Because I dressed to make Zang Toi happy on Sunday night, I figured it was only fair to dress in a way that would make MrB happy at our 12th-anniversary dinner on Monday. After all, MrB puts up with a lot more from me than Zang has to.
I know MrB is a big fan of a khaki RM by Roland Mouret dress I got in 2009. In 2010, I wore it to embarrass myself in front of Tom Brokaw (for a second time!).
This week, I wore it to the Gramercy Tavern.
What Wendy Wore
Dress: RM by Roland Mouret (2009)
Shoes: Terry de Havilland (2013)
Purse: Louis Vuitton (2005)
Jewelry: All my own designs
The gold, snake-print shoes were a gift I got earlier this year from my friend Terry de Havilland, aka the “rock ‘n’ roll cobbler.” You can see the “spring-o-lator” insole in this photo. That bouncy inner helps keep the shoes on your feet.
I wore these out to another dinner earlier this month, and an alarmed friend was full of warnings about bunions and other foot damage. I was like, “Hunty, do you think I go JOGGING in these?” Each time I’ve worn them out, I’ve only walked about 30 steps. (I’ve also danced around the apartment in them when MrB is at work.) That said, de Havilland shoes are always surprisingly comfortable. As Terry told me when I met him last year, his awesome wife Liz would never let him make an uncomfortable shoe.
For my next de Havilland shoes, I’m holding out for a pair with customized soles, like this pair of men’s shoes Terry showed me.
Those would go well with my IDGAF necklace, don’t you agree?

Samantha V says
Yes, I so want to. I just have a problem with getting a good dog sitter, but I’m working on it! x

Really? MrB is a fan of your Amazing Bosom… I mean,this dress? What a shocking revelation!
Happy Anniversary to you and MrB and your AB.
Can’t believe you remember the Amazing Bosom!
MARLA ROBINSON says
that dress is stunning!
If only Anthony Weiner hadn’t forever ruined the concept/neologism of fuckme shoes! Terry should sue him.
I deliberately didn’t read all of the Weiner correspondence! Too gross.

Happy Anniversary to you and Mr. B. You look super chic Lady B.
Love the Everly Brothers!!! Heard them on Pandora just last week.
Thank you, lady! I need to see you soon 🙂
