In the next ten years, women’s underwear for women will become the ruler

Ten days ago, Lizzo wore a thong to a basketball match. She was sitting courtside as the Lakers played the Timberwolves and her song”Juice” started to play on the stadium’s sound system. So, as Lizzo does, she acquired out of her seat, turned around, bent over and twerked, revealing a cutout in the back of her t-shirt dress that showed off her panties. The crowd cheered, but if Barstool Sports tweeted a clip of the momentary dance party, it ignited a backlash. 1 person wrote:”Not too many people want to…

Wear Happy ~ The Cat’s Pajamas

Around 35 years ago, right after my husband and I bought our first house at the beach, we purchased a print of pink flamingos standing in water. It had a mirrored frame. I, in my ignorance, thought it was a unique deco piece, very kitsch, very cool, and hopefully very valuable. Not too long after we hung it in a prominent spot, I was watching the movie “The Right Stuff” and saw the exact piece hanging on the wall of a motel room scene. Kind of a bummer learning that…

An American Triumph

I had a very Hamiltonian weekend. First, I finished reading Ron Chernow’s biography of this extraordinary man. Then, I listened to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s score for the Broadway hit show. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen it yet. At $900 a ticket I will have to pass. But it doesn’t matter. Being submerged in Alexander Hamilton’s story was an intellectual and creative privilege. Born without an “American” pedigree into an impoverished life, this brilliant immigrant rose to be, not only a Founding Father of our nation, but also the author of the country’s…

Natori Lingerie Births The Flora Bra

I guess by now anyone of you who has the slightest relationship with social media and the internet knows that April the giraffe gave birth to her baby this past weekend. Me, I have been on this story since end March, waiting (like the other 6 million followers) rather impatiently for the big event. After Shirley got me hooked on the live feed, I found myself checking the status of April’s progress more often than I would like to admit. Kudos to Animal Adventure Park in NY for building such…

In the scheme of things, it’s really the small luxuries in life that can alter perspective

This city is full of them; little treats that are singularly expensive but really worth the resulting lift. One doesn’t need a lot of anything to satisfy an appetite for pleasure.In NYC yesterday, while waiting for a latte at an edgy coffee shop on Madison Avenue, I started to contemplate why I was feeling upbeat about spending $4.50 on a cup of coffee. The answer is really simple: in the scheme of things, it’s really the small luxuries in life that can alter perspective. In fact, the current collection surfaces…
