Tweet Tomorrow is the last day to see the Charles James exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, and if you can squeeze it in, it’s definitely worthwhile. I went today and realized that photos of James’s uniquely structured ballgowns do not the work justice. That didn’t stop me from taking my own […]

Tweet If you’ve read my blog for a while — or simply looked at my header — you know that my personal (trademarked!) adage is “Never Is the Next New Thing™.” It started out as a 2010 observation about fashion trends. I wrote: “I used to say, ‘Never say never’ when it comes to fashion, […]

Tweet Everywhere I look, I find examples of my “Never is the next new thing™” observation. People switch from “loathe” to “love” so quickly! Last Thursday, the Wall Street Journal had a story on the latest comeback of the miniskirt, citing its representation in the fall collections of Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent; Giambattista Valli; […]

Tweet Gorgeous blogger and concerned citizen Kate of Twisted Skirt tweeted me a clip from the magazine Grazia, showing a word necklace by DKNY. I was intrigued to see that the style of word necklace I added to my line in 2012 is catching on in the big leagues. I started with this necklace in […]

Tweet I avoided wearing shorts for most of my adult life until 2010, when a New York City heat wave of 100+ degree weather made me break down and buy the first two pairs I saw at the closest air-conditioned store. I don’t know why shorts didn’t appeal to me for so long. I certainly […]

Tweet In fashion, what comes around goes around …. and around and around and around. On Thursday, I read a Wall Street Journal story called “Transparent Style That’s Sheer Daring” by the lovely Christina Binkley, which was about see-through clothing being big for spring. That trend has been bubbling up for a while — I […]

Tweet Friends who used to live in Hong Kong had their annual Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival party last Friday. The invitation encouraged Chinese attire. I don’t have anything authentically Chinese anymore (why on earth did I get rid of that padded silk jacket I got in Hong Kong in 1996?!) but I do have an Ossie […]

Tweet I started this blog five years ago today. In my initial post, I warned that I wouldn’t be blogging much. Two days later, I discovered Britney Spears had “borrowed” one of my rings without permission. Of course, I had to share that online, and after that, I couldn’t stop. Since then, I’ve changed the […]

Tweet ProPublica — the nonprofit journalism organization where MrB is editor-in-chief  — partnered with Selfless Tee to produce a t-shirt last month. The shirt featured a design by Ryan Grossman that said “Journalism With Moral Force.” Selfless Tee creates cause-inspired T-shirts that help support a range of non-profits, and ProPublica got $7 from every $22 […]

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 […]
