Tough as Nails Themeless #40

I made this puzzle way back in July 2019, so it’s one of my earliest solo attempts at a themeless. I think my inexperience shows in a few of the shorter entries, but when I looked through the archives I decided this puzzle was better than I thought it was, and decided to trot it out for you all! Mostly to introduce more people to 3D. (Check out Judith Leiber after you’re done solving for some fanciful — and fantastically expensive — examples.)

  1. Definitely tough for me, with the tricky cluing and my having no idea about 7A, 16A, 17A, 55D. Especially loved 3D, 28D, and the SW Across stack. Thank you for a very enjoyable, verging on can-I-finish? workout.
