MrB almost always attends the annual Gerald Loeb Awards for business and financial journalism. He got the Loeb lifetime achievement award himlsef in 2002, and I don’t think a year’s gone by when someone hasn’t thanked him in an acceptance speech.
I often go to the Loebs with him to catch up with people I’ve known since my Dow Jones News Service/Wall Street Journal days. The 2019 Loebs were tonight and I wore a vintage Ossie Clark dress that I got in 2004, meaning it’s “double vintage” now.
What Wendy Wore
Dress: Vintage Ossie Clark with Celia Birtwell print (acquired in 2004)
Unseen shoes: Prada (2010)
Purse: Louis Vuitton (2016)
Alix, a journalism friend who got a Loeb award for editing in 2010, complimented the Ossie and asked if she had seen it before. I was pretty sure she had. When I came home and checked the blog I found out I was right! I wore the same dress (and shoes) to the Loebs just three years ago. I have to say that my posing game was much better that year.
Annoying seasonal allergies have drained me of my desire to twirl this week, and, in addition, I haven’t recovered from Tuesday’s 17-hour Election Day poll site shift in minimal air conditioning. I look at all these presidential candidates flitting here and there, right up until they hit the debate stage this week, then resuming their campaigning and I think …
How do they do all of this? Checking in 150 voters for a civil court judicial election wore me out!
Anyway, you can see me wearing the same dress-and-shoe combo in 2014 as well …
… and here are even earlier outings in the dress.
I think I got my money’s worth out of this one!
