  • Wear it Well Wednesday - vintage glamour

    Hello Mackie lovers!  For anyone who enjoys vintage glamour with a twist, check out the looks from a recent wedding I had the pleasure to be a part of.     A February wedding, on a snowy weekend, in Philadelphia, that was the combination of retro chic and gatsby glam.  The bridesmaids all wore a body fitted gown with beaded embellishments.

Just when I think I just can't take it anymore,...
