I’ve decided that the vintage Kenneth Cole shoes I wore on Halloween deserve a close-up.
The spats-like shoes, combined with the top hat I wore that night, made me feel like Jiminy Cricket …
… or Mr. Peanut …
… or Scrooge McDuck. Here’s my head-to-toe Halloween look again, this time with more shoe than my previous post.
I liked this outfit. I feel like just wearing it around town, minus the heavy makeup.
The day after Halloween, I went to a dinner for my gorgeous friend Tina’s birthday at Butter Midtown. I stuck to the black-and-white look. On top, I wore the vintage Lillie Rubin coat I got between 1992 and 1995.
Here’s what was underneath.
What Wendy Wore for Tina’s Birthday Dinner
Sweater: Dsquared (2012)
Sequin Skirt: Patricia Field (2014)
Boots: Robert Clergerie, perhaps? (Pre-2005)
I’m great at putting together separates … as long as they’re black and white. Introduce another color and I need help, as proven yesterday. Of course, I caved in and got the butterscotch patent leather boots I admired at Louis Vuitton in September. I was excited to see that they perfectly matched a color in an old Roland Mouret skirt. All I needed was the right top, and black goes with everything, right? Grumpy Cat has the answer to that.
Next time, I think I need to choose a top from Grumpy Cat’s palette — ivory or brown.

Sweater: Alexander McQueen (pre-2005, previously seen here)
Skirt: Roland Mouret (pre-2005, previously seen here)
Boots: Louis Vuitton (2014)
Any other color ideas?
I still think we need to pull out the rusty/bronze color from that plaid or a darker brown… I forget what it looks like close up. But, I’m not feeling black and I think ivory/cream is the wrong way to go too 🙁 Just picture that outfit with a big blob of cream on top… am I right? Maybe some sort of oatmeal, melange fine gauge knit? This is our new mission.
Okay! I swear the boots matched a stripe in that skirt perfectly though.
I vote for a burgundy outfit of some sort. The boot color would also look good with a really dark green I think.
I like that you and Jacqueline both mention dark green! That must be the way to go!
Great minds think alike.

I think ivory could potentially work especially in the form of a romantic type of ruffled top – but I could also see a navy or forest green depending on the colors in the skirt. Is there another darker color that you could pull out?
