MrB and I held our New Year’s Eve dinner for friends at Narcissa, the restaurant at the Standard Hotel in the East Village. As planned, I wore a new-to-me, secondhand dress that I got because of its Klaus Nomi-esque shoulder pads and V-shaped sheer panel in the front. What Wendy Wore Dress: Brian Lichtenberg (purchased […]

My gorgeous British friend Alyson Walsh came to New York to celebrate the U.S. publication of her book Style Forever. We toasted her with Moet & Chandon Champagne at the Michele Varian shop in Soho. The subtitle of Aly’s book is “The Grown-Up Guide to Looking Fabulous,” and the guests lived up to it! I […]

I’ve got a 1980s Bain de Soleil ad jingle stuck in my head: “Bain de Soleil, for the Saint Tropez tan …” St. Tropez was the third and final stop on our recent trip to Europe. Our friend Scott was having his 50th-birthday party at the beautiful chateau where we’d celebrated his wedding in 2008. […]

We left London for Paris on Monday, August 3. Paris empties out in August because so many Parisians take a nice long holiday. (Several of our Parisian friends were in New York while we were in their city.) I think everyone who was left in the city was sitting along the Seine that night. Whenever […]

If you read this post about what I wore for New Year’s Eve in 1994 and 2004, you must have figured out that I was going to wear the red Versace dress from 2004 again. I can’t resist a 10-year fashion anniversary. What Wendy Wore for New Year’s Eve Dress: Versace (2004) Shoes: Prada (pre-2005) […]

The French newspaper Le Monde is celebrating its 70th anniversary, and MrB was invited to the Le Monde Festival to speak on a panel about the future of journalism. After MrB did his journalism-related work, I had a little business to do. The Biennale de Paris is a show of antiques, artwork and jewelry, and […]

MrB and I went to California on Labor Day weekend to visit family and friends. We stayed near the beach in Santa Monica and it was so beautiful, daytime … … and nighttime. The buildings were pink, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky … … and the Champagne sangria was delicious. MrB and I […]

In March, when Rihanna and Eminem announced the dates for their joint, three-city Monster Tour, I wasn’t sure what tickets to get.  It would be practical to get seated tickets, but in huge venues like New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, which has over 80,000 seats, even the best seats are fairly far away from the stage.

While traveling in Europe last month, I did some things that I’d wanted to do for decades. I visited Liverpool, which I first dreamed of doing in 1980. I’m glad Mark Lewisohn, the author of Tune In, the 2013 book about the Beatles that prompted me to finally take the trip, saw that I credited […]
