We're on day three of our six-day visit to NYC, and of course I am in my slice of heaven. Our little studio is perfect for us (tiny, but we like each other's company : >). And Sarah Jessica Parker lives just a few houses away! (But we haven't seen her yet; I doubt she lunches where we lunch).
Today's highlight was the Exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Technology. It's called "Fashion: A-Z". There are about 60 representative pieces "from Adrian to Zoran". If you can make it, I highly recommend this view of fabulous wardrobing.
My heart was pounding at an exquisite satin Christian Dior dress from 1954. No photography was allowed, but here's a small official pic:

A fabulous Pucci mini-dress was another standout, and a sculptural gown by Charles James left both my husband and me bewitched:

Followed by thrifting at some of my favorite stores, including Buffalo Exchange:
And Angel Street thrift (proceeds "benefit innovative programs for individuals and families affected by Substance Abuse, HIV/AIDS and Mental Illness."):
Hope you are all well, thrifty and fabulous.
