The phrase “crisp white shirt” has always set my teeth on edge. As I wrote in 2009: “I hate the fact that everyone feels obliged to use the word ‘crisp.’ Can’t it just be a white shirt? Does it always have to be crispy?“ But I also say “Never is the next new thing™,” and […]

With only a few weeks before the start of the fall season, it’s time for me to make sure that all my summer clothes have gotten out and about. I hadn’t worn this Alexander McQueen top yet this year, so it got to go to dinner at the uptown Red Farm. (Good Chinese food; I […]

Gorgeous blogger Val Sparkle — fellow aficionado of Seinfeld and Family Guy — posted her very own puffy shirt on her blog yesterday. Quite a few wimmins have emailed or tweeted me to tell me about their own puffy shirts since I posted mine on Tuesday. I think I should do a slideshow of puffy-shirt […]

I’ve always been fond of 1990s fashion designer Todd Oldham, and I’ve acquired a number of his pieces, including this tie-dyed velvet skirt. You know what would be a great addition to my Oldham collection? These beaded boots, available from vintage dealer Marilyn Glass via 1stdibs.com. I’m in love. As much as I like Todd, […]

Thanksgiving is my least favorite holiday. There’s too much food and football, and a dearth of costumes, confetti and candy dioramas. I was happy to shake things up by going to a restaurant instead of having dinner at home. So happy, in fact, that I celebrated by wearing something other than my jeans-and-t-shirt uniform. What […]

Right before Snakes on a Plane came out five years ago, a friend and I were so swayed by the pre-opening online hype that we bet MrB that the movie would be a mega-blockbuster. Well, it turned out that the hype was just hype. According to IMDB, the movie’s domestic gross barely topped the production […]

While checking out the latest entries in my Polyvore contest, I started wishing I could do a little shopping. Polyvore’s goals achieved! Unfortunately, the suede and tulle Fendi shoe that was at the top of my list is sold out. There’s another tulle style on Bluefly but it’s not doing it for me. This ruffled […]

Yoox is selling one-of-a-kind Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal pieces. I want them all, especially this dress, described as “silk crepe that is decorated with old 33 and 45 vinyl records. The records have been colored, then heat-modeled in order to contour the body.”  Fan-fucking-tastic! But it’s $8,775. If I were 25 years younger and famous […]

I have a weakness for trompe l’oeil clothing: Trompe l’oeil stitched motorcycle jacket Trompe l’oeil safety pin skirt Trompe l’oeil zipper dress Trompe l’oeil ribbon neckline dress Trompe l’oeil Lego dress But I don’t like wearing a “crisp white shirt.” The fact that a “crisp white shirt” is supposed to be a wardrobe staple irks […]
