We had to take our photos at night this time, but yesterday MrB and I managed to recreate our throwback pictures from our long-ago trip to  Vienna. First, we attended the Data Journalism Awards, held at Vienna’s City Hall, where MrB both presented awards and also accepted the award for best individual portfolio on behalf […]

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.

The phrase “crisp white shirt” has always set my teeth on edge. As I wrote in 2009: “I hate the fact that everyone feels obliged to use the word ‘crisp.’ Can’t it just be a white shirt? Does it always have to be crispy?“ But I also say “Never is the next new thing™,” and […]

Here’s a political throwback: Anthony Weiner, the former New York Congressman and failed mayoral candidate who was brought down by sexting scandals. He’s the subject of the new documentary Weiner, by Elyse Steinberg and Josh Kriegman, who were given extensive access because they were there to shoot a political comeback. Instead, they were flies on […]

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press had its annual awards dinner at the Pierre Hotel last night, and MrB and I were there. RCFP is different from the Committee to Protect Journalists, the nonprofit that MrB chaired for six years, though both are excellent organizations.  The Reporters Committee is focused on legal issues […]

I’m passionate about keeping clothes a long time … a trait that enables me to do fun collages like this. But what works with a vintage gown can get a little gross with frequently worn jeans. A few weeks ago, it occurred to me that my newest pair of jeans was five years old and […]

Style cliches abound on Instagram and then are beaten into the ground by style writers: the culturally inappropriate Native […]

Thanks to a friend’s last-minute invitation, I wound up at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame‘s 2016 induction ceremony at Barclays Center last Friday. It was an incredibly entertaining night in a batshit-crazy kind of way. First of all, an awards show where presenters and honorees can swear as much as they like and […]

This spring is the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. (How did I forget Shakespeare’s wife was named Anne Hathaway? LOL.) To mark the event, the Royal Shakespeare Company has brought the playwright’s Great Cycle of Kings to the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Richard II, Henry IV Parts I & II, and Henry V are […]

I’d heard of singer Andra Day before, but I didn’t truly HEAR her until she performed with Ellie Goulding at the Grammy Awards last month. While she was still on the Grammy stage, I was checking for tour dates and I had my tickets for her March 25 show at Webster Hall by the time […]
