Some of you know how close I am to the fashion world. And those people will know the extent of the gap! However, I do have some claims to fashion fame – starting with Barbara Tfank , who has become justly famous for dressing Michelle Obama very elegantly and now Adele. Last year I put out a call to the internet for her people to contact mine, but to no avail. Here is Barbara on YouTube, looking not that different from the tanned young woman with me in this not-recent photo. (I have no idea what we were talking about.) She was always more glamorous than I. Very likely many of our former mutual friends are not even alive any more, so we have both done well.
Coming back to the present… I want to introduce you to my friend and stylist KB, who was caught on the street in this great photo by Culture Serf, a blogger who is fun to follow. I would look SO ridiculous in those pants, which just proves that confidence is the key to fashion.
I am waiting for the opportunity to wear my mother’s black Persian lamb jacket from about 1960. I might borrow KB’s metallic jeggings. I’m not sure what shoes to wear, though. My daughters will run screaming into anonymity. My husband won’t notice. But maybe Culture Serf will find me!
