Standing O or Hell No: The Grammys 2017

If awards season is a marathon and the Golden Globes is fashion responding to the starting pistol, then the Grammys is fashion at mile 19 clutching its heart and wondering where all the oxygen went.  Except for a few ladies, most choices seemed to be the product of extreme hypoxia to the brain. Adele looked […]

Standing O or Hell No: Golden Globes 2017

I can’t wait until I actually achieve something significant because what I learned on Golden Globes Sunday is that you are a terrifically supportive group!  All day I received messages to this general tune: CONGRATULATIONS! AWARD SEASON IS IN FULL SWING!  It was the functional equivalent of the time my son brought home a life-sized […]

Standing O or Hell No: Janelle Monae

The Palm Springs Film Festival happened last night.  Sadly, though, I was in an eggnog-and-holiday-cookie-induced-coma (of sorts) and could not revive in time to pay proper attention. Today I’ve finally sifted through all the white noise related to Mariah Carey and her NYE debacle and have found the festival’s red carpet arrivals! I think I’ve […]

Standing O or Hell No: Elise Neil

I have a lot of anxiety about tomorrow’s elections because, well, I am going to be horrified regardless of who wins.  And so I am going to lash out the only way I know how: through fashion via this unsuspecting victim, Elise Neil.  This is a classic case of wrong place, wrong time. I get […]

Standing O or Hell No: Emmys 2016

My friend, Jenny, and I were talking about how Awards Season for a fashion addict is pretty much the same thing as an escalating binge for a drug addict.  It starts out mellow and calm with the lead-in film festivals.  Everyone is content and feeling/looking great. (POT!)  Next up are the Emmys.  People are euphoric, […]

Standing O or Hell No: The VMAs

It seems to me that the MTV Video Music Awards pose a similar problem for the music world as casual Fridays pose for the corporate world:  No one is sure exactly what is appropriate to wear.  Do you dress up (it IS an awards ceremony),  or pull a stunt (people like crazy, right?), or act […]

Standing O or Hell No: Margot Robbie

I toyed with naming this post “ferocious animals and whimsical botanicals” (which I’m also considering for the name of my first solo album). It’s a delightful concept for this Gucci gown in that it uses juxtaposition to great effect.  I’ve been staring at this piece for the better part of an hour and I have […]

Standing O? Hell YES!

I’m not even going to toy with your emotions and pretend I debated over this look – because I’m already standing for the O.  I am mesmerized. Thank heavens for ZOOM because I’ve spent endless amounts of time on every quadrant of this stunning Alexander McQueen dress.  It is supremely interesting, exquisitely fashioned, and completely […]

Standing O, So-So or Hell No: The Obamas in Cuba

Little known fact: one of my best friends and I sneaked into Cuba a number of years ago.  We didn’t even attempt clearances because we knew we had no grounds on which to obtain them.  We simply left from the Bahamas, didn’t get our passports stamped, and then prayed to our merciful Lord all would […]

Standing O or Hell No: 88th Annual Academy Awards

As a girl who grew up in rural PA with 7 brothers I am (perhaps overly) familiar with such things as shooting skeet, riding dirt bikes, and quoting The Who.  Regarding the latter, this lyric from Eminence Front was on a loop in my head last night: Won’t you come and join the party Dress […]
