dressing up again


For the first time in as long as I can remember, I dressed up last night. As in I put on a fancy frock and, gasp, heels! I even went east of the 405! The occasion: my friend's restaurant opening (it's called Issima, and you should run, not walk there!) I wore a JW Anderson dress that I bought right before Covid and had never worn. And I have to tell you I really enjoyed the feeling: the effort of dressing up, being out of my throw-on-and-go comfort zone, even my feet acclimating to heels. I'm actually excited about doing it more, and I don't think I'm alone in feeling this way either. My friends who joined me also turned up in their finest (like this). Over in Paris, where it's fashion week, women are also going for it (see above in vintage Prada). So now I'm inspired to go all out over the next few weeks, with birthday parties and other festivities back on my calendar. Some of the head-turning statements I'm eager to wear come from Cinq a Sept (on sale), MayleLNA, Oscar de la Renta (in my wildest dreams!), Opt, and Mango.
