Happy Holidays



One of the Pair of Nose-to-Nose Pianos (in one room)





)  Manligheter's Per Nilsson 

This year, the solo piano was paired with a bass (in another room).







Cabaret singer and jazz pianist Billy Stritch mesmerized the room when he so generously performed a song for us.







...Bob, Lee Roy, and Per graciously posed together.



May your holidays be as festive as these pants!

If only Elaine Stritch was at the party to accompany her fellow Stritchian at the keyboard for a knock out "I'm Still Here," the Sondheim anthem of those still at the table who attended boarding school during the heyday of Ivy.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night,

Richard

Muffy, I love the J. McLaughlin vest and what looks like J. McLaughlin black pants (from this entry). What did you wear on your feet?

Muffy Aldrich said...

@Anonymous - I wore my Eliza B. "Ascot" with the diamond monogram, pictured here in an earlier post. And as an aside, I am finding the pants to be very versatile and have a great fit.

Looks like a nice time was had by all, Those pants bring back memories My pop sold them in his store , wide whale and pincord, GT trouser co. Halrin slack and for the ladies David Brooks. We had santa , wreaths,candy canes and snowmen . though my favs were a pair I still have a fawn colored cord with embroidered pheasants.

I believe the trio of embroidered corduroy pants all came from Orvis. They may not have been offered for sale this year though.
