Tweet It was 20 years ago today that Pulp Fiction was given a wide release. Time flies when you’re a bad motherfucker! The movie was the first independent film to gross more than $200 million. When it came out, critic Roger Ebert gave it four stars and called the screenplay (which won an Oscar) “so […]

Tweet October’s Jewel of the Month are the Halloween-appropriate hockey mask and chainsaw stud earrings, available in silver … … and gold-plated silver. Because I’m all about the single-earring look, you can also buy just a chainsaw (or two) stud or just a mask. I’ve also got the mask available as a ring. Although the […]

Tweet OG 1990s rapper Lil’ Kim is angry — and not for the first time — because she feels newer girl Nicki Minaj is biting her style. Kim, also known as the “Queen Bee,” has been a busy bee this week, putting out two diss tracks, and the week ain’t over!  Today’s track makes the […]

Tweet Today is my SEVENTH blogversary! I started this blog on July 23, 2007, by warning that I wouldn’t be blogging much. Two days later, I discovered Britney Spears had “borrowed” one of my rings without permission. I simply had to share that online, and after that, I was unstoppable.  Since then, I’ve written over […]

Tweet Angelina Jolie wears an impressive set of horns in her starring role in Maleficent, Disney’s retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story. The horned headpiece originated in the 1959 animated Sleeping Beauty movie. But I kept thinking that someone else had worn some hot-looking horns relatively recently. And I was right! Here is a still […]

Tweet We wore some seriously oversized tops in the 1980s. Giant t-shirts, giant vests, giant button-front shirts, giant sweatshirts, giant jackets. Size mattered! Some time ago, I caught a rerun of Cheers that brought back fond memories of the too-big look. Cheers is great for any kind of ’80s style spotting, of course, but guest […]

Tweet It rained all weekend in New York City. During the deluge on Saturday, we were inspired to see the movie Noah, starring Russell Crowe. I’m still recovering from that. I don’t know if I liked the movie or hated it. It was … an experience. I supposed my best description is Game of Thrones/original […]

Tweet I was very pleased with the blue lipstick — Doll by Ka’Oir – that I wore to my designing friend Zang Toi’s Fall/Winter 2014 runway show last month. Because I was happy with that one, I wasn’t planning on buying another blue lipstick, but I couldn’t resist a deeper shade by Melt Cosmetics, mainly […]

Tweet Every year, the Vanity Fair Oscar party is the Best!Party!Ever! Last night was no exception. We walked in right behind Paula Patton, who is quite tall and looked RADIANT without that up-to-no-good Robin Thicke by her side. I couldn’t get over her perfect skin. Paula, Glenn Close, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck all had […]

Tweet Yesterday, when I wrote (again!) about my enduring fondness for ’80s-style single earrings, I mentioned that I am sometimes more subtly influenced by my love of ’80s fashion. For instance, I was unexpectedly taken down an ’80s path by the floral-printed Givenchy handbag that hyp-mo-tized me during Thanksgiving window-shopping. This weekend, my gorgeous mother, […]
