Giant photos of famous former Plaza guests hung on the walls…(LOVE that shot of Frank Sinatra)
Ceiling chandelier the size of a small car greets you in the lobby
Sliders, oysters (and wine) from our dimly lit alcove
I pass this studio on my way home every time I leave Manhattan.
(Films shot here include Sex and The City and The Sopranos)
What I wore
Beaded cardigan: Vintage/Thrift. Leggings: American Apparel. Grey jumper: H&M: Shoes: Balenciaga. Fedora: Trash & Vaudeville. Bag <--- the usual
Last night, the boyfriend and me fancied eating out in the city and with no plans on where, we saw The Plaza hotel as we drove down 5th ave, looked at each other and thought ‘why not?’
We sat in their informal The Oak Room lounge and ate sliders and oysters (he had the latter) while we stared at the ornate ceilings, and life sized black and white photos of stars of music and screen who have stayed at the hotel.
I left the house in American Apparel winter leggings and a vintage cardigan. (It comes with a matching floor sweeping skirt that I’ll post another day).
ps. I’m reading the JC giveaway comments as they come in.
It’s cool to sort of ‘see’ a lot of you finally!
