I always grumble that New Years is my least favorite holiday, but this year I decided to pre-empt my new years ennui and throw a party. It’s a good excuse to see friends, make good food and get dressed up but not have to go anywhere. I even managed to convince my friends who live in Washington Heights, Bushwick and Greenpoint friends to come down to Sunset Park.
To celebrate the passing of the old year and the beginning of the new I wore an old, favorite dress: a sparkly, vintage number I bought at the Garment District in Boston in 2000 and wore to my senior prom! The shoes are brand new and by Robert Clergerie in Paris. They constitute my year end bonus from work. I first saw them on Fashion is a Playground and fell in love.
At some point during the evening we thought it would be a good idea to a photo shoot… on the kitchen floor. Ah, revelry! So here is wishing you all the very best for the new year! May it bring you happiness, health, adventure and joy!
And now, a little blast from the prom night past! Hilariously, my outfit 10 years later is almost the same: sparkly tights, high heeled Mary Janes, but not the pink wig or cats eye glasses. Enjoy!

I love both the shoes and the dress – and whatever tight/hosiery action you have going on. Looks sparkly!
I think I’m near to you? I’m up against Greenwood Cemetery in the 20’s.
Thanks! The tights are by Hue, a gift from my mom in my Xmas stocking. Yes, we are close! I am right by the actual sunset park… I am also a co-op member. I think a hang out should be in the works!
Totally! It’s funny but I mainly use Greenwood as as park so I’ve never *been* to Sunset Park. Either Greenwood or Prospect Park. How insane is that?
