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 […]

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 […]

With only a few weeks before the start of the fall season, it’s time for me to make sure that all my summer clothes have gotten out and about. I hadn’t worn this Alexander McQueen top yet this year, so it got to go to dinner at the uptown Red Farm. (Good Chinese food; I […]

I spent 10 years in business journalism, and the gyrations of the stock market are more than enough to bring back the memories, thank you very much.

(Several of our Parisian friends were in New York while we were in their city.) I think everyone who was left in the city was sitting along the Seine that night. Whenever […]

Parsons plays God, who is wrestling with “wrath-management” issues while he’s in the midst of updating the Ten Commandments. The by-the-book angel Gabriel is played by Tim Kazurinsky […]

When I was a kid, I was crazy for Fruit Stripe gum. A photo brings the Fruit Stripe taste back to me instantly. The taste leaves me just as quickly, which makes the whole experience totally realistic because Fruit Stripe gum has only about five seconds of flavor in it. The disappointment of Fruit Stripe […]

My hair guru Keith Carpenter and his partner Olivier had a dinner party on Saturday at their beautiful apartment in Brooklyn. I dressed in the same Zang Toi jacket/faux-garter tights combo that I wore to see Cabaret in January and to Zang’s Fall 2014 runway show.  What can I say? I like this outfit! What […]

If you’ve read my blog for a long time, you might be familiar with my Sex-ay Pilgrim Dress, but did you know I also have a Sex-ay Military Nurse Dress? The latter is khaki and past knee-length, but with a plunging neckline. I wore it to a dinner party on Saturday. What Wendy Wore Dress: […]
