Last week, MrB and I went to dinner with friends at a not-very-special restaurant. I decided to wear a special outfit anyway — one that was put together during last year’s wardrobe therapy with Stacy Lomman. Stacy wanted to find a way to show off an Ossie Clark piece that I bought in London in […]

When I had the chance to wear my highly flammable, oversize, costume-store-purchased pirate shirt to an Adam Ant concert last year, I had a Family Guy moment. In the Family Guy episode “Boys Don’t Cry,” the Griffin family is on the run from people who think baby Stewie is possessed by the devil. Stewie dresses […]

In the past 10 days, I’ve worn outfits #11, #12 and #13 from my wardrobe therapy project with designer/stylist/blogger Stacy Lomman. Stacy has been trying to break me of my dependence on black tops. The black tops don’t always look bad, of course, but it’s interesting to mix it up. For instance, I’ve worn a […]

Sexy runway shows — and celebrity red-carpet choices — have convinced some people that every Versace design is scandalously flesh-baring, but, as I’ve written before, there are plenty of conservative options. I still have the sober Versace pantsuits I wore to work at Lehman Brothers between 2000 and 2005. I also have a knee-length purple […]

I’m still showing off results from my continuing wardrobe therapy with designer/blogger Stacy Lomman. Outfits #8 and #9 both incorporate black skirts. The skirt for #8 came from a lightweight black Dolce & Gabbana suit; I previously wore it in a Stacy-styled outfit on election night. Fashion experts have been saying, “Split up your suits […]

Designer Stacy Lomman, who has been giving me wardrobe therapy, was flummoxed by one characteristic of my closet: a dearth of tops and a plethora of bottoms. She expected to find twice as many tops as bottoms, but I had the reverse. Tops are usually the hot item in stores. She explained, “It’s just easy […]

As I’ve mentioned many times, I’ve seen Madonna on every tour she’s done since 1985, when I skipped my high-school prom to see her at Radio City. For quite a while, I’ve seen her twice on each tour. She usually plays a string of dates in New York and I realized that whenever I went […]

The Yelawolf concert/nor’easter on Wednesday kicked my ass. I was knocked out with a bad cold for days. Fortunately, I was able to pull myself together to go to a screening of Silver Linings Playbook last night. Knowing that I had a Stacy Lomman-styled outfit to wear helped me get out of bed. As I […]

Early yesterday morning, I went to vote at my local Mormon church. It was mayhem. The lines weaved in and out of the pews so that confused people were constantly getting on the wrong queue; instead of the voting machines we had in the past, we got SAT-like forms with bubbles to color in with […]

When I first graduated from college, I was very practical. My wardrobe was all about the basics: black, black and more black.  Then, about 10 years ago, I decided I had enough basics and I started to collect “statement” items. Especially funny ones. I do like to laugh. Crazy dresses, like the vintage Moschino seen […]
