The handsome street-style blogger Craig of Altamira NYC was kind enough to arrange a bloggers’ get-together this evening. Be sure to keep an eye on his blog for photos. He took a few pictures of me standing on the street and after a shot or two, suggested I try a pose that looked a more “feminine.” This advice — coming so soon after my disastrous attempts to compose my face for Marie Claire, my evening of inflatable cheeks, and the fact that hairstylist-to-the-stars Keith Carpenter so despaired of getting a decent photo of me that he told me to go home and practice poses in the mirror — has convinced me that I am graceless enough to get a starring role on America’s Next Crap Model. Imagine the fun Jay Manual would have rolling his eyes at me. Tyra, I’m waiting by the phone.
I wore the Ossie Clark dress I won on eBay thanks to Sharon Rose, who pointed it out. This is currently my favorite Ossie. Thanks, Sharon Rose!
All the bloggers in attendance were so nice. I figure I should leave the full report and photography to Craig, but I can’t resist sharing a shot of iCiNG‘s Gala Darling.
And the beauteous Patricia of Bobble-Bee, who was sporting a fabulous hairdo, must be thanked for bringing me a gift from Spain.
I had to leave a little early to attend a friend’s elopement party, so I’m looking forward to hearing how the rest of the evening went.
UPDATED TO ADD: Here’s Craig’s link. I’m so impressed by Doshka’s jump!
Love the alluring dark-eyed beauty peeking over the Spanish fan…ah, it’s our WendyB!
Mama and I also keep our distance from Subway!
Sharon Rose says
Wow Wendy!!! I am so pleased you bought this dress-it obviously was so meant for only you!!
You look absolutely stunning and I agree, it’s one of my favourites on you!! Hope you had a good night-you were certainly belle of the ball in this dress!
the blogger meeting sounds like fun! And you look so cute in the last pic!
Oh Oh! I want that Grease t-shirt!!
Want to be in the City, so bad. There’s like a blogger celebrity circle that keeps happening/making me jealous.
vogued out!!! says
Oh the perks og blogging. You look great.
Everybody looks great! Boy Wendy, you are so great in all shapes. That dress is perfect for you!
Love the pictures on Altamira. What a great dress!
Thanks for coming Wendy! It was of course a pleasure to see you again and I like the “flirtatious” angle from which the photo of you peeking out from behind the fan was taken…
the iron chic says
You smile a lot in pictures and I never smile.
I remember being five and having my Dad tell me to smile for pictures.
They always end up looking forced and insincere- yours are very natural…
the likkle girl who wurves pwetty things says
Love them sleeves on your Ossie Clark!
You were right, Craig’s photo did loads more justice to you and your dress…looks like he did manage to get you to ‘work it’ more…sorry, Mr B.
Super Kawaii Mama says
That dress is stunning on you! And I love the red fan shot. Sounds like a great time was had by all at the Blogger get together. I really must get together with Gala, both being Melbourne girls and all.
Sharon Rose says
Hi Wendy-Just saw you on craigs link-the dress is divine, it really is! You look wonderful!
Jen (MahaloFashion) says
I love street style pictures, thank you for sharing!
The sleeves on your dress are FANTASTIC Wendy. Great photo!
Miss Woo says
You look fabuloso in Ossie as usual, and looks like you guys had a lot of fun!
your ossie clark dress look stunning on craig’s blog!!!
Sounds like so much fun! And no matter, I think you look terrific in that dress! But I do know how you feel… I may be one of the least photogenic people in history, especially when other people are behind the camera…
