It has been a week for the books—a dinner party on Thursday (more to come on that), Alyssa’s 40th bash last night, a dinner party tonight at David’s and a cookie exchange tomorrow. So far the award for best shoes of the season goes to my friend Carrie, who walked into Alyssa’s last night looking so chic you could die. I couldn’t believe her shoes were from J. Crew. In person they look as if they should carry a tag at least twice the price. Carrie wore them with black tights (which was such a great look) and a glam little cocktail dress. Santa, baby?
