Stephen Burrows!

Definitely making a trip to see this exhibit....

"And next month, in recognition of Mr. Burrows, who is 69, as the first internationally successful African-American designer, the Museum of the City of New York has announced it will stage the first large-scale exhibition of his early work. Beginning March 22, more than 50 of his designs, including a chromatically colored jersey jumpsuit that Carrie Donovan plucked from his boutique inside Henri Bendel in 1970 for Cher to wear in a Vogue photo shoot, will be on display, along with videos, photos and one of his Coty Awards. Mr. Burrows was the first African-American designer to receive one." ~New York Times Fashion & Style

The Blonds!

I was in a meeting yesterday, and someone (Ian Michael Crumm) mentioned that The Blonds Fall Winter 2013/14 was fantastic!  I haven't thought about The Blonds in.... I don't know how long (as I slowly peek my head out of the world surrounding my toddler... LOL).  Of course, as soon as Baby was asleep I snuggled in with my laptop and oohed and ahhed as each gorgeous piece appeared on the runway.  This collection is a whole new take on retro glam.  Enjoy!

Oz The Great and Powerful

I was super-psyched to see Oz.... I love all things related to the yellow brick road.  If you've ever imagined what went on in the Wonderful Land of Oz before little Miss Gayle skipped in, you'll love this story.  But you have to be that kind of super fan (and I am) not to fall asleep through the beginning of this movie.  It gets much more entertaining towards the end when the witches get wicked and the wizard pulls out his bag of tricks.  Kudos to the set and costume designers, I could watch this movie on mute all day long.  Except.... as much as the wicked sisters were giving evil fierceness in each shot, Glinda was dressed for the local theater guild's production of Romeo and Juliet.  Maybe the wicked witches magically canceled her Vogue Magazine subscription. *shrug*
No matter whose look you're into, HSN has a one-of-a-kind "Wickedly Beautiful shopping event... and I have to say, even though I'm not an HSN shopper (yet), I liked the options... a little something for everyone.

There's even a "Cast a Spell" Oz inspired Home Collection!
