My gorgeous friend Tina the Occasional Cook had a Solid Gold-themed birthday party last night. Actually, as I’m writing this, she’s still having the party. I left just minutes ago while an enthusiastic karaoke rendition of Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” was still in progress. You know that song:
The perfect outfit for a Solid Gold birthday party was clearly a piece from Stacy Lomman‘s Spring 2011 “Precious Metals” collection. It’s tough to wear a dress that was last worn by a stunning 6’1″ runway model (who is also my friend and favorite makeup artist), but I’ll share the photos anyway.
What Wendy Wore
Dress: Stacy Lomman (spring 2011)
Pantyhose: Kate Middleton-worthy, worn due to cold snap/snowstorm
Shoes: Prada (2011)
Rings: My own designs
Lip color: Rebel by MAC
Hair: By superstar stylist Julie Matos
Makeup: By Tennille Nielsen
As you can see, hair guru Julie Matos wasn’t going to let me go out on Halloween weekend without something worthy of the holiday, even though Tina wasn’t exactly having a Halloween party. Hence the purple hair extension. Here’s a closer look.
The birthday girl was stunning in a gold sequin Vicky Tiel dress.
Speaking of Vicky Tiel, she has a new book out: It’s All About the Dress: What I Learned in 40 Years About Men, Women, Sex, and Fashion. I’ve only read a few excerpts so far but those have been highlarious and weirdly informative (now I know what Elizabeth Taylor ate for breakfast in the ’60s). Vicky will be doing a book signing at the Charles Nolan store on November 10. Tina and I will be there! So put it on your calendars if you’re going to be in New York City that day.
Thanks to Ken and Chad for hosting Tina’s big bash in their lovely apartment, and happy birthday, T-Wrexx!
