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 […]

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 like slow fashion and homegrown vintage. Here are some of my favorite old looks, re-worn in 2015. Whenever I wear my sex-ay Pilgrim dress by Donald Brooks Couture, I enjoy it so much that I wear it again almost immediately. I originally wore the dress in 2004 to the Committee to Protect Journalists awards […]

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. […]

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 […]
