I was so excited to see this 1980s photo of Madonna. Not only is she wearing her famous Maripolitan rubber bangles, but she’s wearing matching rubber earrings. @madonna #madonna 📷 by @richardcorman #richardcorman #1983 #80s #madonna80s #queenofpop #thequeenofpop #theresonlyonequeen #madonnafamily #rebelheart #theonlyonequeenmadonna #👑 A photo posted by The Only One Queen Madonna 👑 (@_the_only_one_queen_madonna_) on […]

I’m quite proud of my habit of keeping pop-culture ephemera, such as this program from Madonna’s 1987 AIDS benefit concert and a Duran Duran ticket stub from the same year. However, my high-school friend Jim Begala wins the prize for keeping everything. Jim previously confirmed the exact date of a 1984 INXS concert for me, […]

I went into jewelry designing full-time in 2005, and I did a lot of small trunk shows and private sales right up until the financial crash of 2008. Some of the shows were in homes of friends and family, others were in hotels. This photo from January 2006 was taken in the home of a […]

Ten years ago tonight, I wore a vintage Clovis Ruffin dress, my gold Cleopatra earrings and a whole lot of extra hair to my New Year’s Eve celebration at Balthazar. Normally, I love a 10-year fashion-anniversary opportunity. But tonight, I’m wearing a (new-to-me) secondhand dress that, with the right hair and makeup, is intended to […]

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 […]

I’ve been wondering what year I got the Zang Toi sweater that I wore to an event in October. I could have asked Zang; I was just lazy about doing it. But now I’ve found a photo of the sweater and matching skirt from September 2005. Woot! It’s officially homegrown vintage! I never wore the […]

I feel like I wore my gold, one-sleeved, vintage dress recently but, according to photo evidence, “recently” was seven years ago.  Here I am in 2008 with my friend Melissa at the Committee to Protect Journalists awards dinner. I got this dress at Allan & Suzi’s vintage/consignment store in 2004.  I wore it to the […]

Last night, while scrolling through Instagram, I was stopped cold by the IG handle “lamer.” I thought, “Who the hell would call themselves ‘lamer’? And lamer than what? Is there a ‘lame’ and ‘lamest’?” Then I realized this was the account for the fancy skin-care company called La Mer. Bwah! You’d think someone in La […]

I’m having a belated, band-related fashion trauma! Ten days ago, I saw Duran Duran for the first time since 1987. The band was at Terminal 5 in New York to support their new album, Paper Gods, and my designing friend Stacy Lomman and I were there in the second row. That day, I deeply regretted […]

Elle put together a photo gallery called “Princess Diana’s Most Underrated Style Moments” and it’s pretty great. As Elle points out, many of her looks would be on-trend now, including her “boyfriend” sweater with a skirt. The only thing that hasn’t come back in a high-fashion way is that 1980s feathered hair.
