Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet As if there had been any doubt, tonight’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala proved that the attendees of this event are very comfortable with “pretty.” Last year’s gala, which celebrated the opening of the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, should have inspired a lot of fun theme dressing, but with a few […]

Tweet I watched Game of Thrones Sunday night (OMG, right?!!) then switched to the MTV Movie Awards right on time to see Eminem and Rihanna perform “The Monster.” Having seen the only part of the awards I was interested in, I then turned the television off and went out for some non-poisonous wine. I definitely […]

Tweet Katy Perry wore a polka-dot-and-floral strapless gown on the red carpet at the American Music Awards. I got all excited, hoping she was wearing a 1980s Patrick Kelly … perhaps a ballgown version of the vintage dress currently available at Shrimpton Couture. Nope! Katy’s gown is actually from Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2014 […]
