I meant to take lots of photos at my pop-up shop yesterday, but I was too busy. Right before I closed, I remembered to take an outfit photo. The dress is a vintage Jacques Tiffeau. The shoes are by Yves Saint Laurent and are a few years old — the only YSLs that have ever fit me.  They have an elaborate gold heel, but I didn’t get a shot of that.  I’ll try to take one soon. The necklace was designed by me, of course! I’m not showing a close-up of it until the beautiful professional photos are done.

I was glad that hatch didn’t cave in under me because I didn’t have enough balloons to float to safety like the old man in Up.


I’ll be at the pop-up shop one more day — today (Saturday) from noon to 8 PM. If you’re in New York, come to 48 Greenwich Avenue near Perry Street and say hi! Depending on what time you come, we may have some Prosecco handy.

    I like the bright green of the dress! I would come to the pop up shop, but being on the other side of the country makes things a bit hard.

    How funny that my anti spam word is ‘holla@me’ which is what I’m going to do when I’m in NY in Jan. Will you do the pop up store again??

  5. sr@mystyle says:

    Thats a stunning vintage and looks gorgeous on you, I’ve not heard of this designer, another name to look out for!

  6. I’d LOVE to come to the pop-up shop! Darn not living in New York or having a superly massive income allowing me to nip back and forth regularly!

    You look so cute in that wee dress and balloons! I would have them as a fashion accessory more often.


  7. Wendy! Beautiful, beautiful dress. That’s such a hard color to wear, and you look amazing in it!

    I wish I could come! But it’s my friend’s birthday today, and yesterday I went to my school play and then the Met. You looked AWESOME. That dress is stellar! Once my sister, a friend and me (I?) were running down a street and my sister jumped on a hatch – while she was in mid-air it opened a wee bit, but she landed on it and closed it. We ran away very fast, praying nobody was hurt. It was simultaneously terrifiying, hilarious, and guilt/prayer-inducing.

    That dress is fabulous girl!

    @ The Shoe Girl – it depends on what you mean. Did you mean you wish you were there and left (in that case, was) or did you mean you wished to be there at that time (were). 🙂

    Former English Major. Finished all my comp classes. Led me to blog.

    But I love bags more. 😛
