Hi Friends, Are you excited about the biggest show of the year? The Academy Awards is tonight! We are having our own oscar party at home to entertain our friends and watch together. We are going Hollywood tonight and all wearing something that touches on a bit of a red carpet look. It's great fun. I am asking for your help. I have a few Bob Mackie Choices in my wardrobe.
