Tweet 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! […]

Tweet My Pink Elephant and Tipsy Writer Maneater ring was inspired by novelist and journalist Jack London (1876 – 1916). As a child, I was a huge fan of London’s dog/wolf novels, The Call of the Wild and White Fang, but I was blissfully unaware of his fictionalized “alcoholic memoirs,” John Barleycorn.
