Ten years ago this month, on a visit to Scotland, I learned it isn’t always wise to grab a bull by the horns. Meet Hamish. Hamish the Highland cattle was one of several interesting animal-related sights in Scotland. I immediately sought out the statue of Greyfriars Bobby, a Skye terrier who supposedly spent 14 years […]

I’ve discovered yet more photos from my 1983 school trip to Hailsham, England. Here’s a good before-and-after pairing. The photo on the left was taken before our departure. It looks like I’ve got on the same head-to-toe outfit I wore here: hot pink Izod shirt, pleated jeans and those appalling Capezio jazz shoes.  The photo […]

I am STILL looking for that photo of me and Roger Daltrey in England in 1983. I keep finding more photos from that trip, but no Roger yet. WTF. I must have put the picture in a “safe place.” I wish I’d stop putting things there, because the “safe place” and the “Bermuda Triangle” are […]

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 […]

In 1982, when I was in high school, the Who went on a farewell tour. My gorgeous but strict mother, BarbaraB, wouldn’t let me go to the New Jersey show. I cried and cried because, after all, it was a FAREWELL TOUR! My last chance EVER to see The Who! Last chance, that is, until […]

Gladiator sandals really are the shoe of the moment. After writing about them in yesterday’s post, I spotted them in today’s New York Observer. This look is going to be wildly overdone this season, but I’m going to take advantage of its pervasiveness and stock up on styles so I have them to wear when […]

I brought home my late, great Pekingese Mr. Chubbs from the city pound on May 10, 1996. At my apartment, I placed him on a new dog pillow and put a chew toy next to him. We contemplated each other for a while. I’m always nervous on the first day with a new pet. I […]

I’m pleased to see that US Magazine says white pantsuits are hot. I can shop my closet for that look. I have a white Versace pantsuit that I bought in 2003. The most recent photo I have of it is from 2007 and the picture is really tiny! Time to bring it out again and […]

The title of this post refers to Mad Men and sandals, not Mad Men and the “gladiators in suits” populating Scandal. I admit that I have only seen one episode of Scandal, but I’ll have time to catch up now that MrB and I have gotten 72 episodes of Mad Men out of the way. […]
