Tweet Exactly twenty years and one day ago today, I was at the five-hour-long GMHC AIDS Dance-a-Thon at the Javits Center in New York. It was my second year at the Dance-a-Thon and I was extremely serious about my fundraising. I was one of those people who went around the office terrorizing people till they […]

Tweet For Throwback Thursday, here I am trying to be Audrey Hepburn in an LBD and updo in November 2003. The yellow-diamond earrings and ring I’m wearing were purchased from my late business partner, before we were partners. I didn’t go into the jewelry business until 2005. I think this is the same, very short, […]

Tweet When my parents moved out of my childhood home last year, they gave me lots of old photos. I was rummaging through those yesterday when I came across a photo of me with my first-ever friend. I was 10 weeks old when that photo was taken. (Teddy was wearing diapers because my father wanted […]

Tweet In honor of tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, the always-highlarious Michael K of the blog Dlisted shared a classic clip from the 1995 VMAs, when Courtney Love threw a MAC compact at Madonna before crashing the latter’s pre-show interview with Kurt Loder. “Courtney Love is in dire need of attention right now,” Madonna observed.

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 […]
