Memory Serves

Subtle red, white, and blue for Memorial Day. (Or, as subtle as it's possible to be when wearing a red, white, and blue maxi dress.) Plus some of that trippy zigzagging that often happens when you take pictures of thin stripes.




the other swag

Very full Memorial Day for me. We did a big breakfast at Crabby Amy's in Seaford. Snapped these shots outside a bank in Lynbrook. We watched the girls walk the parade (also in Lynbrook):


Then spent the day on appointments in Roslyn and Park Slope. Tried to go to Randazzo's in Sheepshead Bay but it was a two-hour wait. HAD to have seafood so went to Bigelow's in Rockville Centre instead.

Thought a lot about my grandpa, who just passed...

Even squeezed in some emergency laundry after I stained my dress. (The dress survived!)

  1. Black Tie Oleg Cassini cropped tux top from tag sale.
  2. American Apparel striped spaghetti tank maxi dress.
  3. Prada Minimal Baroque sunglasses from local seller on eBay.
  4. Red & turquoise beaded necklace from store in Houston.
  5. Coach Legacy Archival Two Tone Leather Willis in light sand/watermelon.
  6. Jessica Bennett zipper sandals, secondhand gift.
  7. Lanvin watch and bangles including Cartier and Kenneth Jay Lane from various estate sales.

  1. Still uber obsessed with that necklace! Sounds like you had a busy, but excellent, holiday!

  2. Haha, me, too, though it might officially be too freaking hot to wear it!
