I wore “homegrown” vintage when I went out with gorgeous blogger/designer Stacy Lomman on Monday. I got this polka-dot silk top at the Tahari store in New York’s World Financial Center between 1992 and 1995.
There was an Ann Taylor store near the Tahari store. I used to go into those two stores every couple of days and stare at the things I wanted while I waited for them to go on sale. It was like real-life Pinterest.
I hadn’t worn this shirt in several years, but I felt good in it this week, so once again I’m happy that I don’t follow closet-purging rules. Stacy was also wearing a little silk shirt, jeans and wedges, so we had a doorman at the Plaza Hotel take a picture of us in our matchy outfits.
We were having drinks at the Plaza because it’s across the street from an Apple store that’s open 24/7. I needed a new battery for my computer for weeks, but I didn’t want to face the crowds there during the day, and I felt too lazy to go at night. Finally, Stacy promised me that if I brought my computer in, we could have drinks at the Plaza. A good friend always knows how to motivate you! Now my computer doesn’t shut off whenever it becomes unplugged. The Spinning Beach Ball of Death is still bugging me though.
