Surely I need this vintage, pink, tulle, mullet skirt for something, right? Maybe it’s time for me to fulfill my ambitions of recreating Pat Benatar’s 1983 “Love Is a Battlefield” video. The skirt would fit right in. This video has so much hilarity in it, but my favorite bit is at the beginning when Pat […]

Everywhere I look, I find examples of my “Never is the next new thing™” observation. People switch from “loathe” to “love” so quickly! Last Thursday, the Wall Street Journal had a story on the latest comeback of the miniskirt, citing its representation in the fall collections of Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent; Giambattista Valli; Raf […]

Designer Stephen Sprouse did camouflage-print designs based on screenprints by Andy Warhol in 1987 and 1988. Sprouse was famous for his use of Day-Glo colors, so if I were going to get a vintage Sprouse camo print, I’d probably go for something like this skirt. But, last week, this ’80s Sprouse on 1stdibs.com caught my […]

I don’t know which I like better: this devilish vintage Moschino skirt … … or the dress version. Both are highlarious. (By the way, you can follow my highlarious fashion board on Pinterest by clicking here.)

In fashion, what comes around goes around …. and around and around and around. On Thursday, I read a Wall Street Journal story called “Transparent Style That’s Sheer Daring” by the lovely Christina Binkley, which was about see-through clothing being big for spring. That trend has been bubbling up for a while — I wrote […]

Sexy runway shows — and celebrity red-carpet choices — have convinced some people that every Versace design is scandalously flesh-baring, but, as I’ve written before, there are plenty of conservative options. I still have the sober Versace pantsuits I wore to work at Lehman Brothers between 2000 and 2005. I also have a knee-length purple […]

One of the big moments of last night’s 12/12/12 Concert for Sandy Relief — for Twitter, at least — was Kanye West’s leather skirt. Peeps couldn’t stop talking about it. Yet, it was also the subject of much chatter and news coverage last year when Kanye wore what looks like the same skirt for his […]

I’m still showing off results from my continuing wardrobe therapy with designer/blogger Stacy Lomman. Outfits #8 and #9 both incorporate black skirts. The skirt for #8 came from a lightweight black Dolce & Gabbana suit; I previously wore it in a Stacy-styled outfit on election night. Fashion experts have been saying, “Split up your suits […]

I think this top and skirt by Yves Saint Laurent will be forever stylish. Do you agree?

Every so often, I check out the vintage fashion listed on 1stdibs.com.  This time I felt like I’d gone shopping without spending any money. First, I noticed this tie-dyed, velvet Todd Oldham dress from the 1990s. It’s being sold by my gorgeous friend Cherie of Shrimpton Couture. After a moment, I realized why I liked […]
