Men in Color

The men in color in this post are entertainers that we're familiar with.  It's refreshing to see men experiment with wearing colors as well as white clothes.  I'd like to see more men  in my neighborhood do the same thing.

Something New: Paper Necklaces

It's nice when a new product or idea is brought to our attention.  Even though we get older, we can learn something new every day, every month, every year.  I was very surprised to find out about paper necklaces a few days ago.  But why should I be?  Recycling is the chic and economical thing to do now.  Paper bead, paper yarn and paper clip necklaces are great looking accessories. Making them must be inexpensive if you're a diy person.

Red for Feb(ruary)

It's Valentine's Day!  A happy one to all of you.  What are you wearing for the special events some of you are attending today? 

 Instead of wearing red clothing, why not add a red accessory to keep committed to the color theme of Valentine's day?  Better yet, why not use accessories with red mixed with other colors and patterns?  It will keep you in the red color scheme.

The Facts of Life Facts of Fashion

I'm an absolute fan of The Facts of Life television series.  I remember waiting eagerly for the new episode to air each week. I loved the quality of the program, the characters, the school setting.  I was just telling a friend yesterday that I can't pick a favorite character; I like all the characters equally on the show.  The personalities are different, but they work well together.  I also loved to see what clothes Jo, Tootie, Natalie, Blair and Mrs. Garrett would wear each week. Especially Blair.  She was the fashionista.

The girls behind the characters are women now, and they have their own unique fashion sensibilities.  The facts of fashion for all of them is to be comfortable and classy.

Phenomenal Peter Pilotto Prints

The dresses speak for themselves.  The design team of Peter Pilotto has a special gift of combining prints to make (ph)antastic clothes (lol).  May they continue the print experiment.

The Gradual Color Change

Isn't ombre a lovely color confection? One color blending into another to create a wonderful concoction for the eyes. 
It's a wonderful way to bring more interest and appeal to fabrics and the garments made from them.
