Glamorous show-business events are great for spotting ultra-high-end jewelry, like the 200 carats of Harry Winston diamonds recently worn by Jennifer Lopez at the Golden Globes. But I swear that the place to see the most exciting fine jewelry is at Jewelers of America’s GEM Awards — “the Academy Awards of the fine jewelry industry” […]

MrB and I held our New Year’s Eve dinner for friends at Narcissa, the restaurant at the Standard Hotel in the East Village. As planned, I wore a new-to-me, secondhand dress that I got because of its Klaus Nomi-esque shoulder pads and V-shaped sheer panel in the front. What Wendy Wore Dress: Brian Lichtenberg (purchased […]

New York’s iconic Four Seasons restaurant — which opened in 1959 and for which the term “power lunch” was invented — is being booted from the Seagram Building next year.  I’ve had many birthday dinners there (as well as one dinner with Norman Mailer).  Tonight was the final Four Seasons birthday dinner. We sat in […]

I like slow fashion and homegrown vintage. Here are some of my favorite old looks, re-worn in 2015. Whenever I wear my sex-ay Pilgrim dress by Donald Brooks Couture, I enjoy it so much that I wear it again almost immediately. I originally wore the dress in 2004 to the Committee to Protect Journalists awards […]

Have you heard about the 3-7-14 shopping rule from costume designer Jenn Rogien? I’m sure this is very handy for a lot of people, but I always have trouble following the rules. This summer, I hit the vintage racks at Bond 07 by Selima with my friend Julie Matos, who enjoys playing stylist for me. […]

I went to three journalism-related events in eight days last month! The first was a lunch for the International Women’s Media Foundation’s Courage in Journalism Awards on October 21. The IWMF describes the awards as honoring “women journalists who set themselves apart by their extraordinary bravery,” and this year’s awardees are true heroes. Mwape Kumwenda […]
