I have a weakness for trompe l’oeil clothing: Trompe l’oeil stitched motorcycle jacket Trompe l’oeil safety pin skirt Trompe l’oeil zipper dress Trompe l’oeil ribbon neckline dress Trompe l’oeil Lego dress But I don’t like wearing a “crisp white shirt.” The fact that a “crisp white shirt” is supposed to be a wardrobe staple irks…
Balmain for Eight Crazy Nights
When I first glimpsed this studded Balmain tank top in Bergdorf Goodman, I thought it had a menorah on it. Furtive cell phone photo Now I can’t get this Adam Sandler song out of my head. That song is really very educational. I like that David Lee Roth is first on Sandler’s list of menorah-lighting…

Laughing While Crying
I didn’t get a chance to post this yesterday, so here is the sleeveless turtleneck I was wearing on 9/11/01, when I worked in the World Financial Center, across the street from the World Trade Center. I didn’t keep it as a memento. I just wear clothes for a really long time. I did get…
