Tweet I recently dug up this photo of me in Dublin in September or October 1997. I’m wearing a vintage Lillie Rubin coat that I got at Allan & Suzi on the Upper West Side. Check out the red-jacket-wearing photobomber in this one, staring at me as if he’d never seen a woman in a […]

Tweet While browsing through old photos for last week’s Throwback Thursday post inspired by Marc Jacobs, I came across this pre-camera-phone selfie of me and MrB. This was taken in January 2002, about three months after I got my first digital camera. My technique has improved since then, fortunately!

Tweet GeorgeB’s big birthday on Saturday was a lot of fun. After the celebratory dinner, Terri Berry and I lined up with Dad for an updated version of our 1989 birthday photo. Then we gave him kisses … … which inspired his sons-in-law to do the same. My mom and nephew got in on the […]

Tweet My handsome father, GeorgeB, is turning 75 today. The family is getting together for a celebration. GeorgeB is expecting us this time, unlike in 1989, when we threw him a surprise 50th birthday party. Back then, there seemed to be an eternity between me and 50.  Now it’s around the corner. Saying “time flies” […]

Tweet A big book arrived yesterday from Yale University. It was put together in honor of the 50th anniversary of the class of 1964 — MrB’s graduating class. Everyone had the opportunity to write his biography for the book. (It is “his” biography, rather than “his or her,” because Yale didn’t go coed until 1969.) […]

Tweet The customer of the day is my own gorgeous sister, Terri Berry. (No, Berry is not her real last name. I wish!) She surprised me with this photo of her 18K yellow gold and garnet pomegranate/peace sign necklace. This design dates back to 2008, if not earlier. I love to see people enjoying their […]

Tweet Yesterday, when I wrote (again!) about my enduring fondness for ’80s-style single earrings, I mentioned that I am sometimes more subtly influenced by my love of ’80s fashion. For instance, I was unexpectedly taken down an ’80s path by the floral-printed Givenchy handbag that hyp-mo-tized me during Thanksgiving window-shopping. This weekend, my gorgeous mother, […]

Tweet Today is my parents’ 48th wedding anniversary. BarbaraB and GeorgeB got married in 1965 at a place called Leonard’s on Long Island. It’s still there. After the wedding, my mother cut the sleeves off her wedding dress and wore it to someone else’s wedding. “It was a minor trend to wear white to weddings,” […]

Tweet The original street-style photographer, Bill Cunningham of the New York Times, also shoots big social events. He was at the Committee to Protect Journalists International Press Freedom Awards on Tuesday, where he photographed MrB, the other awardees and guests. You can see the pictures in tomorrow’s New York Times Sunday Styles section … and […]

Tweet The clearing out of my childhood home continues to yield all kinds of Throwback Thursday material. The latest is a page from a 1998 issue of New York Magazine. Gael Greene reviewed a restaurant called Pondicherry; her blurb was accompanied by a blurry photo of me and my gorgeous sister, Terri Berry. (We’re at […]
