Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet Isn’t it amazing how this Paco Rabanne jacket from 1967 still looks fashion-forward? I would love to wear it. It would be perfect with jeans and a black t-shirt. What can I say? The year 1967 produced all kinds of stylish things … like me!

Tweet The best way to predict the next big fashion trend is to remember my catchphrase: “Never is the next new thing™.” The styles that are most hated at first — the ones that make people say, “Never!” — are the ones that are hottest once our eyes adjust. Since I figured this out, whenever […]

Tweet I like to watch music videos while I’m at the gym. Isn’t that quaint? MTV doesn’t play many music videos these days. I remember when it did. The first video the network aired when it debuted right after midnight on August 1, 1981, was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles. The Buggles […]
