Tweet MrB and I recently had dinner with friends at Ouest, a good restaurant on the Upper West Side. If you’re in New York City, I recommend that you check it out. It’s not too formal; you can definitely wear jeans. However, I dressed up a little bit, just because it was one of those […]

Tweet If you follow my personal Instagram, you know that I’ve been doing a bit of traveling lately. I’m currently in Athens, where I admired the Acropolis from a rooftop restaurant last night. I wore a vintage tiger-striped Clovis Ruffin dress that I got in 2008. (It was a maxi but I hemmed it.) I […]

Tweet Tom Ford’s kimono-inspired Spring/Summer 2003 collection for Gucci was so sex-ay! I always wanted one of the printed mini dresses. In case you’re looking for a gift for me, one of the dresses has turned up on 1stdibs.com. The cut-out back reminds me of back of the Fiorucci dress I loved so much in […]

Tweet When I graduated from college and entered the working world — a long time ago — I bought into the notion that it was good to stock a wardrobe with basic black. Supposedly, if everything you had looked the same, no one would know how many or how few clothes you had, how often […]

Tweet I braved yesterday’s late spring chill in an age-inappropriate Stephen Sprouse mini. This is what happens when one hasn’t done the laundry OR the dry cleaning in a very long time.

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 The real winner of the Grammys was Pharrell’s hat, and now designer Vivienne Westwood is winning too. After the hat was identified as a style introduced by Westwood in 1982 and featured in the video for Malcolm McLaren’s early hip-hop classic “Buffalo Gals,” the website for Westwood’s online World’s End shop crashed because of […]

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 For my New Year’s Eve dinner with 15 friends at Balthazar last night, I got out a vintage Versace dress that I haven’t worn since I rang in the year 2008 at my combination New Year’s/40th birthday party. The dress is from a 1992 Versace collection. When I got it in 2007, I was […]

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. This one-of-a-kind dress by one of my favorite designers, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, features a […]
