I came across this description of social-media attitudes on MetaFilter recently, and I thought it was high!larious! “OTHER PEOPLE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENJOY THINGS THAT I DO NOT ENJOY.” That line sums up a vast number of conversations on Twitter. I’m always amazed that people have the time and energy to aggressively tell strangers […]

I enjoyed Isabel Marant’s interview with Telegraph Fashion last month. The French designer, whose wedge sneakers kickstarted the fashion sneaker trend last year, let her many imitators have it: “Everybody who has the wrong one looks quite bitchy, very vulgar, when mine are not at all.” I’m not 100% sure what it means to look […]

I spent some time poking around teh Internets yesterday, looking for someone to confirm the authenticity of a wimmin-hating dress-code email sent out by CBS’s official prudes ahead of Sunday’s Grammy telecast. Did you see this? It was first reported by Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood on Wednesday. A source leaked the memo to her, […]

The reaction to my “romantic, gothic, alien” jewelry that I hear (and enjoy) the most is, “I’ve never seen anything like that in my life.” Other jewelers gasp when they see that my golden egg locket opens to reveal a tiny, diamond-eyed silver chicken … which, in turn, opens to reveal three gold eggs. I […]

Yesterday, after I gave Kanye West a pat on the back for his edgy wardrobe choices, he went right back to doing what he does best: complaining about how the world won’t let Kanye West be great. While venting at a second show in Atlantic City last night he said the Grammys have done him […]

I’m tortured by a television ad for Vonage phone service, in which customer Kimberly Klecza explains why she uses Vonage to call her Nana. Kimberly really does say, “Letters and text messages are just thrown aside … conversations you don’t get rid of … they’re memories.” Yes, of course, there’s nothing like hearing a loved […]

Between Hurricane Sandy and work, I didn’t get around to making Halloween plans. I had a great costume in mind too. My favorite part about dressing up is the hair and makeup, so I’m definitely not going to stick a pair of cat ears on my head, draw on some eyeliner whiskers and call it […]

I normally have no interest in sports, but I enjoyed the Olympics so much that I’m sad to see it end. The swimming, diving, and gymnastics were my favorites, though I liked track and field too.  I preferred watching the women’s competitions. You can catch men playing sports on television every day but where besides […]

I’ve always had a passion for whimsical fashion. Designer Jeremy Scott‘s work definitely has a sense of humor, so I’ve often admired it, though I haven’t purchased anything yet. Maybe I’ll rectify that because, once again, I’m salivating over one of his pieces — a Rainbow Brite-worthy jacket worn by Nicki Minaj. I wouldn’t wear […]

As I said in a recent post, I have worn neon-colored clothes since the 1980s. IF YOU MISSED MY HUFFINGTON POST PIECE ON NEON, CLICK HERE. When I saw this neon-pink-and-black Spring 2012 dress by designer Chris Benz last fall, I took a chance and ordered it. I don’t usually go for blousy tops, but […]
