But alas, everyone got married. Damn that cupid…such a workaholic.
Who knew adulthood would bring a whole new season of events; Fundraisers. They are like weddings: everyone dresses up and hires a babysitter for the night, there are 15 young boys in tuxedos who for a 10 spot will ensure you get first dibs on his tray of filet mignon on toast-points, there is a harried woman preying that the evenings events will flow as mellifluously as they have in her head. Plus, as an added bonus you can win stuff- I won a basket of Godiva Chocolate at an affair two weeks ago which I devoured in the car on the way home.
This past week I went to my second of four such fundraisers this season. This one was a wine tasting for the School for Language and Communication Development.
I snapped some photos of looks that caught my eye but as I said it was a wine tasting and boy did we taste. At one point I pulled a chair up to a venders table and downed samples of Malbec (my favorite wine) like they were shots. By the end of the night I was lucky I knew my name.
These were the standout looks of the affair.
I love this dress. Here in New York we rarely see color. Just black, black and more black. Regardless of you r activity for any given day, a pair of black pants with a black shirt and black shoes is totally appropriate. Hence the expression: Black is the new black. I was so happy to see green. Doesn’t this lady look adorable? And the dress itself is so glamorous, like she should be stepping on a subway grate a la Marilyn Monroe.
This ladies hat is just too cute. It makes her look like she just stepped out of one of your better vintage blogs but this woman was a teenager. Kudos to you for having such style so young. When I was your age I was wearing Keds and my boyfriend’s Champion sweatshirts inside out (I assure you it was the look).
And of course, my lovely date Suzanne. She always looks great though. I call this outfit her “Hot librarian” look. You know there is something freaky behind the demure neckline and below the knee length. Check out her Rock-and-Roller TODS bag too- It says I summer in the Hamptons but I party until they kick me out of the bar.
My lovely date and I.
