Remember that crazy Junya Watanabe jacket I tried on at Bergdorf Goodman earlier this week? I bought it, of course, and wore it to the Weinstein Company pre-Oscar party in Los Angeles last night. The event was fabulous! Tony Bennett was there and sang “Autumn Leaves” to the Weinstein brothers’ mother. And I spotted Meryl Streep, Katy Perry and Uggie the dog. The latter three didn’t arrive together (though Katy and Uggie had a moment later), but now I feel they should have, just because they’d be a strange trio. If anyone ever asks me that hoary interview question about my fantasy dinner party guests, I’m going to say, “Meryl Streep, Katy Perry and Uggie the dog.”
MrB and I cornered Harvey Weinstein to congratulate him on his movies’ 16 Oscar nominations. Then a proud MrB mentioned that I had won an award of my own. “It made me feel much better about things,” I confided to Harvey, the man with a zillion Oscars. I can’t remember his exact reply, but the gist of it was: “Um … YEAH!”

The day before I got the Watanabe jacket, I was working on this Zang Toi post. The Zang post referenced a 2008 post I did and that post included this photo of actress Lucy Liu wearing a ruffled pink something-or-other.
I’ve always wanted that pink ruffled thing. Another thing I’ve long coveted is my high-school friend Jim’s 1980s turquoise leather jacket.
I think if Lucy Liu’s pink ruffled thing and Jim’s turquoise motorcycle jacket mated, the baby might very well look like the cropped, ruffled, bright blue Watanabe. No wonder I was instantly attracted to it!
