Here’s a political throwback: Anthony Weiner, the former New York Congressman and failed mayoral candidate who was brought down by sexting scandals. He’s the subject of the new documentary Weiner, by Elyse Steinberg and Josh Kriegman, who were given extensive access because they were there to shoot a political comeback. Instead, they were flies on […]

George Michael’s quote in yesterday’s post about “the years when HIV was a killer” reminded me that I’ve been meaning to share the San Francisco Chronicle’s “Last Men Standing” project. The Chronicle described its package of print and digital stories and film this way: “They outlived an epidemic, but San Francisco’s AIDS survivors are still […]

Do you follow me on Instagram? If not, you should, because that’s where you might get a chance to pre-order my newest designs or get an early shot at a sale. For instance, I gave a sneak peek of my new SLAY stud earrings on IG last month … … and the first order has […]

If you heard a piercing scream when Spotlight won Best Picture at last night’s Oscars … that was me. I had practically given up hope because MrB kept saying, “Oh, The Revenant is going to win.” I was also jumping up and down over Mad Max‘s six awards (I thought it deserved Best Director too).  […]

I’m watching the Oscars now, hoping that Spotlight will win all six of its categories, including Best Picture. Not only was it an excellent movie about investigative journalism, but one of the real-life people portrayed in the movie is someone I’ve known for a long time! That person is Marty Baron, who was played very […]

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 […]
