SEND IT BACK TO SAN FRANCISCO?

SEND IT BACK TO SAN FRANCISCO?

  On the first leg of the book tour, somewhere between Vancouver and San Francisco, Air Canada destroyed my Rimowa suitcase. I left it with the baggage handler in grand shape and it came down the conveyer belt three hours later battered, bruised, missing a wheel and with a huge dent in it. It looked… Read More

PARISIAN ENVY

PARISIAN ENVY

There is really not much to say.  They eat dessert and stay thin. They don’t get facelifts but look great until they get toe tagged. They have better sex, better kitchens and better motto jackets. They only have three things hanging in their closet but manage to always look perfect. They have something to teach… Read More

CULOTTES – SPLIT DECISION

CULOTTES – SPLIT DECISION

If you live long enough you get to see many trends come and go.  I was alive and trending, (or so I thought) in the 80’s when culottes last reared their schizophrenic legs. The skirt/pants combo actually dates back to the eighteen hundreds. The culotte was created as a way to be appropriate and comfortable… Read More

WHO LIVES THERE?

WHO LIVES THERE?

I am tired of telling stories from the book tour tonight. If anyone is interested you can click here for an update on our time at Square Books and Thacker Mountain Radio. Last week we were in Oxford, Mississippi. Two days before the football game. The energy and enthusiasm were starting to build. But I have blogged… Read More

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
