Columbia University’s School of Journalism includes the Knight-Bagehot program, which held its 35th annual gala fundraising dinner last night. Knight-Bagehot provides to qualified journalists a year-long fellowship in economics and business journalism. After a fellowship, the journalists know how to make a spreadsheet their bitch instead of vice versa. Take that, spreadsheets all over the world!
I dragged myself along to the dinner even though I was feeling strangely exhausted. I certainly didn’t have energy for getting dressed so I just found two black and white pieces and put them together. The outfit got several compliments so I was briefly energized.
What Wendy Wore
Coat: Vintage, possible Lillie Rubin (purchased between 1992 and 1995)
Dress: Versace (pre-2005)
Shoes: Prada (2010)
Bag: Louis Vuitton Alma in Epi (2001)
Ring: A new one that I’m not telling you about yet.
I took a photo with the coat off so you can see the nude insets around the armholes of the Versace dress. MrB took a blurry photo, but I was too tired for a re-do.
Came home, suddenly developed a slight fever and went to sleep at the shockingly early hour of 11 p.m. Now, naturally, I’m up at 3:30 a.m., wondering if I will be able to make it to all my important meetings this week. I’m also wondering if anything I just wrote made any sense. I assume that if it doesn’t make sense, you’ll tell me in the comments, preferably with a spreadsheet.
