I’ve decided that the vintage Kenneth Cole shoes I wore on Halloween deserve a close-up.
The spats-like shoes, combined with the top hat I wore that night, made me feel like Jiminy Cricket …
… or Mr. Peanut …
I liked this outfit. I feel like just wearing it around town, minus the heavy makeup.
The day after Halloween, I went to a dinner for my gorgeous friend Tina’s birthday at Butter Midtown. I stuck to the black-and-white look. On top, I wore the vintage Lillie Rubin coat I got between 1992 and 1995.
Here’s what was underneath.
What Wendy Wore for Tina’s Birthday Dinner
Sweater: Dsquared (2012)
Sequin Skirt: Patricia Field (2014)
Boots: Robert Clergerie, perhaps? (Pre-2005)
I’m great at putting together separates … as long as they’re black and white. Introduce another color and I need help, as proven yesterday. Of course, I caved in and got the butterscotch patent leather boots I admired at Louis Vuitton in September. I was excited to see that they perfectly matched a color in an old Roland Mouret skirt. All I needed was the right top, and black goes with everything, right? Grumpy Cat has the answer to that.
Next time, I think I need to choose a top from Grumpy Cat’s palette — ivory or brown.
Any other color ideas?
