Tweet As I mentioned, the Women’s Jewelry Association Gala took place Monday night at Pier 60 in New York. The WJA describes itself as “a networking organization dedicated to enriching and advancing the professional lives of the women in the jewelry and watch industries.” I call it a great opportunity for me to meet up […]

Tweet Here’s a “What Wendy Wore” outfit for each month of 2013. Click the photos for the original posts. I got the year off to a lively start with the vintage dress I wore last New Year’s Eve. I wore fuchsia again in February to Vanity Fair’s Oscar party. My designing friend Zang Toi made […]

Tweet I barely slept after Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars last Tuesday. That worked out for the best, because I woke up from a brief snooze with the previous night’s curls intact. I was so excited to have them for another day that I was inspired to dress up a bit to meet up […]

Tweet Last week, MrB and I went to dinner with friends at a not-very-special restaurant. I decided to wear a special outfit anyway — one that was put together during last year’s wardrobe therapy with Stacy Lomman. Stacy wanted to find a way to show off an Ossie Clark piece that I bought in London […]

Tweet The name Amanda Lear has long rattled around in the back of my mind particularly because she modeled for one of my all-time favorite designers, Ossie Clark, in the 1960s. Here she is in one of his simpler-looking ensembles … … and here she is in one of Celia Birtwell’s famous prints for Ossie. […]

Tweet While reading this weekend’s Wall Street Journal, I laughed a little over a story called, “The One That Got Away,” about shopping for past-season, but not-officially-vintage fashion on Yoox, eBay, and a number of recently launched pre-owned clothing sites. In particular, these two sentences amused me: “Buying clothes in this way, however, requires a […]

Tweet In the past 10 days, I’ve worn outfits #11, #12 and #13 from my wardrobe therapy project with designer/stylist/blogger Stacy Lomman. Stacy has been trying to break me of my dependence on black tops. The black tops don’t always look bad, of course, but it’s interesting to mix it up. For instance, I’ve worn […]

Tweet Rolling Stone Keith Richards turns 69 today, thanks to an indomitable constitution that has survived everything from heroin to a mean coconut tree. His rock ‘n’ roll sartorial flair is intact too: when MrB and I saw the Stones on their 50th anniversary tour at Barclays Center on December 8, I was thrilled to […]

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’ve always been fond of 1990s fashion designer Todd Oldham, and I’ve acquired a number of his pieces, including this tie-dyed velvet skirt. You know what would be a great addition to my Oldham collection? These beaded boots, available from vintage dealer Marilyn Glass via 1stdibs.com. I’m in love. As much as I like […]
