More photos from my husband’s surprise party have arrived! Click to enlarge.
Everyone was asking me where I got the Wall Street Journal top I was wearing that night, so here’s the story. About five years ago, we were having dinner with friends at Pastis when I noticed a woman wearing this top. I was extremely amused since this was obviously not a licensed product and I forced Paul to go over and say hi to her. She gave him the name of the Long Island boutique where she got it, and the next day I called and bought the last one.
I later wore it to a Wall Street Journal party, and a few of the WSJ women got quite excited. One enterprising journalist called the Long Island store, which told her that they were out of tops but could reorder from the Chinese factory if they got an order of at least a dozen. Someone put a sign-up sheet on the ladies’ room and everyone signed up and got their tops.
I was the only one who remembered to wear mine to the retirement party!
