Love history? Love fashion? Love fashion history? Then I hope you can still grab New York Magazine’s “What We Wore” special issue (May 16-29, 2016) from the newsstand.  At least some of it is online starting here, but this is one of those editorials that works fantastically in print. The cover line’s subtitle is “Centuries […]

I’ve dressed like a dollar bill. I’ve dressed like a brick wall. But I never dreamed of dressing like a quilt until I saw this vintage Dior dress while window-shopping on Shrimpton Couture’s website. If I had this dress, I’d need someone to change Family Guy’s “Guiltyyyyyyy” soundbite to “Quiltyyyyyyy.”

When I worked at CNN in the mid-1990s, a colleague liked to serenade me with “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” by The Smashing Pumpkins. That’s the one with the lyrics that go, “Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage.” I guess that tells you all you have to know about […]

Thanks to a friend’s last-minute invitation, I wound up at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame‘s 2016 induction ceremony at Barclays Center last Friday. It was an incredibly entertaining night in a batshit-crazy kind of way. First of all, an awards show where presenters and honorees can swear as much as they like and […]

Once again, I missed something great on 1stdibs.com. Check out this topless jacket by Moschino! If I had this, I’d wear my 2010 Lady Gaga concert t-shirt under it. This reminds me that I’ve been meaning to make some platinum nipple jewelry. Note to self! UPDATED TO ADD: I can’t BELIEVE I wrote about this […]

I always thought I was missing an old photo of the vintage Lillie Rubin dress that I wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Feb. 28. While looking for a different picture, I found it! This is from May 2006. I don’t know what event I wore it to that year. But I’m now […]

If you heard a piercing scream when Spotlight won Best Picture at last night’s Oscars … that was me. I had practically given up hope because MrB kept saying, “Oh, The Revenant is going to win.” I was also jumping up and down over Mad Max‘s six awards (I thought it deserved Best Director too).  […]

I’ve always had a love for trompe l’oeil clothing. Fashion that makes me laugh! That’s what I’m all about. Back in 2009, I had a dress with a big faux zipper down the back. I wore that to a fashion show that featured a vomiting front-row attendee and a fainting runway model.  In other words, […]

I planned to wear my traditional Moschino heart dress for Valentine’s dinner with MrB, only to realize at the last minute that the dress was at the cleaner’s. Alas! I was thrown off by the clothing surprise, but, on the plus side, I was inspired to wear a vintage Donald Brooks piece that I first […]
