Tweet In 2010, I caught a Law & Order rerun in which an actress was wearing the short version of a long Yigal Azrouël dress I own. This week, the episode came around again! Unfortunately, I missed the one chance to get a full-length photo of the dress, but you can see the top of […]

Tweet I recently dug up this photo of me in Dublin in September or October 1997. I’m wearing a vintage Lillie Rubin coat that I got at Allan & Suzi on the Upper West Side. Check out the red-jacket-wearing photobomber in this one, staring at me as if he’d never seen a woman in a […]

Tweet I wrote about this 1980s floral shirt when I wore it in 2010. Since then, it’s become my “hairstyling” shirt. As I mentioned yesterday, I own very few button-front shirts, so every time superstar hairstylist Julie Matos gives me one of her elaborate updos for a party or event, I wear this shirt so […]

Tweet Whenever a celebrity cuts her hair into a pixie — or pretends to — lots of other women are tempted to do the same. Not me, though. I had ultra-short hair for years. I’m pixied out. I previously posted this photo of my supershort 1992 ‘do. But I just rediscovered this photo from 1997. […]

Tweet I wore a pearl choker to Vanity Fair’s Oscar party this year. I wore the choker to the same event in 2006. I was wearing an emerald-green Zang Toi gown which I further accessorized with a beaded, peacock-feather fan and a tux-clad MrB. We also went to the Oscar ceremony that year, and I […]

Tweet For the past 24 hours, I’ve been laughing over the story of a Portland, Ore., man who called 911 after his 22-lb cat went on the rampage. Lux, the cat, scratched the dude’s 7-month-old baby, so the guy kicked Lux in the rear. Lux didn’t take kindly to that and charged the whole family, […]

Tweet My handsome father, GeorgeB, is turning 75 today. The family is getting together for a celebration. GeorgeB is expecting us this time, unlike in 1989, when we threw him a surprise 50th birthday party. Back then, there seemed to be an eternity between me and 50.  Now it’s around the corner. Saying “time flies” […]

Tweet Marc Jacobs will show his Fall 2014 collection tonight at 8 PM at his usual venue: the armory at 68 Lexington Avenue. I wasn’t invited, but I did go to Marc’s shows for several years, thanks to MrB’s job. I think the last one we went to was in September 2007. That show was […]

Tweet The most exciting parts of last night’s Super Bowl for me were Joe Namath’s coin toss and Bruno Mars’s halftime show featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The game interested me less than usual — I wasn’t even sure that was possible — and I was underwhelmed by a lot of the ads. Radio […]

Tweet When I first laid eyes on Henry the Pekingese at the ASPCA in June 2006, I immediately noticed his deformed front paw, shaky back legs and blond eyelashes, in that order. I was still mourning Mr. Chubbs, my elderly Pekingese, who had to be euthanized a few weeks earlier after his lifelong neurological disease […]
