I’ve dressed like a dollar bill. I’ve dressed like a brick wall. But I never dreamed of dressing like a quilt until I saw this vintage Dior dress while window-shopping on Shrimpton Couture’s website. If I had this dress, I’d need someone to change Family Guy’s “Guiltyyyyyyy” soundbite to “Quiltyyyyyyy.”

I always thought I was missing an old photo of the vintage Lillie Rubin dress that I wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Feb. 28. While looking for a different picture, I found it! This is from May 2006. I don’t know what event I wore it to that year. But I’m now […]

I still like clothes that have eyes in the boobular region. It’s all, “Hey, buddy, my eyes are up h … wait, no, they’re down there.” What can I say? I’m easily amused.

In 2012, I received two Chris Benz dresses that I’d ordered from a trunk show the previous fall. This was one and this was the other. I never loved the black dress. The sample fit great, but the final product didn’t live up to the original’s promise. Jean from Ghost Tailor improved it immensely, but […]

The humdrum fashion at Sunday’s Golden Globes — everyone wore red! silver! cut-out white gowns! — caused me to pay more and more attention to a Progresso Light commercial I kept seeing that night. In it, a woman is pleasantly surprised by the rich taste of her low-calorie soup. She’s watching her diet because she […]

It’s been almost two years to the day since I’ve seen a mind-blowing boob or butt bow, but 1stdibs.com came through for me once again with this vintage Bill Blass gown. If I owned this dress, I’d want to wear it one night and then wear my Guy Laroche butt-bow dress the following night. I’d […]

Last night, I went to my designing friend Zang Toi’s Spring 2015 runway show at Lincoln Center. The show was also a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Zang’s line. That’s a long run in fashion! You have to multiply fashion years the way you would dog years. Like, 25 years in fashion is at […]

My name is Wendy Brandes and I’m a Jean-Charles de Castelbajac-aholic. One of my first Castelbajac purchases was a Lego-print dress and matching shoes, which I got in 2009. I wear the shoes frequently, and I do the full, head-to-toe Lego look about once a year. I haven’t always photographed the combo, but I did […]
