WEIGHING IN

WEIGHING IN

  I’m sitting on a Jet Blue flight bouncing around in the air somewhere over Kansas. I’m beginning three months of on and off book touring.  I have Paul Williams sitting next to me happily eating some coffee ice cream.  He will be unhappy that I divulged that, but he is presently handing over half… Read More

THE WEEK THAT WAS

THE WEEK THAT WAS

It’s too long a week and I just posted this over at Gratitude and Trust. It is exactly what I would post here, but I have to get some sleep. This has been one of the most invigorating, exciting weeks I can remember.  Read about it here. And lots of travel blogging when I hit… Read More

JUST ASK

JUST ASK

It’s finally the end  of Fashion Week in New York. That frantic, fashiony, see and be seen, make it or break or just fake it time for designers- known and unknown to convince us what we should be wearing in the spring. Which inevitably will  be the exact opposite of what we are wearing now. Not… Read More

JOAN RIVERS – NOT LONG ENOUGH

JOAN RIVERS – NOT LONG ENOUGH

  The news just came through that Joan Rivers died today.  I was wondering what to write and then I thought I couldn’t do any better than this blog I did on her when I saw her documentary four years ago. I don’t watch TV much, but last week Lucy and I watched Fashion Police as… Read More

ON YOUR MARK GET SET – TOSS

ON YOUR MARK GET SET – TOSS

Recently my daughter Taylor told me I should do a blog telling people how to organize their lives. I told her I thought I did that. She said, you need to tell them how get rid of stuff and keep it all tidy. I found this remarkable as my OCD, everything has a place mantra… Read More

KEEP IT SIMPLE

KEEP IT SIMPLE

I have always admired people who adopt a uniform as a way of dressing. Not only is it a signature statement, it makes life much easier. Long before it was chic to wear white pants in the winter, my friend Bobby Levithan could always be counted on to show up in white jeans and a… Read More

SOMETIMES  DEMONS HAVE THE LOUDEST VOICES

SOMETIMES  DEMONS HAVE THE LOUDEST VOICES

I didn’t know Robin Williams. I met him a few times. “How do you do?” No eye contact. He politely turned away. He was not a one on one person; that is well documented. He was most comfortable in front of a crowd, where he could unleash his demons. There they became his friends and retreated… Read More

NET-A-PORTER REACHES OFFLINE

NET-A-PORTER REACHES OFFLINE

I was a total Net-A-Porter junkie long before the kind folks at the powerhouse online retailer wined and dined me last week in the Hamptons. I have often said, and without provocation, I think Net –A- Porter is the best department store in the world; be it online or bricks and mortar.  All you have… Read More

BLAKE – THIS ONE’S FOR YOU

BLAKE – THIS ONE’S FOR YOU

As anyone who has followed this blog for any length of time knows, my very best friend, who I had known since I was two, died suddenly five years ago today. Every year on the anniversary of his death I do some form of a tribute to him. This year’s might be hard to top.… Read More

ROBERT WILSON’S NIGHT

  The Watermill Center  is a large fulltime school and research facility owned and run by theatrical and visual visionary and all around artistic Guru Robert Wilson. Every summer celebrities, artists, Kuwaiti princesses and the Hampton residents who love to rub elbows or some appendage with them flock to his annual event. The event is… Read More

THAT CHICKEN THOUGH

THAT CHICKEN THOUGH

A few weeks ago I said I would publish the recipe for Richard Olney’s Chicken Gratin. I thought I might be able to cut corners and just put up a link to it. However, while there are Richard Olney recipes to be found online, this is not one of them. I was happy to see… Read More

WHATEVER GETS YOU THROUGH THE SUMMER

WHATEVER GETS YOU THROUGH THE SUMMER

Back in the summer of 2012 I did a blog on things I liked that summer.  Clothes, food, cosmetics, the usual trivial pleasures that occupy far too much space in my brain.  But several people had commented “Do more of these.”  Which I actually never did. So two years later – mid summer 2014, I’m… Read More

KENDALL CONRAD

KENDALL CONRAD

  I grew up with a divine girl called Kendall Conrad. Well, let’s reword that… I didn’t actually grow up with her. I grew up in the same town she did and our families were friends. She is  younger than I am. So chronologically I grew up first. We hope.  We’re not sure.  I got… Read More

SNIPPETS OF SUMMER

SNIPPETS OF SUMMER

I have been writing this blog for so long now I feel like I must end up repeating myself.   And I am a creature of a certain kind of habit.  I consistently respond to the same things, or perhaps I respond the same things with consistency. Like the things that make up my summer.… Read More
