While I was agonizing over what to do with my nu shooz from L.A. (see the second update at the end of this post), I was reminded that I’ve been meaning to share a photo of a favorite pair of old shooz. These Patrick Cox shoes were my first pair of wedges. I think I got them in the mid ’90s. I don’t wear them that often, but a couple of times a year I take them out and show them off.
After reading this post, Miss Woo commented on my tiger-striped top, which is in reality a tiger-striped dress. I wear this dress to death but never seem to get a full-length picture of it. It’s a Clovis Ruffin I won on eBay. Originally it was floor length, but I gave it the chop. I meant to wear it with black tights in L.A., but when I got there I realized I’d packed leggings (not latex leggings) instead of tights. I tried it on to see how it would look and didn’t like it, but at least you can see the full dress in this picture.
On the last night of the trip, our fabulous friends Bruce and Michele took us to dinner at Dan Tana’s, which was a laugh and a half. Quite a few of our fellow diners looked like this guy. But meaner.
Somehow, I felt too shy to corral Michele and Bruce into taking a photo for the blog. Instead, Paul took one of me back at the hotel. I am wearing the Black Halo top I got in Miami. It gives me a Studio 54 vibe. I’m wearing it with my usual Acne jeans and Lagerfeld shoes I got at the 1994 going-out-of-business sale at the New York branch of Galeries Lafayette.
