Hello all! How is the week going for you? Who is sick of this dreaded heat on the east coast? I think my chickens were even sweating today! I continue on highlighting another must have for fall as recommended by 'in the know' folks of the fashion world. That would be something "drapy". Have you ever worn something drapy? This is not as straight forward as many try to make it. Creating drapy takes thought and keen experience. You may have encountered those who attempt drapy, but just end up looking like a tent. Fortunately, Bob Mackie knows...

Hello all! This weekend I did flowers for a very posh wedding in downtown Philadelphia. It was such a treat to work with large grande Calla Lilies. There is something so refined, elegant and sensuous about this flower. 1/2 half of the dinner table designs were done with this design: I think it's the linear shape, gracefulness and purity that really makes this flower so unique and beautiful.

I hope you are all having an amazing weekend... even though the sun is still hot, I can definitely feel the hints of autumn... how about you? I started my top ten "must have" list for the wardrobe earlier this week. This is based on the what I read from Style.com. I think they are a good reference as I have enjoyed their magazine for many years. The number 2 must have according to them is an over the knee boot. Now, I have to be honest...this is one that is not always for everyone. With that I mean... I...
