I’m mad that I didn’t see this vintage Moschino dress on 1stdibs.com before someone else bought it. I already have two Moschino “message” dresses. I wore my “You Can Dress Me Up But You Can’t Take Me Out” dress for the first time in 2010. In 2014, I got the “Not Just a Pretty Dress” […]

Glamorous show-business events are great for spotting ultra-high-end jewelry, like the 200 carats of Harry Winston diamonds recently worn by Jennifer Lopez at the Golden Globes. But I swear that the place to see the most exciting fine jewelry is at Jewelers of America’s GEM Awards — “the Academy Awards of the fine jewelry industry” […]

I was browsing 1980s vintage while watching the Golden Globes red carpet, and I had to point out this ruffled Pierre Cardin design to my designing friend Stacy Lomman. Stacy is the one who looked through my closet once and said, “Wow! Even your ruffles have ruffles!” I said, “Do you think this has enough […]

MrB and I held our New Year’s Eve dinner for friends at Narcissa, the restaurant at the Standard Hotel in the East Village. As planned, I wore a new-to-me, secondhand dress that I got because of its Klaus Nomi-esque shoulder pads and V-shaped sheer panel in the front. What Wendy Wore Dress: Brian Lichtenberg (purchased […]

Ten years ago tonight, I wore a vintage Clovis Ruffin dress, my gold Cleopatra earrings and a whole lot of extra hair to my New Year’s Eve celebration at Balthazar. Normally, I love a 10-year fashion-anniversary opportunity. But tonight, I’m wearing a (new-to-me) secondhand dress that, with the right hair and makeup, is intended to […]

Here’s a “What Wendy Wore” outfit for each month of 2015. (I’m not including any of the looks from my “Outfits on Repeat in 2015” post.) Click the photos for the original posts. I felt great in the Zang Toi jacket and faux-garter tights that I wore to Zang’s runway show in February 2014, so […]

New York’s iconic Four Seasons restaurant — which opened in 1959 and for which the term “power lunch” was invented — is being booted from the Seagram Building next year.  I’ve had many birthday dinners there (as well as one dinner with Norman Mailer).  Tonight was the final Four Seasons birthday dinner. We sat in […]

My parents, GeorgeB and BarbaraB, will be married for 50 years on December 26. For half a century of marriage, you deserve more than a one-day celebration, so we kicked off the fun early. First, my mother received her Wendy Brandes anniversary ring in October.  Then, for Thanksgiving, my parents took the entire family went […]

Have you heard about the 3-7-14 shopping rule from costume designer Jenn Rogien? I’m sure this is very handy for a lot of people, but I always have trouble following the rules. This summer, I hit the vintage racks at Bond 07 by Selima with my friend Julie Matos, who enjoys playing stylist for me. […]
