The title of this post refers to Mad Men and sandals, not Mad Men and the “gladiators in suits” populating Scandal. I admit that I have only seen one episode of Scandal, but I’ll have time to catch up now that MrB and I have gotten 72 episodes of Mad Men out of the way. […]

I didn’t get around to finishing my Oscar posts in a timely way, but it’s never too late to talk about jewelry and men’s fashion, right? Anyway, it’s Throwback Thursday so I’m going to go there. My favorite piece of jewelry at the 2015 Oscars was the Piaget ear cuff and matching stud worn by […]

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 iPhone […]

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, but […]

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; Raf […]

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 June […]

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 wore […]

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 wrote […]

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 Clark […]

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 name […]
