Big glasses with Claiborne frames.
A signature—those big glasses. And the Liz Claiborne frames are hard to find. Once you get used to the big field of vision in those lenses you never go back to small ones. Mayo takes care of my eyes and I take care of those precious old, impossible-to-find-anymore frames.
Revlon's Eterna 27 Moisturizer Cream.
Eterna 27 was launched by Revlon in 1961 and I have been using it ever since. I use everything Revlon—like Certainly Red or Fire and Ice lipstick. Now I get Eterna 27 wherever I can find it—usually Hunt Drug. Available at Hunt Drug.
I started using fake eyelashes when I modeled and for television. The older I get, the thinner my eyelashes have become, so mascara doesn't work so well. My husband buys them for me at Kmart (only because they don't sell them at Fleet Farm). Available at a variety of drugstores and other major retailers.
Long-sleeved Joan Vass black turtleneck dresses.
I have always liked the professional look of black (it matches the piano!). I like the length, ease and comfort plus the fine cotton knit that washes and dries ready to wear. Plus you can do anything with those basic dresses—a fancy sequin or a fringed leather vest. A shawl. A tailored wool jacket. To say nothing about what a canvas it is to showcase jewelry. Available at www. neimanmarcus.com.
Weitzman high-heeled shoes.
I have always loved high-heeled shoes. My limit is 3-1/2 to 4 inches. Stuart Weitzman classic pumps are so beautifully made and they last forever. I am hard on shoes, so between Stuart Weitzman shoes and Rochester's Peter Chafos (make 'em new again, Pete) at Boston Shoe & Boot Repair (in Apache Mall), I am always well-shod. Or barefoot. Available at a variety of online retailers.
