MrB and I went to California on Labor Day weekend to visit family and friends. We stayed near the beach in Santa Monica and it was so beautiful, daytime … … and nighttime. The buildings were pink, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky … … and the Champagne sangria was delicious. MrB and I […]

It’s Madonna’s 56th birthday today and in honor of the big event I did something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time — photograph as many of my Madonna tour t-shirts as I could find. Here is Henry the dog inspecting 14 concert shirts. The oldest shirt is from 1990, in the top […]

I can’t resist a museum gift shop. When I’m at one in real life, I’m drawn to catalogs and books. On the Internets, I look at fashion. Last night, I was browsing some gift shops online when I hit the Guggenheim‘s site. Why didn’t I know that this New York City museum sells a reproduction […]

J5 stands for the Jackson 5 — the family musical group that launched Michael, who ultimately went on to much bigger stardom.  The website describes the “collection” as “a unique celebration of The Jacksons achievements as an international mega group.”  […]

If one of you is desperate to buy me a gift, I’ll gladly take a chartreuse ombre gown from Olivier Theyskens’s first show for Nina Ricci in 2007. Vintage dealer Marilyn Glass has a nice one on 1stdibs.com. I despised chartreuse for years. Decades even. Then, overnight, I fell in love with it. I often […]

I’ve been listening to Nirvana’s Nevermind album recently. When it came out in 1991, I got it on cassette after work and ran home to listen to it even though I had the beginnings of a headache. In fact, I listened to it over and over on full blast until my headache developed into a […]

One thing I love about U.K. magazines is that they occasionally give me presents. My keychain is a light-blue heart from Aspinal of London that I got with an issue of Tatler a while back. This month, while in London, I picked up an issue of Elle that came with a Paul & Joe Sister […]

The Saturday event caused me to miss my designing friend Zang Toi‘s show for the first time […]

Honest to God, I was a very shy child… …but that was a long time ago, little monsters. More about the Lady Gaga concert soon (that’s my souvenir t-shirt above). Also, thanks to all of you who have posted and tweeted about Janet, as well as everyone who has generously donated and/or purchased a Teeny […]
