Bob Mackie event at Screaming Mimi’s!

15385_10201597201314403_439086037_nLast Wednesday I was off to one of my favorite vintage shops, Screaming Mimi’s, to celebrate the launch of Bob Mackie’s new collection of notebooks hosted by my girl Sammy Davis of Sammydavisvintage.com. I was so excited to see the new line of Bob Mackie notebooks and try my luck in winning one of his vintage runway dresses that was displayed at the Screaming Mimi’s window! When I arrived I was bombarded by the smell of delicious cupcakes and the best scenery of the most beautiful vintage pieces. I was in pure heaven! Sammy did her thing spreading vintage love as we all munched on cupcakes over champagne. The Bob Mackie notebooks were gorg and reminded me so much of the Great Gatsby. They were displayed next to Bob’s sketches that I wanted to take home so bad lolol. I actually wanted to take everything home. Screaming Mimi’s is trouble for a vintage lover like myself. I had just visited the day before the event and bought a pair of springolators from them that were on major sale. I planned to have the sole restored but couldn’t wait and wore them for the event! I also wore my vintage Bob Mackie poodle brooch that was gifted to me at the showroom just a few days before. It was so perfect that I got to support both brands at once for this event. I went drenched in vintage in a 1950s brocade shirt dress, vintage hat and purse set, my leucite springolators, and vintage gems. It was the perfect outfit for the perfect event. I met so many wonderful people (one of them being Lynn Yaeger!) and got to see so many of my friends. Even better, I got to enjoy the whole event with my favorite person in the world, my mom!

IMG_7133My vintage brocade dress is from one of my favorite Manhattan Vintage vendors “What was is vintage” where I found this dress, 2 swimsuits, and 1 playsuit that are some of my most prized vintage pieces.c2The dress has beautiful neutral metallic colorway that made it so easy for me to accessorize. My vintage earrings match my vintage brooch which also matches my vintage hat and purse! Don’t you just love it when an outfit just works?

  1. I had such a great time at the event. Nice to meet so many wonderful people while having a great time.

  2. I got my first pair of springolators this year. Haven’t had a chance to wear them out yet. I love how they really do stick to your heel. I think modern shoe companies should do that for all backless shoes.
    You and your mom looked fabulous as usual.
