My friend Jim Pensiero retired after 31 years at the Wall Street Journal, and there was a huge party for him tonight at Brasserie Ruhlmann in Rockefeller Center.
I belatedly realized that I should have worn the Lolita Lempicka suit and Lillie Rubin coat that I bought when I worked at the Journal from 1992 to 1995 (during which time I worked with Jim). Instead, I wore a top and skirt combo that dates back only 11 years.
What Wendy Wore
Top: Versace (2004)
Skirt: Versace (2004)
Boots: Jil Sander (probably 2004/2005)
Jacket: Stacy Lomman (2012)
Purse: Louis Vuitton (2001)
Alternatively, I could have worn my Wall Street Journal knit top. Sheesh. Usually I’m good about dressing for a theme. Anyway, in this post, you can see the same Versace kilt and top that I actually did wear tonight in 2004, 2012 and earlier this year.
Congrats, Jim! I don’t know how they’ll muddle on without you!
you look great! Possibly better than in 2004!
You’re delusional! 😛
