Reply to "Greer Lankton"

In the late 80's I used to live about a block away from Einsteins and I must say the store was incredible. You could see some of the best Greer dolls in the Einsteins window: Candy Darling, Divine, Peggy Moffitt, Diana Vreeland. Not only was the boutique full of vintage Chanel and Pucci, but Greer's husband, Paul Monroe, designed beautiful surreal jewelry. Bracelets made of pills, necklaces reflecting with hundreds of mirrors, tiny buckets of champagne on ice swinging from earrings. The first time I saw Greer in there, she looked exactly like Twiggy-except that she was wearing a black Chanel dress and pearls!The mix of characters parading in and out of the store was insane. Pyramid queens, strippers, east village wierdos, and eccentric older Bergdorf shoppers! One time Iggy Pop was in there at the same moment as an upper east side socialite was wondering which Schiaparelli brooch to buy. What a wild period of time, I wish somebody would do a book on them!
