When I worked at CNN in the mid-1990s, a colleague liked to serenade me with “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” by The Smashing Pumpkins. That’s the one with the lyrics that go, “Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage.” I guess that tells you all you have to know about […]

Thanks to a friend’s last-minute invitation, I wound up at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame‘s 2016 induction ceremony at Barclays Center last Friday. It was an incredibly entertaining night in a batshit-crazy kind of way. First of all, an awards show where presenters and honorees can swear as much as they like and […]

Once again, I missed something great on 1stdibs.com. Check out this topless jacket by Moschino! If I had this, I’d wear my 2010 Lady Gaga concert t-shirt under it. This reminds me that I’ve been meaning to make some platinum nipple jewelry. Note to self! UPDATED TO ADD: I can’t BELIEVE I wrote about this […]

I always thought I was missing an old photo of the vintage Lillie Rubin dress that I wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Feb. 28. While looking for a different picture, I found it! This is from May 2006. I don’t know what event I wore it to that year. But I’m now […]

If you heard a piercing scream when Spotlight won Best Picture at last night’s Oscars … that was me. I had practically given up hope because MrB kept saying, “Oh, The Revenant is going to win.” I was also jumping up and down over Mad Max‘s six awards (I thought it deserved Best Director too).  […]

I planned to wear my traditional Moschino heart dress for Valentine’s dinner with MrB, only to realize at the last minute that the dress was at the cleaner’s. Alas! I was thrown off by the clothing surprise, but, on the plus side, I was inspired to wear a vintage Donald Brooks piece that I first […]

My Valentine’s Day/anti-Valentine’s Day Jewels of the Month countdown made me postpone a number of outfit posts, so it’s time to catch up on fashion. MrB and I visited Madrid and Pamplona in last month. While MrB spoke to journalism students, I sampled hot chocolate and churros at every opportunity. The lovely Cristina showed me […]

I like slow fashion and homegrown vintage. Here are some of my favorite old looks, re-worn in 2015. Whenever I wear my sex-ay Pilgrim dress by Donald Brooks Couture, I enjoy it so much that I wear it again almost immediately. I originally wore the dress in 2004 to the Committee to Protect Journalists awards […]

Ten years and five days ago, MrB and I attended the big Times Square premiere of the latest King Kong remake. That’s the one that starred Jack Black, Naomi Watts and Adrien Brody. The invitation called for festive attire, so I chose a vintage Ossie Clark dress with a Celia Birtwell print. In my first […]
