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 […]

Damn, girl! The day before hitting the stage with Coldplay at the Super Bowl, Beyonce released a surprise single and video called “Formation.” She outdid herself with this Hurricane-Katrina-referring tribute to black pride and black power. Here’s a tweet that sums it up nicely. She is the biggest star in the world, standing on a […]

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. […]

I’m quite proud of my habit of keeping pop-culture ephemera, such as this program from Madonna’s 1987 AIDS benefit concert and a Duran Duran ticket stub from the same year. However, my high-school friend Jim Begala wins the prize for keeping everything. Jim previously confirmed the exact date of a 1984 INXS concert for me, […]

There were lots of pretty looks at tonight’s Critics’ Choice Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. I kept thinking, “I’d wear that,” as I looked at the fashions. 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 […]

While searching for interesting David Bowie links, I realized I had to share the outrageous mid-1970s interviews from his Thin White Duke phase. Bowie had a horrendous cocaine addiction at the time. He was paranoid and obsessed with the occult, Charles Manson and Nazis. “I was hallucinating 24 hours a day,” he later said, noting […]

I can still barely believe it, but we all know it’s true. David Bowie died of cancer yesterday, two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his 25th studio album, Blackstar. His producer called Blackstar a “parting gift” for Bowie’s fans. Embed from Getty Images I haven’t been able to think of anything […]

No words. I’m shocked.

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 […]

While sitting in a waiting room early this month, I dug through the pile of old magazines until I found an October Rolling Stone with Keith Richards on the cover. Later that night, at a holiday party, I bumped into a friend of mine who is a longtime music journalist. We chatted about various musicians, […]
