Here’s a “What Wendy Wore” outfit for each month of 2014. Click the photos for the original posts.
I love vintage clothes, so I wore a Spring 1992 Versace dress to my New Year’s party. I last wore it to ring in the year 2008.
A few weeks ago, I discovered this little photo of me trying on the dress for the first time at Decades in Los Angeles in 2007.
A vintage dress that I wear more frequently is my bow-covered Patrick Kelly. This February, I wore it to the Columbia Daily Spectator’s annual fundraising dinner. Katie Couric was our special guest that night.
I wore a purple velvet Zang Toi gown to the Vanity Fair Oscar party in March. I took some good outfit photos of the dress, but I prefer this one, where MrB and I are sneaking by actress Paula Patton. (This photo clicks through to Getty Images, which now allows us to embed photos. Yay!) To see my original outfit post, click here.
In April, I wore one of my all-time favorite vintage dresses — my Patrick Kelly leopard gown — to the opening of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Patrick Kelly exhibit. On the way to Philly, we stopped at McDonalds.
This doesn’t exactly count as something I wore because I was just trying it on, but I’ve really come to love the ruffled Zang Toi gown I modeled in May in Zang’s showroom.
Okay, June’s photo of these denim overalls was just a try-on too, but the mullet hairdo is really mine!
I hadn’t worn this neon Versace dress in years, so I was excited to wear it in Greece this summer. My little dog friend, Irma, kept trying to nibble the hem. This dress has a history of attracting canines.
That New Year’s Eve Versace clearly inspired me to make a real effort to wear pieces that I hadn’t worn in a long time. I chose this vintage Marie France dress for a party in August with that in mind; I last wore it in 2006!
I always wear a Zang Toi dress to Zang’s fashion shows. In September, I wore a dress from his Spring 2010 collection.
I borrowed a top hat from my designing friend Stacy Lomman for a Halloween outfit, and I loved it so much …
… that I got a fancier top hat and wore it with a vintage Donald Brooks dress to the Committee to Protect Journalists annual dinner in November. Bonus fashion factoid: I wore the same dress to the same event in November 2004!
This month, I wore another vintage Donald Brooks dress to dinner at Narcissa. I first wore this dress in December 2008 after some major alterations were done.
I’m planning to wear another old dress for New Year’s Eve … what are you going to wear?
I love how you wear your dresses again! I always liked the idea of finding a great dress and wearing it time and again.
There was a dress I used to wear before Zeus was born, every Christmas morning. I thought you’d appreciate that I wore it this Christmas morning. The dress is over 20 years old and fits again, so I am really happy I kept it!
Happy New Year!
I’m so happy you kept that dress! And I’m so happy to read “Zeus” again — haven’t thought of that in a while! LOL!
Gorgeous girl, gorgeous outfits.
