  • Let's fantasize!

    Okay my friends, I'm over it!  There, I've said it.  I'm talking about the weather.  I'm not usually one to complain about the weather, but this winter is lasting forever!!!  It just doesn't seem to want to end.   It's getting so bad for me that I am looking at pictures of warm sunny beaches just to make myself feel better. So, let's pretend... just a fun little moment to take our minds off of the nasty weather.  If you could go anywhere to escape the cold, damp yucky weather, where would it be?  Here is a nice beach photo...

  • What is Ikat?

    Hello Friends.   I recently had a question about one of Bob’s designs that I thought I would share in case some of you were wondering the same thing.   Monica from New Jersey recently purchased her first Bob Mackie Wearable Art silhouette. She ordered Bob’s Jeweled collar Ikat Print Split Neck Caftan. She loves the dress, and told me that she chose it because of the gorgeous colors and how they create the beautiful design. Her question was what is Ikat? Great question. We don’t all know what that means and it’s a defining feature of this particular caftan. Ikat refers...

  • More winter?

    How much longer?  That is what we have been saying this week at my house... for several reasons.  First of all because little Mr. Groundhog apparently poked his head out of his home to announce more winter days ahead... and then there was storm Maximus that swept through last week.  Oh, that was some fun!  I was in New York City to attend the New York Gift Show.  It was not too bad there, but getting home was nearly impossible and I came home to no power and several casualties in the yard.  Here's a look at my poor trees...
