Tweet Twenty years ago today — April 8, 1994 — the body of 27-year-old Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was discovered in the greenhouse of his Seattle home. He had killed himself with a shotgun on April 5. April 8 was a Friday. I was working at the Wall Street Journal at the time, and my […]

Tweet The most exciting parts of last night’s Super Bowl for me were Joe Namath’s coin toss and Bruno Mars’s halftime show featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The game interested me less than usual — I wasn’t even sure that was possible — and I was underwhelmed by a lot of the ads. Radio […]

Tweet Today is my parents’ 48th wedding anniversary. BarbaraB and GeorgeB got married in 1965 at a place called Leonard’s on Long Island. It’s still there. After the wedding, my mother cut the sleeves off her wedding dress and wore it to someone else’s wedding. “It was a minor trend to wear white to weddings,” […]

Tweet Because I dressed to make Zang Toi happy on Sunday night, I figured it was only fair to dress in a way that would make MrB happy at our 12th-anniversary dinner on Monday.  After all, MrB puts up with a lot more from me than Zang has to. I know MrB is a big […]

Tweet Time flies when you’re having fun — and even when you’re not having fun! It’s my sixth blogversary today. To celebrate, I will be lazy: Instead of writing a big post here, allow me to direct you to my latest piece on the Huffington Post, featuring a fashion-blogger slideshow. For a while, I was […]

Tweet Twenty-six years ago today, I saw Duran Duran at Madison Square Garden. I saved the ticket stub in a scrapbook. I also saved two clippings about the after-party at the Cat Club because I was there. I went to the concert with a music critic from a New Jersey newspaper. She’d been invited to […]

Tweet Ten years ago today, an 18-month-old Gigi the dog joined our household.  Her backstory is literally kind of shitty so if you’re averse to scatological topics, skip this post. I found Gigi on Petfinder when I was looking for a young companion for my elderly Pekingese, Mr. Chubbs. She was advertised as a Pekingese, […]

Tweet MrB and I went to dinner for our 11th wedding anniversary on Sunday. I like theme dressing, so I considered wearing my Gemma Kahng leather vest with the big heart on the back. I’ve worn that for anniversary and Valentine’s Day dinners before. But I opted for a dress with a red-lip print instead. […]
