In the nineteenth century, Easter Sunday was an occasion for ladies of all classes to don their most fashionable bonnets.  Some of these bonnets were specially bought for the holiday. Others were old bonnets made up with new trimmings. In either circumstance, Easter bonnets were as essential to celebrating Easter as were eggs and bunnies.  An 1889 edition of the Ladies Home Journal even went so far as to declare that it was “an accepted fact that every woman who can buy or make a...

  It’s a brave woman who lives her life eternally sans knickers (or panties, for you Americans) but until very recently, it was the norm. Though men throughout history wore underwear (Charles ll was a fan of a silken boxer short, FYI), it was considered improper for a lady to have anything between her legs. The Tin Man can’t even face the idea of something between a woman's legs. That is the level of scandal. The only ladies who dared buck this trend were scandalously rich Italian women in...

  Twenty-six years ago, the CBS sitcom The Nanny, starring Fran Drescher in the titular role, made its way into our homes and our hearts. A ’90s-era Mary Poppins by way of Flushing, Queens, Drescher’s Fran Fine was the lady in red when everybody else was wearing neutrals. She brought sequins, feathers, and candy-colored ensembles to the khaki-hued lives of the Sheffield children along with her enthusiasm and razor-sharp wit. She had style! She had flair! And she has since achieved icon status, moving from our...

  As a professional stage manager for more than 17 years, Jen Kahn has seen a lot of theatrical sets—and watched many of them get thrown away. “It broke my heart to see all of that art just go in the trash can,” Kahn says. This waste, combined with her passion for eco-friendly fashion, inspired Kahn to launch Scenery Bags, a line of one-of-a-kind totes, clutches, and fannypacks ($35 to $85) handmade from retired backdrops from Broadway shows like Mamma Mia  and Hairspray. “It’s been really...
