I’m in love with the Paul Andrew Chrysler-Building boots that I saw in a Bergdorf Goodman catalog. Maybe I can wear them with my Zang Toi gown that depicts the Time Warner Center and the Hearst Tower … … and accessorize with my Taxi and Passenger Maneater ring, which is engraved with the Brooklyn Bridge. […]

If you want to shoot a lion, shoot him with your camera. That’s what I did when I visited South Africa’s Thornybush Game Lodge in 2013. Look at this handsome fellow with the huge balls and silky mane! This dude’s hair was so on fleek. I mean, he was on fleek a full year before […]

Thank you to gorgeous Brecken Branstrator for including my one-of-a-kind She Sells Seashells ring in her National Jeweler post on summer-inspired jewelry! The 18K-rose-gold ring features a hand-carved rose-quartz “shell” and diamonds. It makes a statement but it’s not a red-carpet-only ring. You can definitely wear this one on a casual day. Just don’t wear […]

June’s Jewels of the Month are the first nine styles of my brand-new Punk Platinum line. I was inspired to do this collection after […]

Cindy Edelstein of National Jeweler reports in her weekly TrendTracker post that turquoise is “having a real moment in the sun.” That’s an appropriate description, seeing as the cheerfully colored stone is perfect for summer. Of course, just because we use a bright color in our jewelry doesn’t mean we can’t be our morbid, skull-loving […]

I love lists titled “The Best of the Best,” because it makes me think of the overeager West Point graduate in Men in Black who barks “Because we’re the best of the best of the best … SIR!” I love “Best of the Best” lists even more when I’m part of them! I had just […]

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 […]

I’ve always thought my New York City taxi ring needed a few accessories. I finally found some! You can get these 1980s vintage Moschino shoes on 1stdibs. I also found a taxi purse at a store called The Wind in the Willows in Naples, Fla. I was a big fan of The Wind in the […]
