Knife Pleats

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Isn’t it interesting how trends recycle?  Take this dress from the 50s.  It has these great knife pleats, which were on trend again for Spring this year.

The neckline and buttons on the dress make a necklace impossible, at least as far as I can see.  Instead, I’m wearing an awesome bangle from StyledLife, an ancient jeans belt from Ann Taylor (a place I don’t think I have set foot in in over 10 years), and my favorite Marni sandals, which I bought in NYC years ago during a weekend break for a trial in Connecticut.  I love a sturdy high heel.

A word about the location for today’s and yesterday’s photos.  As the photographer for both pics remarked today, “There’s a lot going on.”  And she wasn’t talking about the dress.  All I can say is never trust a lawyer with a clean office.  And a nod to an awesome French guy (is there any other kind of French guy?), Eric Ripert, who graces my PC in the background.
