Tweet The real winner of the Grammys was Pharrell’s hat, and now designer Vivienne Westwood is winning too. After the hat was identified as a style introduced by Westwood in 1982 and featured in the video for Malcolm McLaren’s early hip-hop classic “Buffalo Gals,” the website for Westwood’s online World’s End shop crashed because of […]

Tweet I started watching Breaking Bad last month and caught up on all the past seasons in time to watch last week’s penultimate series episode when it first aired. Phew! Now I’m good to go for this Sunday’s finale, even though I’m not fully recovered from the week of nightmares I had after seeing “Ozymandias.” […]

Tweet My designing friend Zang Toi had his Fall 2013 show at Lincoln Center last Wednesday. This season, he was inspired by Imperial Russia. Opulence. Zang has it! I was particularly attracted to the pieces in amethyst and emerald. Now that I think of it, maybe I’m looking for something to go with my Marie […]

Tweet It’s my dream Whodini hat PLUS a veil! If anyone has been yearning to buy me a hat for $1,475, your prayers have been answered. Hop to it.

Tweet I’m not a huge hat person, but I do like berets (and hats with Elizabeth Taylor on them). I’ve worn a fuzzy white beret for at least four years. I’m very tempted to upgrade to one of the leopard-spotted Eugenia Kim berets that I saw on Red Carpet Fashion Awards. If I decide to […]

Tweet “Freaks Come Out at Night” from Whodini‘s 1984 Escape album has been stuck in my head for days. It’s reawakened my desire for singer Ecstasy’s trademark hat. If I find a hat just like that, I’m getting it no matter how it looks on me. It looks like I might have to fight gorgeous […]

Tweet I’m yearning for warmer weather in part because I miss wearing the vintage Philip Treacy hat I got last year. (It’s a good weight for spring, summer and fall, but too light for New York winters.) The hat has Andy Warhol’s portrait of Elizabeth Taylor on it and I love the way her lips […]

Tweet I rarely suffer from buyer’s remorse. In the past five years, there have been two inexpensive vintage dresses from eBay that even the talented Jean of Ghost Tailor couldn’t get to fit right. Then there was one unflattering dress — Oscar de la Renta, I believe — that a vintage-store owner with whom I’d […]

Tweet Last month, I skipped participating in No Makeup Week. It seemed unnecessarily puritanical and you know how I feel about Puritans. “Oh, I’ve been looking too good! Now I have to show the world how I can look shitty,” is not the way I think. Nor do I believe that unflattering photos are so […]

Tweet One of my jewelers has developed a passion for taking videos with his iPhone.  Here I am looking dubious about it. I’m wearing the hat gorgeous blogger Jennine got for me at Tar-Jay. I think it’s a lot better than this chicken hat that I tried on while out on the town with another […]
