Back from Palm Beach!
Just back from some R&R in Palm Beach where I stayed with our friends Jaye, an artist, and Perry, a former publisher and broadcaster.
Perry, the grand-nephew of the great financier and friend of Franklin Roosevelt, Bernard Baruch, has been coming to PB for over seventy years. As a teenager with a beautiful society mother, Amalia, and a Rolls-Royce, Perry was wined and dined by all the debutantes and their mothers. As he said: “If you were a guy, had a tuxedo and you knew how to dance, you were in.” Perry is still very much a ladies man, debonair, charming, and very complimentary — a true gentleman.
Me, I hightailed it to the beach to soak up the rays, listen to the ocean and just BE. I did visit the famous Worth Avenue –- think NY Madison Avenue, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive – where, on a beautiful Saturday afternoon I the height of “the season” – the stores were empty. More fallout from the Madoff Ponzi scheme. He certainly cut a wide swath through PB. The good news bargains abound, and Perry, who loves to shop with women and has a good eye for fashion – convinced me to buy a “nouveau” flapper dress at BCBG – just in time for my friend, Donna’s, son’s wedding next week.
