Tweet In 2012, I invented my Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award and bestowed it upon Piper Perabo and her sheer ballgown at the Golden Globes. You can’t just wear a pretty dress to win this prestigious award! Your look has to be interesting too. Being controversial is a big plus. I enjoy a […]

Tweet I posted an eye-catching vintage dress by Versace’s diffusion label, Versus, earlier this month. Gorgeous designer/blogger/stylist/neighbor/BFF Stacy Lomman took notice and paid me a visit with a big Versace book in hand. She thought she spotted the Versace season that was then re-interpreted by Versus. While I flipped through the book admiring the photos […]

Tweet I started this blog five years ago today. In my initial post, I warned that I wouldn’t be blogging much. Two days later, I discovered Britney Spears had “borrowed” one of my rings without permission. Of course, I had to share that online, and after that, I couldn’t stop. Since then, I’ve changed the […]

Tweet I started my blog five years ago this month with the motto “Wear What You Want,” but sometimes I have to draw the line and admit that there’s a style that I truly despise. I’ve already drawn the line at a particularly horrible Herve Leger bandage dress with cutouts, but now I’m ready to […]

Tweet I started watching the red-carpet coverage of the Screen Actors Guild Awards yesterday, but nothing caught my eye, so I moved on. Too many of the same pale shades we saw at the Golden Globes for me. I did see actress Rose Byrne being interviewed, but close-up only, so I just gave her bangs […]

Tweet I’m giving my newly invented Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award for the Golden Globes red carpet to Piper Perabo. The oversize skirt made her sheer ballgown from Theyskens’ Theory Spring 2012 collection fit for a queen. This is the kind of red-carpet dressing I like. Beautiful, risky and totally memorable. Designer Olivier […]

Tweet I started this blog in 2007 with the motto “Wear What You Want.” As I explain in my FAQ: “I chose ‘Wear What You Want’ as my blog’s motto because I want people to know the style rules … and then break them! Forget the self-appointed fashion police who snark on anyone who shows […]

Tweet I relish an excuse for theme dressing. You can count on me to wear a heart dress on Valentine’s Day, an earring from an ’80s Madonna video to a Madonna concert and Gaga rings to a Lady Gaga concert. When MrB retired from his job at the Wall Street Journal in 2007, I wore […]
