Be a Bit Over the Top!

The 1970’s, along with all of its glamor and decadence, are a huge wellspring of creative inspiration for me. In fact, I’ve spent most of my life developing an appreciation for slightly over-the-top living, and so it shouldn’t surprise you that I dashed right out to see the limited engagement of Whitney Smith’s “Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston.” The film is as much about the time as it is about the rather inscrutable Halston (a characteristic that so many iconic figures seem to share), and I’m quite certain that if you, like me, love a dose of disco-era fabulousness, elegance, and excess, then this flick is for you. Oh, and if perhaps you’d like to revisit our 2009 thoughts on Halston to get you in the mood, you can find them here!

I’m celebrating the spirit of Halston and the 1970s with a slightly over the top ensemble—a spectacular shearling coat, ivory corduroy pants, tan leather tasseled loafers, brown plaid wool cashmere scarf and peccary gloves all Tom Ford era Gucci, Tom Ford “Nicolo” sunglasses, amber cashgora sweater and brown and white hounds tooth shirt, vintage agate cuff links, vintage Rolex oyster perpetual watch and my fragrance is the very seductive Creed Himalaya.

    WOW! You look great! If I were a client, I would definitely hire you just based on how you put yourself together, in the super intense fashion hothouse of NYC! Your post takes me back, all the way to 1976, when I went to NYC and stayed with a friend on Beekman Place, I fell in love with the city, and saw so many incredible places, such as Angelo Donghia’s townhouse, and a play off Broadway which featured the late Divine, called “Women Behind Bars” Oh! What a fab time we had! Love to love you baby! XXOO DF
