Tweet I’m very sad about David Letterman retiring! Even when it comes to television hosts, I’m like Stewie on Family Guy. Dave was so different and shocking when he first got on the air. The parents kept watching Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and the kids all switched to Letterman. People forget how revolutionary […]

Tweet The Grammys are tonight and Eminem’s “Berzerk” is nominated for Best Rap Performance. I hope rocker Billy Squier has been making mad money from that song, which samples Squier’s 1981 hit, “The Stroke.” Billy deserves it! I have been meaning to write about Billy for years. I didn’t see him perform live in his […]

Tweet I’m Jewish but I have a few Christmas-related odds-and-ends. I rediscovered some of these while going through old stuff at my childhood home this year. If any of y’all still have an old-timey record player, we can celebrate Hall & Oates’ stunning induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by playing this […]

Tweet This one isn’t quite as over-the-top as the vintage Versace dress on this morning’s wish list post.  The small Pandora bag by Givenchy is gorgeous in person — the photo doesn’t do it justice. Of course, I need another bag like Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin needs a hole in his head. So I’ll admire […]

Tweet Recently, one of my blogger friends — I can’t remember who! Confess in the comments, if you like! — remarked that as inspiring as the wimmins of the Advanced Style blog are, many of them are over-the-top in a way that is intimidating to the less fashion-involved lady. I took another look at the […]

Tweet In May 2011, I blogged about Justin Bieber’s Stewie Griffin bling. How in the world did I miss Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane chatting with Conan O’Brien — in Stewie’s voice — about the necklace later that year? Wow, Bieber fever is actually very dangerous! I don’t want you to miss anything the way […]

Tweet Next May, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is going to present a retrospective of one of my favorite ’80s fashion designers: Patrick Kelly. I have a nice little Patrick Kelly collection: The notorious and frequently worn leopard gown (seen in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011). Bow dress (seen in 2009 and 2011). Black mullet […]

Tweet Whenever I’m super-busy, I like to tell MrB that I’m a “busy businesswoman doing business.” That’s inspired by this Family Guy moment. I don’t have a lot of photos of me in the office during my corporate days, but I’ve dug up two. This one is from 1995, when I worked for the Wall […]

Tweet I’m suddenly obsessed with this cat meme. It’s highlarious to me. On Reddit, someone suggested that this person could be the cat’s owner. Of course, cats are known for doing weird stretchy leg things. FitzRoy does both legs at once!

Tweet A week ago today, I was enjoying my annual Pimm’s Fest with my gorgeous London blogger friends. The fest started in 2008, when I met up with Sharon of Thrift My Style and the lovely lady behind the since-abandoned Times of Glory blog to shop Trudie Styler’s castoffs (why didn’t I buy more?! I’ve […]
