Hello all! How is the week going for you? Who is sick of this dreaded heat on the east coast? I think my chickens were even sweating today! I continue on highlighting another must have for fall as recommended by 'in the know' folks of the fashion world. That would be something "drapy". Have you ever worn something drapy?

Back in those days, this was...

Maybe this little number for pool side: No? Maybe for that 'black tie' pool party affair? Okay, I'm kidding! The faux diamonds may get in the way of a swan dive. Actually this was a costume that Bob Mackie designed for one of the shows in Las Vegas. Beautiful isn't it? On a more serious note... back to the bathing suit. I...

I was in New York last week to catch up on the newest creations from Bob Mackie. Bob's creativity and artistic eye never cease to amaze me. As I left, stimulated by the gorgeous designs that he has created I was more aware of how we enjoy beautiful designs in nature every day. Just like the variegated greens and ivory of a hosta leaf: It's easy to see why Bob Mackie is so inspired by nature... the patterns are all around us and let me tell you, it's a celebration of pattern for June and August. Here are some sneak...
