Watch in action, the drawings of Best Supporting Actress ~ Viola Davis & Best Actress ~ Ruth Negga’s gowns on the Red Carpet.
We watch and we judge. We judged the performances they gave and the dresses they will wear to receive their accolades. I love the Oscars and I don’t believe I have missed….blah blah blah
Okay, that was my opener BEFORE the Oscars aired last night, so let me start again WHOA! WTH!?? I am over the moon that Moonlight won Best Picture, I adored that movie, no slight to LaLand but Moonlight was magical…..
I loved the Red Carpet, I loved seeing who was with who, and I loved the acceptance speeches. I loved everything about last night’s Oscars as I imagined what might be worn under some of those magnificent dresses that came down the red carpet, and there were … ...Read more
The Body is everywhere. You may choose to call it a bodysuit or a teddy. I call it long overdue and I attribute its resurgence to the bralet. The undeniable consumer embrace of the unconstructed, comfy, wireless bra has given designers permission to take that philosophy further. There is also no better category of intimates so well suited (no pun intended) for wearing “out” than the bodysuit.
There was a time when the bodysuit focus was on wired, controlled, figure enhancing garments worn as much for support and shape as for sexiness, and while they are still a must have for some women, there is a new body being ushered into our lives.
Some of the stand out examples I saw at the Salon de la International Lingerie last month in Paris were from Body & Clyde, which was all about the young, collegiate … ...Read more
“2.5 days”, that was my response to the immigration guy at JFK when he asked me how long I’d been away. He said that I was very precise and chuckled, deciding my trip was too short for me to have done any major shopping, he ushered me through without the usual luggage search. I broke my record for shortest overseas trip, and what it lacked in time it more than made up for it in pleasure. On my last full day i.e my second day in Paris, Ellen invited me to join her at “Lingerie, Mon Amour” a fashion show given by Lingerie Francais showcasing the biggest French lingerie brands. After a bit of a logistics issue we hopped on the first of the buses and left Porte de Versaille and on to the Pavillion Cambon situated on Rue Cambon, one of my favorite streets … ...Read more
I wear mostly black. Perhaps it is the New Yorker in me or perhaps it is the forgiving silhouette it portrays, whatever the reason, I cannot change. I have accepted this and yet I sometimes feel the need to wear more color.
The other day I had the joy of reconnecting for lunch and a stroll with a dear friend I worked with years ago, someone I don’t get to see enough of. It was a cold clear day in NYC and Chelsea was busier than you would think. After lunch she suggested we hit the Pace Gallery to see the Mark Rothko exhibition in its final days, it was bustling and I was happy. Upon entering the gallery, you saw square upon square of varying versions of black… blueish black, reddish black, purplish black, brown black and combinations thereof. I’m no art critic so … ...Read more
Tis the season to party, and there is no better time to show off your lingerie without repercussions, the lines of demarcation between what you sleep in, your underwear and evening wear have never been more blurred….so go for it, break the rules your way, have them talking, be confident in your choice and have fun and be sexy.
Wear your cincher over your t-shirt. Layer your bra over your tank. Wear your balconette bra with a pair of sleek satin pj pants. Wear you slip gown with a little cardigan. Wear your classic button down pj top with a pair of skinny black jeans. Wear your corset with a big skirt (who cares if it so 80’s). Turn your little black garter slip into a little black dress. Layer two satin camisoles in two different colors. I’m sure you can figure it out! The … ...Read more
