Tweet I like to look over the obituaries in the print edition of the New York Times — there are a lot of interesting stories there. Today, I couldn’t help noticing this beautiful face in the paid death notices section. Figuring this lady had to have been an actress, I glanced at the information: died […]

Tweet When I was hanging out with my designing friend Zang Toi on July 4th, I showed him some old pictures of us together. One of the photos was in this post from 2008 and, as I looked at it, I decided another picture in the same post captured one of my favorite fashion moments […]

Tweet I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer day, complete with everything I loved about summer in the 1980s: pool floats, snake-patterned bathing suits and teased-up hair. Well, maybe not the teased-up hair. That never went well with pools.

Tweet My mother’s mother, Ruth Kay, died last night. She was 95 years old. Her grandchildren called her “Nanny” when they were young, then “Nan.” Her three great-grandchildren knew her as “G.G.” for “great-grandma.” Nan’s husband, Sam, aka “Papa,” died of a heart attack in 1983. Papa died just a few weeks before my 16th […]

Tweet After I did yesterday’s post on “dresses through the years,” I did a collage of the oldest dress — a Versace — for Facebook. Here it is. Click to enlarge! That inspired me to do another collage for Throwback Thursday with an even older dress. This leopard-print Diane von Furstenberg has been on the […]

Tweet A lot of high schools had their graduation ceremonies last week, so for Throwback Thursday, I’ll go way back to my graduation in 1985. This was the public school whose newspaper adviser censored my music review because it mentioned homosexuality. Before that, some bitch teacher tried to keep me out of the National Honor […]

Tweet Twenty-five years ago this month, I went to Paris for the first time.  It was chilly and breezy during my stay. Here I am huddled in my denim jacket, wearing the leggings I wore all over Europe that summer. You can see the front view of the outfit here. I also went to London, […]

This year is a big anniversary for my own graduation from Columbia University, which took place on May 17, 1989. I can’t stand to say the actual number of years […]

Tweet I keep flipping through photos from my first trip to England in 1983, hoping to find the picture of my encounter with Roger Daltrey. I kept passing over one in which I was standing by a life-size model of a old-time train conductor; the white t-shirt I was wearing in the shot didn’t interest […]
