I feel like I wore my gold, one-sleeved, vintage dress recently but, according to photo evidence, “recently” was seven years ago. Here I am in 2008 with my friend Melissa at the Committee to Protect Journalists awards dinner.
I got this dress at Allan & Suzi’s vintage/consignment store in 2004. I wore it to the Vanity Fair Oscar party that year. We weren’t too adept at taking outfit photos in those pre-blogging days.
I then wore it to an event in New York in 2005.
The dress has no label in it … nor does it have a lining. Allan was like, “Wear it as is!” AS IF! I’ve always worn a beige slip underneath it. I think it’s better to be photographed by Bill Cunningham of the New York Times without ones bits and pieces showing. Call me old-fashioned!
