We toasted her with Moet & Chandon Champagne at the Michele Varian shop in Soho.
The subtitle of Aly’s book is “The Grown-Up Guide to Looking Fabulous,” and the guests lived up to it! I loved Carol Markel’s colorful outfit from the top of her red hat to the pointy, purple tip of her toe.
Carol, an artist and a milliner, blogs at Femme et Fleur.
I was also enthralled with the dotted headpiece worn by Valerie, one of the bloggers at Idiosyncratic Fashionistas.
The motto on her oversize business card reads: “Setting a bad, bad example for older women everywhere.”
I wore my JC de Castelbajac dress with the razors/safety pin/brass knuckles/you-name-it embroidery.
Aly and I were both wearing silver shoes. The footwear didn’t make it into this photo of us together …
… so our shoes get their own picture!
Ha! I like the way this photo combo makes us look really long.
Style Forever will be a great holiday gift for the the 40s-and-up fashionistas in your life. Order now!
