If you’re looking for a really good reason to get out of town and want some major fashion pablum to boot I suggest you book your next flight for… London. (Trust me on this one. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

London’s Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) is presenting one of the most spectacular fashion exhibits ever. Not since Alexander McQueens “Savage Beauty” exhibit has there been this amount of excitement for a collection at V &A. Their latest offering on display is titled “ Christian Dior “Designer of Dreams.” It’s a breathtaking view of the brands stylish history from it’s inception in 1947 to present day . This exhibit is on display and open to the public from February 2 to July 14, 2019 and features over 500 pieces (including 200 couture gowns)!

A must see sensation. Between you and I,they had me at Dior! For more information about this exhibit check out the complete 411 at Harper’s Bazzar.com


The pièce de résistance of the captivating collection is a gown Princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II, sported on her 21st birthday. According to The Standard, the dress is on loan to the V&A by the Museum of London

Hat-tas-tic

Today is National Hat Day!

Hat by Balenciaga circa 1954 Photographed by Henry Clark

Hats in their heyday (circa 1950’s & 60’s),were a MAJOR fashion accessory that completed a women’s look and were selected with the greatest of care…

Unlike, hats of today that are tossed atop your head without much thought (and in many cases chosen to cover up a bad hair day or shield one from the harsh elements-(rain, snow, sleet or bright sunlight),the hats of years gone by were statement pieces that were full on glamour .

Oh, I wish that the hats of yesterday would come back. It would give us all a chance to upgrade our look and really make hats..hat-tas-tic once again.

Happy National Hat Day! Here’s to bringing back the hat …in all it’s glamorous glory!.

 Back to School for Dior Bebe (Autumn/Winter Collection)

Can it be back to school time already???? Are you blessed with little ones going back to class in your household? Then, you’re well aware of the massive “mad dash” to find the perfect back-to-school outfits. If you have “extra cash” (translation-enough bank to cloth your adorable child in designer duds) might I suggest you turn to the Dior Bebe collection for Autumn/Winter. In a word it’s ADORABLE. The outfits for girls are feminine and fun and for boys, modern and well tailored. When you wear Dior Bebe, there’s no doubt that your duds will go to the head of the class.

After the long holiday weekend, are you looking for a little pick- me- up? How about a splash of color to really get you past the mid-week slump…o.r.r.r.r… perhaps, a teensy weensy bit of “DRAMA” in your day just to keep  things interesting.  

This should do the trick.

Armani Prive'

Three days and counting until the “Oscars”… (Or as I refer to it- “Glamfest.” The most pressing question on everyone’s mind that night (well besides who is actually going to take home Oscar) is the resounding Joan Rivers sound bite: “Who are you wearing? So, I thought it only fitting to have a little “preview of possibilities”…
