Last Thursday, on what would have been designer Ossie Clark’s 74th birthday, I said I would wear one of my Ossie pieces to dinner on the weekend.

Thank you to vintage-fashion expert Liz of Vintage-a-Peel for pointing out that June 9 is the late Ossie Clark’s birthday. Ossie would have been 74 today.

I like to catch Ringo Starr‘s show whenever he’s in town, so I got tickets for his October 31 concert at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. I figured I’d dress the part of a Beatles fan in the “Mod girl” outfit I’d worn once before for Halloween. It wasn’t until last week that I realized I’d […]

Ten years ago, for Halloween, I dressed as a Mod in an original 1960s Ossie Clark dress and white vinyl bubble hat. The white go-go boots were reproductions. My hair was shorter then. MrB was … well, I guess he was a guy wearing a mustache. Other favorite Halloween throwbacks: Diamond Doodles’s 2014 doodles with […]

I had a private event at the Plaza Hotel last Thursday in order to present my entire Maneater ring collection to press and retailers. The centerpiece of the display was supposed to be my new Pink Elephant and Tipsy Writer ring, but it was absent for a good reason — a photoshoot related to its […]

MrB and I love London. We’ve gone there every year since 2008 to visit our many friends who live in the city or close to it. In particular, I like to meet up with gorgeous bloggers and drink Pimm’s.  Here are my previous London posts. 2013: Pimm’s fest and a strange trench coat. 2012: Fish […]
