What Wendy Wore: Double-Vintage Ossie Clark

What Wendy Wore: Double-Vintage Ossie Clark

Wendy Brandes

On Tuesday, MrB and I attended the Awards for Excellence dinner for the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York. Dick Tofel, our friend and the president of ProPublica, was among the honorees. Four recent alumni were also recognized and I was absolutely blown away by their work: I urge you to read about that here. Good journalism still makes a difference! I wore a vintage Ossie Clark dress that I got from my friend Liz of Vintage-a-Peel in 2009. We were blogging friends first. Considering the dress was about 40 years old when I bought it, and that I've now owned it for 10 additional years, I hereby deem this "double vintage."

What Wendy Wore Dress: Vintage Ossie Clark (purchased in 2009) Boots: Prada (2008 or 2009, seen here) Purse: Prada (same year as the boots)

I accessorized it the exact same way when I wore it in 2016.

That purse has actually been accompanying the dress since 2010.

I still have those gold shoes from 2010. They're somewhat the worse for wear but if they're passable, I might dust them off and show them a good time when I next wear this dress.
