As an floral and decor event designer, I work very hard throughout the year creating gorgeous works for all sorts of events. It's a job that I love because no two events are the same and it allows my creativity to flow. Christmas is the one time of the year that I host my own event where I go all out with the floral and decor… Christmas Even. It's almost become a contest each year of out doing the last. When my guests arrive now they are always so curious to see what the table looks like. We literally remove...

My question for today is, "What do I wear for a snazzy evening out that is spectacular, but not something that we've all seen before?" In a photo, here is my answer: This is Bob Mackie's knee length sequin skirt. I remember seeing this one for the first time in the New York design studio and being lost for words. I was over the moon with it. I thought, boy, Bob Mackie really knows how to keep it fresh. There is so much to love... first of all the use of the panels to give us a slimmer figure....
