New Yorkers love themselves a good costume party. When I get invited to one, I always wonder how seriously everyone will dress-up. What I've learned is that it's a range. Some people nail it from head to toe, others just add an accessory or two (fur seems to be the most popular choice no matter what the theme), and some people don't dress-up at all! Forever 21 is usually the best place to get everything. Or in Whitney's case (below left) her mom's closet is the best place. Interesting note, that's not her husband she's posing with. It's her husband's old roommate! Looks like someone was taking the Mad Men theme a little too seriously. haha
I tried sooo hard to find the right dress for this very Kennedy Christmas. I looked for hours, but I couldn't find the right thing. By the time I realized I wasn't going to find it, I was too far away from Forever 21 to save the day. So I wore some black and white things I have in my closet. Jackie O seemed to wear a lot of black and white. I was fine! See picture below.
The hostess, Carol, kept the theme going with 60's themed food, check it out here. Loved everything! Even the mystery meat! And Brigham (my old neighbor) kept the party moving with his amazing 3 phase playlist: "Christmas Music", "60's" and "21st Century Party Music". It's brilliant, check it out here. He also took this picture of Rob and me holding gum cigarettes. Great prop! No one in the history of the world was more giddy to hold a fake cigarette than me. I felt so cool in a really pathetic sad way. Ha.
Thanks Carol for inviting Rob and me. AND THANK YOU EMILY FOR BABYSITTING! (insert flashing font as soon as it's invented). We were out late! I felt so ashamed walking into the house at that hour of the night . . .
