I hope you all had a good time ringing in the new year. I had my traditional New Year’s/belated birthday celebration at Balthazar (check out a decade of New Year’s fashions here). I finally wore the Zang Toi dress that I first ogled in Zang’s September 2009 show. It’s a spring dress so I added black opaque tights to make it more winter-y. But taking a serious outfit photo was tough with my peeps. I think they’ve spent too much time on the This Is Photobomb website.
I like this kind of outfit photo! Forget about the fashion bloggers’ traditional pose with its pigeon-toed stance, coy glances away from the camera, pouting and artsy background. Here’s to more outfit-photo photobombers in 2011!
I did manage one photo without audience participation. I had to have one to show Zang.
What Wendy Wore:
Dress: Zang Toi from Spring 2010 collection
Shoes: Prada (2010)
Earrings: My own Cleopatra design
Rings: My own Gravity and onyx skull designs
Lip color: Lasting Lust by MAC
Hair: Styled by Julie Matos
Makeup: By Tennille at Kimara Ahnert
As always, Balthazar provided balloons …
… and plenty of party favors …
… employees who danced on the maitre’d stand …
… but this was the first time anyone wandered around with huge bags of confetti. We loved it! (When I got home and took my dress off, a handful of confetti fell out.) This photo sums up the evening:
Best wishes to all of you for a great 2011!
