Dressing the Dress Form

From sewing rooms, to shabby chic decor dress forms have long been a staple part of the Fashion Industry. I remember my years in Fashion school and using the dress form in my draping and sewing classes. It is always a great tool to use when trying to manipulate a fabric or desired shape and fit.  The dress form has always been indispensable in high fashion houses and so important for client fittings as well. So today, the world has evolved and so has the use of this famous mannequin. You may have seen the dress form used in window displays, in stationary, arts and crafts stores and even as decoration at home. It’s always such a great signature piece for any Fashionista. This is why I chose to include this classic silhouette in my blog header.  Do you have any dress forms in your home? Have you ever used one…

Marion Le Magnifique!

Marion Cotillard was terrific as Adriana in “Midnight in Paris” which I was finally able to see this past weekend. Not only is she a captivating French beauty on the big screen but a natural well rounded actress with much charisma.  She won the Oscar for best actress for playing Edith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose” in 2007 and is the second actress besides Sophia Loren, to win the coveted award by performing in a language other than English. You may also remember her from other films such as, “Public Enemies”, “Nine”, “Inception” and “Little White Lies” to just name a few.  In 2009 she was chosen to be the face of the House of Dior for the “Lady Dior” Ad Campaign.  Her striking features, feminine and demure disposition definitely remind me of the Old Hollywood beauties of the silver screen.  Look for Marion in “The Dark Knight Rises”…

Hiatus is over, I’m BACK!!!

Hello my dear Fashion readers! It’s great to be back from a great vacation. I apologize for not being more active but it has been a busy couple of weeks. I have had tons of catching up to do since being back from Mexico. Vacation in Cabo San Lucas was amazing! It was very relaxing and worth every minute I was there.  What I can tell you about the fashion there is that it is casual and laid back. It’s all about comfort in warm weather. Fashion trends I spotted were crocheted cover ups, glitzy and metallic sandals, cowboy hats and fedoras were all the rage. Maxi dresses and bright colored bathing suits were very popular in the downtown scene. In this post I would like to share some scenic photos taken of some amazing places in Cabo. From the world famous Arches to the Ocean sunsets, Mexico served as…
