I felt great in the Zang Toi jacket and faux-garter tights that I wore to Zang’s runway show in February 2014, so I wore that combination again to see Cabaret this January. There are black Castelbajac shorts under there too.
I love theme dressing, so I got out my Moschino heart dress for Valentine’s Day. I first wore this one in 2008.
In March, I visited my parents in Florida and found some striped wedges while I was there. I mean, I went to a store with my mother and found them. I didn’t find them at my parents’ house.
I was tempted to post another photo of the Zang Toi jacket and garter tights, because I wore that outfit again in April. But to keep things more interesting, here’s a Roland Mouret dress that I got in 2009.
I brought my vintage Moschino VIP dress to the big JCK jewelry trade show in Las Vegas at the end of May. I first wore this dress in 2011.
In June, Zang Toi dressed me from head to toe. Literally.
I tried a new pose in August, while wearing my 2013 Castelbajac dress.
This shedding feathered top was the bane of my wardrobe this year. I’m glad it made it to a Madonna concert in September. I threw it out recently. I hate not being able to keep things for years, but that top was evil.
My friend Julie Matos found this secondhand Catherine Malandrino dress for me this year. I wore it to an evening of jazz in October.
My friend Alyson Walsh had a book party in November. Her book is about style so I figured I better look sharp. Razor-blade sharp!
My friend Julie also found this secondhand Gucci tuxedo dress on the same day that I got the Malandrino dress above. I wore this one to a holiday party and was so pleased with it that I put it on Instagram right away. The next night, I was going out with friends and couldn’t figure out what to wear, so I put this dress on again. On the way to dinner I thought, “I hope no one in this group checks my Instagram.” Naturally, I get there and someone says, “Oh, that’s the dress you had on Instagram last night!”
Looking back at these, I have to say that get a lot of use out of that black patent Prada bag that I bought in 2007. It must be down to pennies per wear at this point. I also seem to be passionate about shorts, which amuses me, because I refused to wear them for most of my adult life. Then I broke down and got two pairs on a 103-degree day in the summer of 2010. “Never Is the Next New Thing™” applies to me too!
