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.

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 […]
