tone charm bracelet
: vintage silver-tone feather brooch.
The costume change occurred because the poufiness of the halter dress was not working with the line of the skirt. So I just tucked it in. And I changed my shoes because, as perfectly '40s as the Vittadinis are, my ankles are swollen from commuting, so they were not fitting well. C'est la vie.
