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!
You certainly got your money’s worth with this dress. But that’s the great thing about finding an amazing piece isn’t it? You can wear it time after time and still adore it.
I love Ossie dresses. Thanks for sharing your collection throughout your blog. X
The only stressful thing is trying to still fit in it! Luckily halter tops are forgiving because the boobs have definitely gotten bigger 😀
I would have loved that when I was 22, now I’m like fuck this.
