Here’s Edie Beale in the original “Grey Gardens,” describing her “best costume for the day,” an insane combo of pantyhose and safety pins. Best costume, indeed.

Love & Sex

Breaking up is never a pleasant experience.

To make matters worse, it seems everybody else is beautiful, photogenic and having The Best Time Ever. READ MORE »


Money

So this morning, I picked up my laundry from the dry cleaners and the bill: $299.58. I’m not kidding. Granted, 1) my lazy-ass boyfriend was in charge and took every article of clothing he owns, and 2) I just moved to the tony Upper East Side of NYC, where dry cleaning a dress costs $18. READ MORE »
