Today - to kick off Halloween week - you get a headless horseman-slash-fashionista. That's like a brainless model-slash-actress ;)
Today was just a bad face day. Actually I think it's all the stress at work. Look haggard and worn down lately. Booooooo.
One year ago on October 31st I debuted this shoe/sweater/top combination. I had one of the most perfect days of my life in it. That's probably why I wore it today. As a talisman. To fortify me.
I was in New York with Sable Crow. We strolled around 30 Rock and Fifth Avenue. Lunched at Bergdorfs. Traipsed around Central Park.
Then that was followed by a night of obscene decadence. Courtesy of Jean Bean. At the Roberto Cavalli Halloween Masquerade. As Marie Antoinette.
No Halloween will ever be as grand. The empire has since fallen. We knew it was doomed to that night. So we partied like Victorian rock stars.
Today, one year later, the outfit made me feel like a pumpkin. Blah and boring and frumpy.
Not fabulous at all. Like one night last year on the roof at the Standard when I wore the top with leggings and Manolos and ruled L.A.
Funny how an outfit can be all about context. Who you are with and what you are doing can make all the difference. Sigh.
I feared the detailing on the neck of this top would get dated. But I just saw a Marc Jacobs top with similar studs. Phew ;)
