  • Exciting!

    Headed back from New York City today.  An apparent excitement was in the air.  Could it be a gorgeous sunny day, lifting the spirits of all New Yorkers after so many days of cold and gray?  Perhaps it's the buzz of this weekend's Super Bowl as sports figures and commentators talk strategy and statistics?  Or maybe it's the energy of the Bob Mackie team meeting with the QVC buyers talking about this coming weekend, the first visit for Bob Mackie in 2014 and the outlook of the entire year for Wearable Art?  Yes, my friends, that's the excitement I was...

  • Polar Vortex

    What's the temperature where you are?  Currently it's 12 degrees for me with a wind chill below zero.  This is what they call atypical weather for our area of south eastern Pennsylvania... thank goodness.  The snow finished in the middle of the night topping off at 10 inches.  If it was not so cold I would consider a day of sledding, but we wouldn't last 10 minutes out there.  What is one to do with some young kiddies who are cooped up and climbing the walls?  Bake of course.  We brought out the mixer and whipped up a bundt cake...

  • Pantone color of the year

    Hi Friends! Has everyone heard that Radiant Orchid is the pantone color of the year for 2014?  I have to admit that I've always wondered how these colors are picked each year and who does it.... how about you?  Well I did a little research.  The color is announced each year from Pantone which is a company who created a color matchings system that you see in various manufacturing industries... not just fashion.  Do you remember the day of learning your primary colors?  Well they are the base of all colors, but each color has it's own unique recipe.  That...

  • A Classic look

    Happy Friday!  It's snowing. Again!  Big flakes today.... they say big flakes, little snow.  We'll see.  I hope it's not too much because I am off to the Q today to join Shawn Killinger at 12 noon for the Q Check hour.  I'm very excited to share a gorgeous jacket with you.  A230966.  Bob Mackie's Ponte Knit Button Front Jacket: This is the red, but it also comes in green, grey, purple and turquoise.  Now based on the description the design could have been many different things, but here you see this is a longer jacket with very classic seaming...

  • A snowy winter

    Happy New Year friends!  How was the joyous time for you ringing in 2014?  We were quietly sipping some champagne at home.  After a whirlwind of craziness throughout the entire holiday, I always find New Year's to be my calming down period.  On New Year's Day I actually did a major clean out of all the things 'I just don't need'.  Do you have stuff like that?  It felt GREAT.  We are taking our tree and decorations down today. In the world of weddings I was already busy with an gorgeous wedding last night.  The Bride's vision was a romantic...
