Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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.

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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, […]

Tweet Rolling Stone Keith Richards turns 69 today, thanks to an indomitable constitution that has survived everything from heroin to a mean coconut tree. His rock ‘n’ roll sartorial flair is intact too: when MrB and I saw the Stones on their 50th anniversary tour at Barclays Center on December 8, I was thrilled to […]

Tweet Sexy runway shows — and celebrity red-carpet choices — have convinced some people that every Versace design is scandalously flesh-baring, but, as I’ve written before, there are plenty of conservative options. I still have the sober Versace pantsuits I wore to work at Lehman Brothers between 2000 and 2005. I also have a knee-length […]

This one is titled “59 is the Age Women Should Stop Wearing Red Lipstick, Heavy Makeup, Study Finds.” According to Nuture Skincare‘s survey of 2,000 women age 45 and up, once you […]

Tweet Between Hurricane Sandy and work, I didn’t get around to making Halloween plans. I had a great costume in mind too. My favorite part about dressing up is the hair and makeup, so I’m definitely not going to stick a pair of cat ears on my head, draw on some eyeliner whiskers and call […]
