I was distraught to learn on Friday that iconic ’80s DJ Anita Sarko had killed herself. I didn’t know her personally, but she was a big part of the club scene that I read about avidly in Details magazine and Michael Musto’s Village Voice column. I was so fascinated by Anita that I have a […]

I’m not a big fan of fast fashion, but I do like this H&M ad. It does strike me as a bit odd that this was done to promote H&M’s clothes-recycling program. Companies like H&M popularized disposable fashion in the first place and now they’re trying to look noble by offering a quasi-solution to the […]

Earlier this year, my hair guru Keith Carpenter tried to persuade me to go back to the kind of pixie style he gave me in the 1990s. I was like, “NAHHHH,” because I love my mullet. I’ve done variations on mullet-y hairstyles — short on top, long in the back — for years. This photo […]

I’ve had this photo of Stevie Nicks saved to my computer desktop for about a year, just because it’s gorgeous. I’ve always loved Stevie’s voice, music and style. I glued myself to the TV when Fleetwood Mac’s “Gypsy” came on MTV in the early 1980s — taking occasional breaks to spin around the living room […]

Shout out to New York Magazine’s The Cut blog for putting together this great slideshow of Bianca Jagger’s looks over the years. (Bianca was Mick Jagger’s first wife, in case you don’t know!) Highlights include several examples of Bianca’s famous white pantsuits; her entrance on a white horse at Studio 54 for her 1977 birthday […]

Every so often, I wind up scouring the Internet for information on the New York City club people whom I worshiped from afar in the 1970s and 1980s — people like Anya Phillips,  Sally Randall, Dianne Brill and Dean Johnson of Dean and the Weenies. Recently, I stumbled across the name Haoui “Howie” Montaug. It’s […]

You know when someone is talking nonsense to you and it would be way too rude to say, “So what?” so you say, “Annnnndddd?” instead? Obviously, it isn’t that much better than “So what?” So bite your tongue and let your lobe(s) do the bitching with my single ampersand earring in sterling silver. I gave […]

In the ’90s, I lived with a roommate in a nice-enough apartment building. We had a doorman, a marble lobby and the location was decent — not too far from the subway — but it definitely wasn’t Park Avenue. One day, I saw a tall, elegant man in the elevator. He was wearing the most […]

The world lost a screen goddess today: actress Elizabeth Taylor has died at the age of 79. She lived an amazingly long life considering her myriad health problems, which included a bout of pneumonia and an emergency tracheotomy in 1961. Shortly after that crisis, Taylor won her first Academy Award for Best Actress for her […]

Superstar hairstylist Julie Matos of the Riccardo Maggiore Salon and I first bonded over our love of the ’80s club/music/fashion scene. Julie’s ’80s-radar went on full alert last month when, while in a Walgreens, she noticed a statuesque, glammed-up blonde. Julie stalked the blonde all over the store till they ended up in the cashier’s […]
