About & Good Reads

I began my blog in 2010 in order to cover the exhibit “American High Style: Fashioning a National Collection” at the Brooklyn Museum. Since then I have branched out to include interviews, reviews, opinions, the occasional outfit post, and the “How I Wear My” series I co-write with the beautiful and talented Adrienne of The Rich Life in Wine Country. I also write articles on costume design for Clothes on Film, Christopher Laverty’s wonderful site devoted to costume in movies and TV.

Oscar-winning costumes by Catherine Martin for The Great Gatsby. Prada, SoHo, 2013.
