Adele has a new song out off her soon-to-be released album 25. The song is called “We Are Young.” Adele named her 2008 debut album 19, to reflect the age she was when she was writing it. Her 2011 album, 21, followed suit, title-wise. It was a monster hit: It topped the Billboard charts for […]

In yesterday’s post about this week’s Fleetwood Mac concert at Madison Square Garden, I mentioned that gorgeous Instagrammer Carrie Courogen was soooo front-row that she played Lindsey Buckingham’s guitar. Twice. Because I already posted the guitar picture, here’s a nice shot Carrie got of Stevie Nicks. The perfect halo of gold hair and lightning. A […]

This weekend, Run the Jewels performed in New York and I got to see them up close and personal thanks to my gorgeous rapper friend Gangsta Boo. Run the Jewels is a duo consisting of rappers El-P and Killer Mike, and Boo did a verse for the song “Love Again” on their critically acclaimed new […]

Several people have pointed this out to me: On September 19, the Washington Post’s PostEverything section had a rather depressing essay by Sonia Greenfield titled, “Being 40 has totally changed how I feel about how I look.” But even more of a downer than, “In my 40s, it seems like ‘inoffensive’ is what I should […]

Whenever my designing friend Zang Toi and I do a sale together, we end up buying each others’ wares. Yesterday, Zang bought my heart and bunny stud earrings for the ladies in his office. I tried on a jacket that I’d admired during the runway show for Zang’s Spring 2013 Bouquet D’Amour collection. It’s pinstriped […]

Recently, one of my blogger friends — I can’t remember who! Confess in the comments, if you like! — remarked that as inspiring as the wimmins of the Advanced Style blog are, many of them are over-the-top in a way that is intimidating to the less fashion-involved lady. I took another look at the blog […]

MrB keeps asking me, “Who’s your hero?” So far, he’s refrained from answering his own question by indicating himself with both thumbs and saying, “This guy!” That shows how nice he is because he is entitled to do the thumb thing after getting us tickets to attend watch-company G-Shock’s 30th anniversary party in New York […]

I posted an eye-catching vintage dress by Versace’s diffusion label, Versus, earlier this month. Gorgeous designer/blogger/stylist/neighbor/BFF Stacy Lomman took notice and paid me a visit with a big Versace book in hand. She thought she spotted the Versace season that was then re-interpreted by Versus. While I flipped through the book admiring the photos of […]

The late, great Nora Ephron wrote a book called I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman. In the title essay, she called the neck “a dead giveaway” when it comes to age: “Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood […]

Getting older is infinitely preferable to the alternative. Besides, I’m a late bloomer, so I am convinced the best is yet to come. That said, it’s strange to remember that my current age seemed ancient to me when I was a kid. Oh well, what did I know then? I was young and dumb, and […]
