• Wear It Well Wednesday.... ask Margaux - Dressing on a hot day!

    The recent heat blast in the northeast has prompted several questions from my own pool of friends.  One of the Mothers of a child in my daughter's class just said the other day..."I can't stand when it gets this hot because you don't want to wear anything with sleeves, but I don't like to show my arms."  

    Solution:  CAFTAN!

    If you tuned in last weekend to the Bob Mackie shows on QVC you saw a couple of them.  They are a great answer to wearing something that is light, not revealing, yet offering full arm coverage.  

    I talked about this one last Saturday morning.  A 222227 Bob Mackie's Print Boat Neck Caftan with tank.

    If you love tulips the way I love tulips this is such a great pick.  The movement of the stems is one of those artistic design features that Bob does so well to enhance the figure.  As you can see it is a sheer lightweight fabric that will keep you cool and airy, but it comes with it's own tank so you will not need to worry about what to wear underneath.

    Another great choice is A230971 Bob Mackie's Boat Neck Caftan with the sequin detail. 

    Teal and purple are your choices for a great look that gives you a nice solid color and the sparkle to illuminate your neck and your face.  Dress it up or dress it down all the while feeling cool and comfortable.

    If you are looking for the combination of something a little bit mod, but still classic, this one is for you:

    A233344 Bob's Sheer Printed Caftan with the tank.  The design offers a gorgeous design full of movement on the front and the back.  Seafoam, lilac and coral are the choices for delicious colors that will be wonderful additions to your summer wardrobe.

    I love all of the above choices, but the one that I chose for myself is A223767.  Bob Mackie's Placement Print Caftan with the tank.

    This is the green combo choice which is so fresh.  The other 4 choices are black, coral, pink and yellow.  This one is so much fun with the 'flower power' vibe.  You can see how the arm is open and airy.

    I do want to share that with all of these silhouettes the arms are not open so that your sides are exposed to all the world.  They all have stitching that closes off the garment on the sides, but the coolness and built in air conditioning will keep the flow of air, especially on those hotter days.  Aside from all of that, you have gorgeous, one of a kind, work of art pieces that everyone will notice.

    I once heard an expression: "Live life everyday like you're on vacation".  I know it's easier said than done, but in the summer with the warm weather and the outdoor fun you can try and there is nothing that says vacation like a pretty caftan.

    Holiday weekend is on it's way.  Enjoy
