My gorgeous British friend Alyson Walsh came to New York to celebrate the U.S. publication of her book Style Forever. We toasted her with Moet & Chandon Champagne at the Michele Varian shop in Soho. The subtitle of Aly’s book is “The Grown-Up Guide to Looking Fabulous,” and the guests lived up to it! I […]

I went to three journalism-related events in eight days last month! The first was a lunch for the International Women’s Media Foundation’s Courage in Journalism Awards on October 21. The IWMF describes the awards as honoring “women journalists who set themselves apart by their extraordinary bravery,” and this year’s awardees are true heroes. Mwape Kumwenda […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve done the Halloween ho stroll, to borrow a phrase from the highlarious Michael K of Dlisted. I’m more likely to dress for the holiday as a non-sexy Anne Boleyn, Adam Ant, member of Devo, or random Mod girl. That said, I figured that for a drinks date on […]

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 […]

My friend Jim Pensiero retired after 31 years at the Wall Street Journal, and there was a huge party for him tonight at Brasserie Ruhlmann in Rockefeller Center. I belatedly realized that I should have worn the Lolita Lempicka suit and Lillie Rubin coat that I bought when I worked at the Journal from 1992 […]

Last Thursday, MrB and I went to a dinner in honor of George Wein’s 90th birthday. George produced the first Newport Jazz Festival in 1954, and the celebration at City Winery doubled as a fundraiser for the nonprofit Newport Festivals Foundation. There were amazing musical performances throughout the evening. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a program […]

Back in the day, when Madonna would play a series of New York City dates, I’d get tickets to one show and say, “I want to do it again!” as soon as the house lights went up. I finally figured out it was best to always get tickets to two shows, which is why I […]

If you had told 1980s me that, in the distant future, I’d see Duran Duran once and Madonna twice in a single week, I would have been mind-blowingly happy … but not totally surprised.  I always promised myself that when I graduated from high school, I’d move to New York, where I would find like-minded […]

MrB and I went to the Broadway production of hot-hot-hot musical Hamilton tonight. Despite the uniformly rave reviews for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop interpretation of Ron Chernow’s 2005 biography of Alexander Hamilton, I was dreading the evening a little. I was originally supposed to see Hamilton on March 26, when it was downtown at the Public […]

Earlier this month, I squeezed in a visit to the record-setting “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibit just before the end of its run at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. What Wendy Wore to the Museum Dress: James Perse (purchased between 1998-2002; previously seen here) Shoes: Dolce & Gabbana (2015) Purse: Yves Saint […]
