Our Guest – Peggy Reskin

Today we are welcoming my friend and fellow blogger, Peggy Reskin.  We have been friends for almost twenty years.  It is a delight to hear Peggy’s thoughts on dressing up for the Symphony…affinity

This picture was New Year’s Eve at the San Francisco Symphony.  Going to the Symphony is such a great place to go for splendid fun in choosing your attire!  The evening always begins with promenading through the long span around the huge oak bar and part of the fun is the open enjoyment by all, particularly the women, in acknowledging with a nod or a smile, glance or a word, each other in our elegant gowns from New York, Paris and Rome, or in my case downtown Oakland.

Somehow the enjoyment you have in this company of strangers enjoying each other’s presence is uniquely the Symphony ambiance, I have found in the past 10 years.  It’s a level playing field with the usual divisions: age, stage, place not central to the feeling these evenings consistently offer.

DRESS in Oakland on College Avenue is where I go when I have a Symphony or fancy event to attend.  The owner, a former buyer from New York, takes delight in having you find just what you want and there is a great deal to choose from-all good options.  This Red dress was comfortable and playful and fun-all night long; a lot of dancing is part of the evening with three or four different bands.  The necklace was a gift from my husband, and the shoes:  comfortable gold slip straps, that are 3 inches work!
Just having had my 70th birthday, I’m appreciative of the fact that there are no limits on what is good to wear. It’s how you live that is the measure of clothes to me….Peggy
