Getting Hot and Heavy for a Cadillac

I’m a New Yawker, so the idea of driving is laughable. Dealing with Manhattan traffic? You can keep that. We have taxis and silver limos (subways) so owning a car seems like an unwanted expense. I know in other parts of the country (and the world) cars are essential, but for now, I’m fine hailing my temporary ride when needed.

I do recall an event that Francis and I attended to celebrate an anniversary for Cadillac and I fell in love. Truthfully, if I were to ever own a car, I would want a pink Cadillac, just like Elvis Presley, or a red hot one to match my lipstick any time of the day.

For this Manhattan affair, I wore a bamboo print dress from vintage-inspired modern retailer, which I paired with, yes, vintage peacock earrings.

And of course, you can’t forget the peacock earrings. has plenty of options.

This event may have been a while ago, but it feels like yesterday. As usual, the bestie Francis and I had a fabulous time. I’m still Cadillac free, but who knows what the future will bring for a dame like me!
