My parents had a box set of every episode of Pee-wee’s Playhouse. I became obsessed. I still wish my world looked like Pee-wee’s. I’m pretty sure that I’m lightly chasing Miss Yvonne’s look: skirts that come in at the waist, teased hair, the highest heels. I also have a pair of Kate Spade Saturday loafers that look suspiciously like Pee-wee’s, but fit for a lady living in NYC.
I hunt for accessories with a Playhouse vibe, like Buried Diamond brooches and necklaces. I have a deep love of googly eyes, but it’s hard to find a casual way to wear them every day. I’ve compromised by wearing the most graphic, patterned Gorman or Karen Walker sunglasses I can find. I love to wear something serious with something fun, and if I look like Miss Yvonne in the process, then that’s a plus.
