If you’ve read my blog for a long time, you might be familiar with my Sex-ay Pilgrim Dress, but did you know I also have a Sex-ay Military Nurse Dress? The latter is khaki and past knee-length, but with a plunging neckline. I wore it to a dinner party on Saturday.
I got this dress at one of my favorite stores, Bergdorf Goodman. I remember feeling doubtful when I tried it on because it’s not “my” color and it wrinkles with a vengeance, but the more I looked at it in the dressing room, the more I liked it, due to the fit. And MrB liked it a LOT. Due to the fit. But the best thing about this dress is that I wore it when I humiliated myself in front of veteran newscaster Tom Brokaw in 2010 … for a second time.
How lucky am I? Most people don’t get to embarrass themselves in front of Tom Brokaw once!
I suspect the shoes I wore on Saturday are from Prada’s spring 2012 automobile-inspired collection because they have a sort of tail fin in the back. I feel like I’ve had them longer, but until I find photographic evidence, I’m going with the car collection. The ankle straps are attached to the shoes by little leather loops and somehow, before I even got to the restaurant, both the loops snapped! The shoes turned themselves into slides with leather ankle bracelets. Fortunately, they still looked fine and I’m all about the ankle bracelet lately. In fact, I gave my former publicist Eryn the first of my barbed-wire ankle bracelets as a going-away present when she started a new job last month.
Keep an eye on this blog and I’ll tell you when the barbed-wire ankle bracelets (or anklets, if you prefer) are available on my website. I’ll also be introducing my new publicist and right-hand woman, Megan, shortly!
