Tweet My name is Wendy Brandes and I’m a Jean-Charles de Castelbajac-aholic. One of my first Castelbajac purchases was a Lego-print dress and matching shoes, which I got in 2009. I wear the shoes frequently, and I do the full, head-to-toe Lego look about once a year. I haven’t always photographed the combo, but I […]

Tweet Our gorgeous friend Jolie Hunt invited me and MrB to the launch party for her marketing and communications firm, Hunt & Gather, earlier this week. (Is that a great company name, or what?) The event was on a former Navy ship named the Baylander, which was docked at Pier 5 in Brooklyn for the […]

Tweet MrB and I recently had dinner with friends at Ouest, a good restaurant on the Upper West Side. If you’re in New York City, I recommend that you check it out. It’s not too formal; you can definitely wear jeans. However, I dressed up a little bit, just because it was one of those […]

Tweet As I previously mentioned, I went to Katy Perry’s concert at Barclays Center last week. I had a rough day so I threw on whatever was at hand/on the floor. When I got to the venue, I was disappointed that I hadn’t come up with a concert costume, or at least a pink or […]

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 When I was hanging out with my designing friend Zang Toi on July 4th, I showed him some old pictures of us together. One of the photos was in this post from 2008 and, as I looked at it, I decided another picture in the same post captured one of my favorite fashion moments […]

Tweet If you follow my personal Instagram, you know that I’ve been doing a bit of traveling lately. I’m currently in Athens, where I admired the Acropolis from a rooftop restaurant last night. I wore a vintage tiger-striped Clovis Ruffin dress that I got in 2008. (It was a maxi but I hemmed it.) I […]

Tweet I’ve been loving the ear jewelry that’s emerged in the past year. There are so many options! But the trend that’s (thankfully) replaced the statement necklace started, as many trends do, quite slowly. Miley Cyrus flaunted her ear cuffs in 2012, when she cut her hair short. But Miley’s style is risky — her […]

Tweet MrB and I had a 4th of July dinner with our designing friend Zang Toi last night. Zang and I made a nice red, white and blue pair. Zang wore one of his trademark, self-designed mini-kilts. (I love those shoes he wears with them; I’m noticing a lot of menswear looks in women’s shoes […]

Tweet When I graduated from college and entered the working world — a long time ago — I bought into the notion that it was good to stock a wardrobe with basic black. Supposedly, if everything you had looked the same, no one would know how many or how few clothes you had, how often […]
