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 […]

The last two times I discovered great boob/butt bows on 1stdibs.com were November 2012 and November 2014. It seems like November is officially boob-and-butt-bow month! Maybe it’s because the holidays are coming, and bows look so festive. Here’s my new find: a boob-bow bustier by one of my favorite designers, Patrick Kelly. I love the […]

I went to a party last night and, as you might have guessed from yesterday’s post, I wore my vintage Zandra Rhodes dress/caftan. Hair-styling goddess Julie Matos of the Warren-Tricomi salon put a lot of thought into the right ‘do for my outfit. Zandra is famous for her bright pink hair … View image | […]

I can’t remember when I bought my hand-painted, vintage Zandra Rhodes dress, but the last photo I have of  me wearing it is from 2006. I believe I wore it a couple of times that year. While searching for some images of Zandra Rhodes, I came across this 2003 picture of Mary-Kate Olsen wearing a […]

Last year, I dug up some 2007 photos of me trying on dresses at fabulous Los Angeles vintage store Decades. I previously posted my try-on photo of a Versace dress, but here are two more. MrB, of course, was crazy about this short, tight Herve Leger bandage dress. I’m so not crazy about it that […]

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 iPhone […]
