What I Wore: The Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge is an amazing piece of architecture. It opened for business in May 1883, when President Chester Arthur crossed it. It’s considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Industrial World. And it can’t take a bad picture, that’s how photogenic it is. It’s a supermodel!


My outfit’s plain today: A thrifted knit dress and underlying cobalt tank. I am wearing the vintage bracelet Sandy bought for my birthday, in collusion with the wonderful Bella.

The dancing shoes are thrifted too.

I wrapped myself in a Brooklyn Bridge scarf, also a birthday gift, from my baby sister Kristie. She knows how I love NYC!

Thanks sister! We should walk the bridge together sometime.

Have a fun-filled weekend, and stay fabulous,

Visible Monday is on its “off” week this week, so we can recharge, refresh, and work on our tans (gasp!). ☺  We’ll be back on Monday, June 16th (actually, the Sunday evening before)!

  1. Hi Patti!

    About the bridge, it's true you can't take a bad image of the bridge – I loved it when i walked on it all the way to Brooklyn – That scarf is fantastic! Happy belated birthday Patti!



  2. Perfect ensemble for Brooklyn Bridge walking! You're looking more radiant than ever. You must be having a fabulous time.

  3. I've got 2 black shirt dresses. One is more easy, the other is tight. I love them both.
    But the first is more changeable.
    Never be to New York. I think, I have to go there. Have a good time. Sunny

  4. This dress is great, it shows off your beautiful figure. Nice with the cobalt. And as you kept it simple, it is a stage for that gorgeous bracelet.

  5. Your thrifting finds amaze me! You always look so great. I look forward to your posts.

  6. Its a gorgeous bridge, I'd love to see it for myself.
    You're looking stunning in that dress, the cobalt blue really looks good underneath it and the scarf is beauty! x

  7. New York is a long way from Tasmania, Australia – but it is on my list of places to visit…one day! I love your scarf and it works so well with your outfit.

  8. That scarf is all kinds of yum but then again, we all now my obsession with that color so it's no surprise it caught my fancy.
