Earlier this month, I squeezed in a visit to the record-setting “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibit just before the end of its run at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. What Wendy Wore to the Museum Dress: James Perse (purchased between 1998-2002; previously seen here) Shoes: Dolce & Gabbana (2015) Purse: Yves Saint […]

I went to a party last night and, as you might have guessed from yesterday’s post, I wore my vintage Zandra Rhodes dress/caftan. Hair-styling goddess Julie Matos of the Warren-Tricomi salon put a lot of thought into the right ‘do for my outfit. Zandra is famous for her bright pink hair … View image | […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Believe it or not, Mother’s Day wasn’t created by Hallmark. It wasn’t even created by a mother. A child-free woman named Anna Jarvis organized the first Mother’s Day services with her own mother in mind in 1908.  Activist Julia Ward Howe had proposed a similar idea […]

Last night, I went to my designing friend Zang Toi’s Spring 2015 runway show at Lincoln Center. The show was also a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Zang’s line. That’s a long run in fashion! You have to multiply fashion years the way you would dog years. Like, 25 years in fashion is at […]

As if there had been any doubt, tonight’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala proved that the attendees of this event are very comfortable with “pretty.” Last year’s gala, which celebrated the opening of the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, should have inspired a lot of fun theme dressing, but with a few exceptions […]

The New York Times says New York Fashion Week, as we know it, maybe be nearing the end of its run, as designers lean towards smaller presentations or going digital. But for now, the shows are kicking off as usual. I’m looking forward to going to my designing friend Zang Toi‘s show at Lincoln Center […]

I like this quote about jewelry from an interview that fashion designer Miuccia Prada did with the New York Times in May: “I’m interested in jewels … I know what it is: I only like antique jewelry because I like the stories attached to them. I like to know who was wearing them. It’s the […]

I posted an eye-catching vintage dress by Versace’s diffusion label, Versus, earlier this month. Gorgeous designer/blogger/stylist/neighbor/BFF Stacy Lomman took notice and paid me a visit with a big Versace book in hand. She thought she spotted the Versace season that was then re-interpreted by Versus. While I flipped through the book admiring the photos of […]

I love this photo of my gorgeous body-painted friend, makeup artist/model Tennille Nielsen, rocking my OMG rings at crotch level. In case you don’t remember the rings from my recent Topshop post, here’s a closeup of them. I’ll share more pictures from Tennille’s shoot later. By the way, Tennille is my go-to girl for makeup […]

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 need […]
