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 […]

MrB and I recently had dinner with friends at Ouest, a good restaurant on the Upper West Side. If you’re in New York City, I recommend that you check it out. It’s not too formal; you can definitely wear jeans. However, I dressed up a little bit, just because it was one of those days […]

I have a new obsession: collages of the same outfit in different years. I’ve always shown the outfit photos on my blog, but last month I decided to make some into collages and now I can’t stop! Here is my beloved Patrick Kelly leopard gown, from the late designer’s Fall/Winter 1989 collection, photographed in 2008, […]

Tom Ford’s kimono-inspired Spring/Summer 2003 collection for Gucci was so sex-ay! I always wanted one of the printed mini dresses. In case you’re looking for a gift for me, one of the dresses has turned up on 1stdibs.com. The cut-out back reminds me of back of the Fiorucci dress I loved so much in the […]

After I did yesterday’s post on “dresses through the years,” I did a collage of the oldest dress — a Versace — for Facebook. Here it is. Click to enlarge! That inspired me to do another collage for Throwback Thursday with an even older dress. This leopard-print Diane von Furstenberg has been on the blog […]
