In case you missed it, here’s what was on the blog this week. I’m doing a big Jewels of the Month series: a 14-day Valentine’s Day/anti-Valentine’s Day countdown. I’ve got something for everyone, alternating between Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the lovebirds and anti-Valentine’s Day designs suitable for self-gifting. Valentine’s Day/Anti-Valentine’s Day Countdown: #1 of […]

Another Hollywood awards show has come and gone without a good candidate for my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award. Like the Critics’ Choice Awards earlier in the month, Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards had a lot of attractive red-carpet looks, but none that gave me that special “so wrong it’s right” feeling.

For instance, the striped Tracy Reese dress worn by Constance Zimmer of UnREAL is definitely one I’d gravitate to in a store. Embed from Getty Images But nothing […]

I was browsing 1980s vintage while watching the Golden Globes red carpet, and I had to point out this ruffled Pierre Cardin design to my designing friend Stacy Lomman. Stacy is the one who looked through my closet once and said, “Wow! Even your ruffles have ruffles!” I said, “Do you think this has enough […]

Television folks don’t do a red carpet the way the music industry does. After all the eye candy at the MTV Video Music Awards last month, the Emmys were a big letdown. I’m going to give my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award to Scandal‘s Kerry Washington, though her phresh out the runway, […]

Nicki Minaj isn’t the only one with a beef after Miley Cyrus’s MTV Video Music Awards hosting gig. When Miley ended Sunday’s show with a performance of her new song, “Dooo It!,” I got all excited about the costumes.

Video of the Year? Who cares! We all know that the most prestigious category at the MTV Video Music Awards is my Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo. The last time I gave out one of my coveted awards was in May for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala. Before that, I had […]

The MTV Video Music Awards are tonight, so I was inspired to dig these out. I went to the #vmas from 1999 through 2003.

This story is giving me LIFE, as the kids say today! On Sunday, Taylor Swift wore a white, cut-out jumpsuit to the Billboard Music Awards, and retailer Nasty Gal proudly claimed credit for it, as one does when a celebrity wears one’s designs.
