Our gorgeous friend Jolie Hunt invited me and MrB to the launch party for her marketing and communications firm, Hunt & Gather, earlier this week. (Is that a great company name, or what?) The event was on a former Navy ship named the Baylander, which was docked at Pier 5 in Brooklyn for the night. This gave us a beautiful view of downtown Manhattan.
I didn’t particularly care for those shoes with the dress, but I was running so late that I decided not to change them, especially because wedges are always a safety-conscious choice for boat parties. But one of the many arguments in favor of punctuality is “better shoe decisions.” I have to keep that in mind next time I am dawdling.
The only other photos I have of this dress are from 2006, when we went to a Cinema Society screening and party for the movie The Night Listener. I previously posted a photo from that night of me with wonderful actress Toni Collette, but here’s another for Throwback Thursday.
I don’t remember what made us so giggly, but I’m glad we had such a good time! It seems like I laughed like that all night, judging from this photo that was in the New York Sun. I think I would have laughed myself to death if I had seen Toni jump into the pool, fully dressed, later that night, but I must have wandered off to the beach at that point. The party was held at the Hamptons house of the legendary advertising executive Jerry Della Femina. He’s one of the inspirations for Mad Men.
MrB and I didn’t deliberately coordinate our outfits that night — it just happened, I swear. And look at the difference in my hair between the first photo with Toni and the second photo with Jerry. The humidity gave me a whole new look. One more style note: That dress takes a lot of Hollywood Fashion Tape to stay in place. Every time I wear it, I find tape on me for days after!
