What I Wore: Space Agey


Dress with Faux-fur Trim: Luca Luca
Silk Sweater: Banana Republic
Bracelet: Van Cleef and Arpels
Tweed Bag: Chanel
Eel Boots: Devi Kroell

Today I had the wonderful privilege of meeting stunning blogger Nini, her friend Hanh, and Hanh's niece Pauline. I can't post any pictures of us because I prefer to keep my anonymity...but I have to say they're just as gorgeous in real life as they are on her blog and incredibly sweet. The salespeople and NYC natives kept gawking at them in all of their fabulousness--and yes, they braved the streets with their vertiginous heels! We had a wonderful lunch and then did some heavy-duty shopping, including visiting some more consignment stores: Resurrection and Ina were treasure troves of Alaia, Comme des Garcons, Ann Demeulemeester, and Chloe goodies. Their selection and prices were significantly better than the Upper East Side ones I visited last week--I'll have to make this a regular stop every time I'm in Soho. Be sure to visit Nini's blog to see just how fabulous she and her friends are!
