We're still on vacation in Thailand and I have a great group of guest posts scheduled for this week. Here's a fine way to start your Monday: a Behind the Blog feature with the gorgeous Wendy Brandes, jewelry designer and blogger with a unique sense of style and wit. I am sure most of you are already fans of her blog, which she began to promote her namesake jewelry line, but if you haven't, I urge you to check it out right away. Read on to learn more about her...

Five Questions for My Favorite Bloggers

Who are you?

I'm Wendy Brandes, but since you say I can use a pseudonym, description or other creative answer, I'm going to ask that your readers call me "Wendy Brandes, Mistress of Pain."

Where are you?


On a bed that is covered with leopard-print sheets. Really! The bed is based in New York.


The lady has a thing for leopard-print ;)

What is the concept behind your blog?

I started my Wendy Brandes Jewelry blog to promote my jewelry , but I thought non-stop promotion would be too boring to read regularly. So I also write about fashion, dogs, feminism, royal ladies and things that annoy me. I've come close to getting all of these topics into a single post.

When you are not blogging, what else do you enjoy doing?

When I'm not doing my jewelry blog, I'm often found at my other blog for the Francis clothing line. Also I spend a lot of offline time with other bloggers. When I'm not doing either of those things, I enjoy staring into space and trying to remember what life was like before blogging.

More importantly… what are you wearing? :)

Keep in mind that I'm lying on a leopard-sheeted bed. Therefore, I'm glamorously dressed in a Madonna concert t-shirt from 1990 and gym shorts. If I ever get out of bed, I'll probably wear black Acne jeans, a black Michael Stars t-shirt and my hairy, purple Versace jacket. Something about that jacket sometimes inspires people to rudely tell me that they don't like my jacket. Too bad! I like it. I started wearing it even more frequently just to annoy the haters.

Wondering if the Madonna T goes with the Madonna photo in WendyB's bedroom. (she said she got one on one of her trips ;))

And LOVE hair purple jackets. Was a little worried there wondering if it was the D & G one.
