If at first you don't succeed, try and try again. (Wear this when posting any comments to this site!)

Did you ever make fun of the Flashdance look? Don't you feel sheepish about ever poking fun, since this week, we all again see the sublime beauty and wisdom of combining the various charms of The Little Match Girl, an heiress on the run from revolutionaries, ballerinas at the barre, a punk rocker, and the woman who frankly just doesn't give a damn what you think about what she threw on this morning?

Reach your hand into your closet, pull out an armful of stuff you never wear anymore, and put it all on at once. It might look gorgeous.

Not just comments. Also submit questions about what you should wear this very second, or soon, and I'll draw you a picture.

Wow, are you Emily Richards from the New Yorker? Can I hire you to do other kinds of cartoons, party invites, etc?

If you are falling in love and kind of freaked out about it and bummed to be stuck in new york city in august and not quite sure where your career is going and want to feel pretty and thin and confident like right now what should you wear?

I reached into my closet and put on a bunch of belts (that's what I grabbed) went into the street feeling sexy and spent the night in jail for indecent exposure...

Thank you for your comments. First, to anonymous: Yes, I am, and yes, you can. Send me an email at

Unowho, there IS a particular length of skirt and cut of blouse and palette that goes best with your situation (in love, in the the city, and in crisis about work.) Since your request was urgent, I will give you the text version now, but check the site later to see an outfit designed and drawn especially for you to wear this very second.

In brief: sensual and highly individual. In other words, listen more to your own faint whims and preferences. If you have the fleeting thought that you might like to wear lemon yellow, wear it. After all, you're not quite sure where your career is going and you are freefalling in love, so you might as well have masterful sway over what you're wearing.

Consider especially the pleasures of airy fabrics in unusual colors,. But maybe that's just me. Maybe YOUR heart of hearts is whispering "khaki twill."

And to "dear jeepers": You're adorable. xo
