{Street-Spotted} Marjorie Hirschhorn

“Putting together an outfit is like putting together a room,” says FOF Marjorie Hirschhorn, a retired interior designer. “You’re basically accessorizing yourself from a palette. Today my palette is bone and I’ve accessorized with jewelry—instead of pillows and lamps!” FOF caught her mid-lunch at Le Pain Quotidian on NYC’s Upper East Side where she was spending time with her husband, Robert, and daughter, Carolyn.

Name: Marjorie Hirschhorn

Age: Over 50

Where do you live now: The Upper East Side of Manhattan

Any passion projects? My husband and I collect American Folk Art. Particularly, we collect marquetry.

How do you describe your style? Very eclectic. I never wear one designer. I mix it up.

What’s your favorite item in your wardrobe? My favorite accessories are earrings and belts. My favorite belt is black, by Alberta Ferretti. It’s elastic, about three-and-a-half-inches wide and covered with round mother-of-pearl beads. It holds you in and makes an outfit. I lent it to a friend who got married on an island. She wore it with a white shirt and black pants, and it was magnificent.

What’s your favorite designer? Andrew Gn is my favorite!

What is your favorite store? I love Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. I also like walking up and down Madison Avenue, hopping in and out of boutiques buying a lot of accessories.

On Marjorie:
Bag: Balenciaga
Pants: Ralph Lauren.
Shirt: From Neiman Marcus.
Crystal with semi-precious stones including aquamarine and topaz.
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik.  “It’s really difficult to buy someone shoes, but my daughter got me these for my birthday. I liked them so much, that I got them in a couple of colors.”
Earrings: “I designed them myself at Alex’s Jewelery on Madison Avenue, they’re gold and diamond,” says Marjorie. “The inside is silver and the outside is gold. I noticed that everyone was wearing hoop earrings and I wanted some. I didn’t want them to be round because I have a thin face, but this oval gives you more length.
