Tonight, MrB and I went to the Tribeca Film Festival cocktail party where I debuted my Patrick Kelly leopard-print dress to great acclaim back in 2008. There was no way to top that sartorial experience, so I wore a less-controversial flapper dress that I last wore in 2009. To be a little crazy, I skipped my usual red lipstick and went for major eye makeup instead.

Superstylist Julie Matos wasn’t available to beautify my hair, so I just left it a little wavy. I didn’t like the combo of wavy hair and neutral lipstick at all. It didn’t feel like me. Wavy hair + red lips = WendyB. Straight hair + neutral lips = WendyB. Wavy hair + neutral lips = Real Housewife.

On the plus side, we bumped into our gorgeous friends Norm and Jane and had an impromptu dinner with them at David Burke Kitchen. I highly recommend the salmon ham and eggs!
UPDATED TO ADD: MrB and I were wondering about an identical pair of ladies dressed like refugees from the ’80s that night. Questions answered!
