  • Bob is back!

    Hello Mackie lovers! As we struggle through winter with one big storm after another we must rally on and believe that spring will come!  Let's fantasize, shall we?  What is your favorite thing about spring?  Mine is a pergola that we have in the front yard.  It's covered in wisteria and in the spring for about three full weeks there are tons of lovely, heavenly scented blossoms all over it.   This is Ivo, myself and the kids standing in front of it last Easter.... currently it's covered in snow!

  • Wear it well Wednesday.... casual dressing for fall

    What is your favorite thing about fall?  Is it a late night bonfire, the gorgeous changing colors of the leaves, the wonderful cool temperatures, the fun of looking for the perfect pumpkin or all of the above?  This is the most colorful time of the year.  Dressing is fun for this season... it should be fun.  We are all inspired by the gorgeous colors.  No one enjoys the inspiration of color like Bob Mackie.  If you love to soak up the muted tones of the fall Bob has the answer for you.  Have you experienced Bob's Smart Denim line?  If...
