Last week, I visited family near Chicago. During the trip, I gave my gorgeous mother, BarbaraB, her redesigned engagement ring. I also built this fabulous brick city. It was chilly outside the Windy City, so I wore my faux-ostrich feather jacket by Stacy Lomman. I didn’t take a new outfit photo with it, so here […]

E! Online has compared Lady Gaga’s latest hairstyle to Pippi Longstocking‘s braids. But when I saw E!’s tweet, I didn’t think Pippi at all. What I thought was, “Been there, seen that, got the t-shirt.” The braided lady on that t-shirt is gorgeous Wall Street Journal artist Noli Novak. When I worked at the Journal […]

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 collection. […]

A strappy, cut-out one-piece bathing suit by Agent Provocateur has been hot for a while. Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara looked great in it! Kim Kardashian has worn the bikini version. That two-piece look was popular enough that another company produced something similar, causing Agent Provocateur to sue. Knowing that, I thought I had fallen […]

Designer Stephen Sprouse did camouflage-print designs based on screenprints by Andy Warhol in 1987 and 1988. Sprouse was famous for his use of Day-Glo colors, so if I were going to get a vintage Sprouse camo print, I’d probably go for something like this skirt. But, last week, this ’80s Sprouse on 1stdibs.com caught my […]

I was super-excited to go to the Vanity Fair Oscar party in Los Angeles last night. This event is a major thrill for me … but that doesn’t always mean I get a new dress for the occasion. I actually enjoy wearing the same dress to events that are just a few months apart, especially […]

In fashion, what comes around goes around …. and around and around and around. On Thursday, I read a Wall Street Journal story called “Transparent Style That’s Sheer Daring” by the lovely Christina Binkley, which was about see-through clothing being big for spring. That trend has been bubbling up for a while — I wrote […]

While doing some research for my next Huffington Post story on fashion-blogger trends, I came across this amusing 1984 observation from New York Times journalist John Duka: “One of the requisite skills for sitting at a fashion show is being able to roll your eyes, talk to the person behind you, chew mints and say […]
