What to Wear Where: Won’t you be my Valentine?

Guest Diary
Hearts and flowers, romance and ribbons, saints and angels — massacres, whippings, sacrifice and sinners, all in the name of love, love, love! Many legends surround the origins of the clearly carnal celebration known as St. Valentine’s Day. In ancient Rome they feted the feast of Lupercalia, with the high priest sacrificing goat and dog.

Schulenberg’s Page: New York, Part CLXXXIX

Guest Diary
1970 was certainly turning out to be competitive with the Sixties as to excitement! Underground Weatherman bombings were continuing along with Anti-War protests and general feelings of hostility toward Nixon’s government! But not by everyone.

American Lady: The Life of Susan Mary Alsop

Guest Diary
Susan Mary Alsop (1918-2004) was a society beauty who morphed into a great saloniste and hostess, but the best reason I found to read this 193-page biography is that it chronicles a low-battery marriage, a torrid romance with a married womanizer and, after the deaths of her husband and lover, a second marriage to a […]...
