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 […]

Here’s a “What Wendy Wore” outfit for each month of 2015. (I’m not including any of the looks from my “Outfits on Repeat in 2015” post.) Click the photos for the original posts. I felt great in the Zang Toi jacket and faux-garter tights that I wore to Zang’s runway show in February 2014, so […]

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 […]

I’m in love with the Paul Andrew Chrysler-Building boots that I saw in a Bergdorf Goodman catalog. Maybe I can wear them with my Zang Toi gown that depicts the Time Warner Center and the Hearst Tower … … and accessorize with my Taxi and Passenger Maneater ring, which is engraved with the Brooklyn Bridge.

We left London for Paris on Monday, August 3. Paris empties out in August because so many Parisians take a nice long holiday. (Several of our Parisian friends were in New York while we were in their city.) I think everyone who was left in the city was sitting along the Seine that night. Whenever […]

I was in Chicago over the weekend to visit family and attend the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Ill. The festival’s website says Ravinia (named for the Ravinia Park grounds where it is held) is the oldest outdoor music festival in North America. Who knew?! Ravinia isn’t a stand-all-day-to-see-Eminem, Lollapalooza-like event. It’s very civilized. You […]
