Tweet The unusually cold and snowy winter we’ve had in New York City had me eager to do one of my Huffington Post fashion round-ups about stylish puffer (aka puffa) jackets, but it wasn’t meant to be. I didn’t get as many volunteers as I would like. Maybe I’ll try again next year. There should […]

Tweet Yesterday, when I wrote (again!) about my enduring fondness for ’80s-style single earrings, I mentioned that I am sometimes more subtly influenced by my love of ’80s fashion. For instance, I was unexpectedly taken down an ’80s path by the floral-printed Givenchy handbag that hyp-mo-tized me during Thanksgiving window-shopping. This weekend, my gorgeous mother, […]

Tweet I love browsing the vintage clothes on 1stdibs for wild pieces like the Versace dress I blogged this weekend. I recently found two designs that are soooo Jackie Kennedy, without the pillbox hats. Actually, they’re way more literal than that.

Tweet If I had $7,500 to spend on a dress, I would get this Gianni Versace Couture design from 1991. The colors! The print! It’s so Gianni. I love the belled shape of the skirt and the sex-ay back. I’m sure that it’s magic and that if I wore it, I’d look exactly like a […]

Tweet The news that designer Jeremy Scott has been named creative director at ever-whimsical Moschino, one of my favorite fashion houses, reminded me of an item I had lurking in my blog drafts.
