Ten years and five days ago, MrB and I attended the big Times Square premiere of the latest King Kong remake. That’s the one that starred Jack Black, Naomi Watts and Adrien Brody. The invitation called for festive attire, so I chose a vintage Ossie Clark dress with a Celia Birtwell print. In my first […]

I visited a friend who works at Bergdorf Goodman (one of my favorite stores!) and had some time to kill while she finished up a dress fitting. Libertine designer Johnson Hartig had been in the store last week for a trunk show and the clothes were still there.  I’ve always been interested in the line, […]

Straight Outta Compton, the authorized biopic of the rap group N.W.A, was the unexpected hit movie of the summer. It tells the story of the five guys — Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella — who shocked the country with songs like “Fuck tha Police.” Five guys. But wait! Look at […]

I spent 10 years in business journalism, and the gyrations of the stock market are more than enough to bring back the memories, thank you very much. I wouldn’t normally seek out a movie related to the post-housing-bubble foreclosure crisis, but I’m glad MrB and I caught a screening of 99 Homes last week. I […]

People say that every boxing movie has the same plot and maybe that’s true (except for Million Dollar Baby, because the hero normally doesn’t get killed by adrenaline injection), but it doesn’t mean a movie can’t excel within that range. I was blown away by the Southpaw premiere last night, as was everyone around me […]

Photographer Mary Ellen Mark died in Manhattan on Monday at age 75. She had myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease that affects bone marrow and blood. Mark did everything from documentary photography to fashion photography and ad campaigns, but her best-known project was about homeless teens in Seattle.  It began as a 1983 LIFE magazine photo essay, […]

I usually feature my newest design as the Jewel of the Month, but for March, I was inspired to take another look at an old favorite. After struggling home through snow and sleet this evening, I was happy to throw myself into FitzRoy the cat’s favorite chair and watch a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season […]

Congrats to my girl Skylar Grey for hitting #1 on iTunes earlier today with her song “I Know You” from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. You can also watch it on Vevo.  Between this song and Beyonce’s sex-ay remake of “Crazy in Love,” I’m very interested in this soundtrack! Don’t ask me about the […]

MrB and I watched the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line this weekend. FitzRoy the cat heard the song “Get Rhythm” for the first time and he loved it! First he ran around the living room, then he listened intently, then he ran around some more. I recorded it for FitzRoy’s Instagram account, of course. […]
