I hit the town for Fashion’s Night Out last night wearing my capitalism-promoting dollar dress and accompanied by hawt bloggers Jennine of The Coveted and Alyssa, Kathy and Vyque of Fasshonaburu.
We ran away from the teeming masses fighting to get into Bergdorf Goodman, wandered through Astroturf inside Prada’s 5th Avenue store, and wound up spending most of our time at Saks Fifth Avenue. While the Fasshonaburu girls stalked Ed Westwick of Gossip Girl, bought a leather kilt and located Jordana of Clutch 22, Jennine and I shared a brownie and fondled candy boxes at the chocolate bar.
Afterward, most of us dispersed, but Jennine and I headed to Bice for a drink. On our way, we passed the Tommy Hilfiger store and I had to stop in to see if they had the sex-ay over-the-knee duck boots I posted recently. They were all sold out of the blue-and-tan boots, but there was one display pair left of the all-blue boots. Luckily that pair was my size. I have absolutely no idea how I will style these boots. Maybe I will just keep wearing them with the dollar dress. It seemed to work tonight!
I think it’s time for the evening-dress-with-high-heeled-rain-boots look to sweep the nation … don’t you?
UPDATED TO ADD: There are a couple of sizes of the brown-and-blue duck boots available at the Tommy Hilfiger site. Hurry over there if you’re 37.5 or 38!
Of COURSE you found them. They were made for you!
Awwww AWESOME! I love them! You’re so lucky. I’d love to have been there. I was watching Fashion’s Night Out on QVC and dreaming about being there, so I was there in spirit! Enjoy your shoes! 🙂

You look like you had a hell of a lot of fun. I am expecting the press release of the designers that did my shirt to be in my inbox tomorrow.
OMG! you were at Bergdorf too?!!! Man How come I didn’t see your smiling fashion kick-ass self :)?!!!!
PS: I also just made a post about my crazy adventure, my fiance and I later went to get some drinks and cheap Japanese food to soothe the fashion over-load lol.
Wow, that dress is amazing. Those boots are pretty killer too.

Grit and Glamour says
FUN…and I love the boots! Looks like you guys had a blast.
Oulala ! Sexy legs, madame ! And I had no idea those boots did come in all blue, but they definitely work with your money dress.
As for other opportunities, I’m thinking tan leather shorts… that’s all I’ve got so far.
deja pseu says
Oh Wendy, those are so YOU. You could wear these with just about anything…they defy categorization.
miss cavendish says
Oh, how I love those boots! You are rockin’ them, girl!
those boots are amazing! you look great. 😀
you got them?! too funny and very amazing.
so jealous of those boots!!! – for some reason I get temped to see them with some kind of deep red satin jumpsuit with a wide (maybe black) belt…. or not a jumpsuit but maybe monochrome shorts with a matching blouse with poofy and bunched cap sleeves (princess type sleeves)… these boots make me think satirical french whore meets fireman fashion statement..like in a good way – can-can outfit?.. or vera wang safe plays like THIS: http://www.iheartluxe.com/luxe-feature/846
OR THIS? http://www.iheartluxe.com/luxe-feature/900
Then again, I’d never suggest ANYONE take styling advice from me.
Yes! Why don’t you *cut* costs and take your scissors to that dress! Time it was a mini!

Perhaps the boots could be named after you? The Brandes boots – sounds good eh?! Still can’t get over meeting Jane Birkin at FNO, London. Swoon.
darling i love those boots!!!!
happy sunday! glad you had a fun FNO
Beautifully Invisible says
It sounds like it was an unforgettable night! Love the dress, and I think the boots are perfect in the all blue!
You look HOT!!!
::squeal:: I’m so happy you bought those boots – they’re incredible and I’m excited to see the other ways you style them. However, and let’s be serious, I don’t think any other outfit can top that dollar dress!
Like combo with this boots and like your blog too!
Love the dress! Actually, i spotted you at IFB last week and wanted to compliment you on the dress you were wearing that day … but you were interviewing and didn’t want to disturb! Love those boots too 🙂
