Earlier this year, I wrote about Jennifer Hudson’s much-criticized 2007 Oscar outfit, which featured a cropped metallic bolero. I loved it, of course. Embed from Getty Images It was unexpected and fabulous. Embed from Getty Images I do believe it left me with a lasting love for offbeat, cropped jackets. I thought of Hudson’s look […]

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 […]

I was reading the Hollywood Reporter’s Oscar issue and it included an article analyzing what color and style of gown was most likely to be worn by winning actresses. Gold was the lucky color, worn by 50% of the winners, with white in second place at 36%. But I lost all interest in the math […]

The unusually cold and snowy winter we’ve had in New York City had me eager to do one of my Huffington Post fashion round-ups about stylish puffer (aka puffa) jackets, but it wasn’t meant to be. I didn’t get as many volunteers as I would like. Maybe I’ll try again next year. There should be […]

I found another 1980s photo of me wearing my friend Jim’s turquoise leather jacket (by the way, I’m STILL looking for the turquoise jacket of my dreams after returning a discolored one.) This photo was taken indoors right before or after the outdoor photo post here was taken. The fact that there is more than […]

My recent musings on 1980s painted denim jackets drew the attention of my high-school classmate, Karen D. Karen told me she still had her painted Jim Morrison/Doors jacket and, within moments, sent me a photo. I could hardly believe my eyes! It looks brand new. Jim Morrison, the lead singer of The Doors, died in […]

Even though I have fond memories of the 1980s fad for painted denim jackets, I never owned one myself, to the best of my recollection. I don’t know why. Maybe I couldn’t decide which band I wanted painted on the back? I was equally devoted to the Beatles and Duran Duran. I did have a […]

My gorgeous friend Alyssa, who is an excellent cook, invited a bunch of us wimmins over for a fabulous dinner at her apartment last night.  Of course, I asked designer/blogger/stylist Stacy Lomman what I should wear. I let her make all my outfit decisions lately, even for casual occasions. I prefer her taste to my […]

Thank you for all the input on The Turquoise Leather Jacket, especially for the names of the other jacket designers! I’m going to look into those. I’m not 100% sure, but I’ll most likely return the jacket to Bergdorf Goodman. I’d still like to first speak to someone at Kelly Wearstler, the designer of the […]

As a lifelong feminist, it pains me to admit it, but there is one thing that men are often* better at than women … SHOPPING. Surprise! But it’s true. And I’m not talking about how men are hunters and women are gatherers when it comes to trips to the mall. I’m more interested in the […]
