Tweet Tomorrow is the last day to see the Charles James exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, and if you can squeeze it in, it’s definitely worthwhile. I went today and realized that photos of James’s uniquely structured ballgowns do not the work justice. That didn’t stop me from taking my own […]

Tweet Our gorgeous friend Jolie Hunt invited me and MrB to the launch party for her marketing and communications firm, Hunt & Gather, earlier this week. (Is that a great company name, or what?) The event was on a former Navy ship named the Baylander, which was docked at Pier 5 in Brooklyn for the […]

Tweet I have a new obsession: collages of the same outfit in different years. I’ve always shown the outfit photos on my blog, but last month I decided to make some into collages and now I can’t stop!

Tweet If you follow my personal Instagram, you know that I’ve been doing a bit of traveling lately. I’m currently in Athens, where I admired the Acropolis from a rooftop restaurant last night. I wore a vintage tiger-striped Clovis Ruffin dress that I got in 2008. (It was a maxi but I hemmed it.) I […]

Tweet As if there had been any doubt, tonight’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala proved that the attendees of this event are very comfortable with “pretty.” Last year’s gala, which celebrated the opening of the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, should have inspired a lot of fun theme dressing, but with a few […]

MrB, gorgeous designing friend Stacy Lomman and I put on our party clothes and drove to Philly for the celebration. I’m a big fan of Kelly, who died — too young, of AIDS — […]

Tweet I braved yesterday’s late spring chill in an age-inappropriate Stephen Sprouse mini. This is what happens when one hasn’t done the laundry OR the dry cleaning in a very long time. What Wendy Wore “Pillow sweater”: Dsquared (purchased at Chalk, 2012) Skirt: Vintage Stephen Sprouse (possibly purchased in 2006) Boots: Prada (2008) Lipstick: Pleasure […]

Tweet As I’ve mentioned before, I’m the chairman of the board of alumni trustees of the Columbia Daily Spectator, Columbia University’s student newspaper. Every February, the Spectator has a big awards dinner. We always have high-profile keynote speakers. Recent ones have included Arianna Huffington (Joan Didion presented an award at that dinner as well); Julius […]
