The sitcom The Nanny (19931999) starred Fran Drescher as Fran Fine, whose bold wardrobe complemented her extroverted personality. Fran wore clothing by numerous high fashion designers, but Moschino appeared to be her preferred label. Continue reading Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Moschino Couture Jacket

Dress Up My Lindsay By Marika Thunder at Public Access Gallery

Long-haul New Yorker’s (and East Villagers like me, especially) constantly bemoan the fact that Manhattan is becoming increasingly gentrified. The innumerable local-business closures caused by the pandemic have only exacerbated the loss of historical identity in an area that was once arguably the coolest neighborhood in NYC.  When the legendary Rock & Roll boutique Trash & Vaudeville was forced to relocate from St. Mark’s Place after four decades in the same location, it really felt like nothing is sacred. It is a small conciliation then that a new contemporary art gallery, Public Access, opened this past September in the downstairs storefront  formerly occupied by Trash. I recently had the chance to check out the gallery’s current exhibit, a solo show of paintings by artist Marika Thunder entitled Dress Up My Lindsay. The series has an interesting autobiographical backstory for the painter.

Pink Thing of The Day: Lisi Bed By Ottiu

The bedroom is the most important room in my home, because sleeping is my jam, and it is the room where I let the decor most specifically reflect my tastes and personality. Is my bed pink? Hell yes, it is; but sadly my bed is not quite as fantastically pink as this bed you see pictured here, which is called the Lisi Bed. I first learned of the Lisi Bed via an email, and when I requested further information on this righteous bed — because I knew I had to feature it — the manufacturer sent me the press release noted below. Read on.

Like Sleeping on a Cloud

Virna Lisi started her film career in her early teens in Rome. Though Lisi turned down a role in From Russia with Love, the Hollywood producers were scouting a new Marilyn Monroe, so Lisi debuted in Hollywood comedy movies. Inspired by the Hollywood Golden Era vibes, Ottiu designers conceived the mid-century modern Lisi bed. Structured in walnut wood, its curved headboard is dressed up in a smooth pastel cotton velvet and presents polished brass nails that embellish even more its glamorous design. By featuring the Mid-century Modern Lisi bed, you will have the inviting bedroom you always dreamt about.” They are not kidding.

It is so beautiful. The Lisi Bed was designed by a group of designers in-house at Ottiu, a luxury furniture brand which is based in Portugal, has a list price of 4.350,00€ (approximately $5,259). Sigh.

Who Will Win an Oscar On March 2nd? Our Predictions Are In!

It’s no secret that I couldn’t care less about most awards shows – the Grammy’s being a prime example of a formerly held-sacred-by-me tradition that long ago became all about rewarding commercial success over acknowledging artistic merit. But being a huge movie fan, film awards like The Independent Spirit Awards, The Golden Globes and, coming up on March 2nd, The Oscars (whose list of nominees can be found at This Link) are the nights of ceremonial award giving that I shamelessly indulge in. Because to me, those awards are still more about the art than the box office returns.
