Daily Outfit: 14th January 2010
Last night Chloe & I went to a bridal fashion show. After munching on miniature red velvet cupcakes & being saddled with excellent gift bags (which included every kind of shoe insole possible — I can totally use these — & Essie nailpolish, etc.), we decided to go somewhere & get a drink.
We stumbled out onto Madison Avenue, which smelt like burnt toast. I don’t know the area very well, but I remembered that the New York Palace was nearby. I stayed there in May 2008 & it was really the start of my New York love affair. Oh, how things have changed in less than two years!
After making our way along to the hotel, we took a couple of seats at Gilt & ate (me: grilled cheese sandwich with black truffles & french onion soup [aka The Gossip Grill], scotch + ginger ale; Chloe: dirty martini, oysters), before sneaking into the ballroom to take pictures…
It was big & fancy.
Black wool hat from Visage (I told you I was wearing it every day! I love it because it dresses everything down, which you need sometimes)
Violet ruffle dress bought at a strange shop on Broadway (I have really “had my money’s worth” of wear from this thing)
Studded belt from Forever 21
Black angora cardigan by Kimchi Blue
Black sequinned knit open cardigan by Forever 21
Black ribbed stockings
BCBG Mendel booties (mmmmmmmmph)
Betsey Johnson watch
Hello pony foot! Just call me Mr Ed!
Laughing at Gilt. Look at all the men in SUITS! Mr Works-On-Wall-Street over there is totally thinking, ‘Who is this nut?’ Meanwhile, I am eating a bread-stick & oblivious.
P.S. Gilt comes hiiiiighly recommended. I had never been there before, & even though we were obviously not the usual clientele & were only eating from the lowly bar menu, they were still really rad to us. They plied us with free drinks, didn’t charge me for my meal because it came out late, & served us caramel popcorn in a little silver dish. Word. Plus, it is really beautiful inside. Look! So cool. Last night, that plastic thing was lit up turquoise.
This photo makes me think of girls who put posters of boys they like on the wall. “Oh he’s so DREAMY!” Hahah!
All photos by Chloe, who I love. Expect many more collaborations from us in the near future!
