basalt sunday, august network party......

i was invited to a party at the new viceroy hotel in old snowmass. the view is fantastic and above the pool are the chair lifts leading you to the mountain. the party was for, 'the next food network star finalist susie jimenez'. she is a celebrity chef in aspen & is hysterical & so much fun. she was the one of the final 2 contestants so she threw a party, invited tons of people, cool cover band & while eating & drinking we watched the final episode to see if she becomes 'the next food network star'.

sadly, she didn't win but, hell, she came in second and is so camera friendly that i'm sure a show is around the corner. congratulations to susie for being so cool that she threw a party for coming in second! love that.

meanwhile, the invites said cocktail attire & here is what i spied. now, meanwhile, i was thinking about not going because i found out that morning that my 'insect bites' were not bites, but in fact some version of a poison plant allergic reaction so my legs were beyond hideous. so i opted for the new sea wool (oh lord, but it is cold in the mtns) overalls, thea grant charm necklace & a souchi sheer organic tee & fendi heels with a souchi beret. j'taime paris!

however, with the looks of the evening (ok, these aren't my favorite) but more discussing that wow, the question isn't how low can you go, but more how high can you go and how tight???? ladies, this is not meant to be mean, but more informative. imagination is the art of sexy & sultry & tight does not make you look skinnier.

mostly my disappoint in this younger crowd were the shoes. granted, admittedly i am a HUGE shoe snob, but i could not always splurge on expensive shoes & STILL i can't have all the shoes i want so i have to choose carefully. ladies, young & old, invest in a great heel, boot & flat sandal. that's it. these 3 will get you through.
