Grettings, you fabulous blog readers! For any of you in the Boston/New England area, the countdown is on to the inaugural Year of the Little Black Dress meeting. Sue Bennett will lead a seminar on fitting as the kickoff. ASDP and Sue did a fitting seminar that was incredibly well received last year. Even if you attended that one, I’d encourage you to come to this one. The focus will be different, and will cover things not covered last time. It’s going to be a great time. Hurry, though – space is limited and it’s filling up!
Date: Sunday, October 2, 2011
Time: 1:00 PM
Location: Berlin Town Hall, Berlin MA
Cost: $20 (free for ASDP New England members)
To register, contact
Maureen Egan, 12 Hamilton Way, Westfield, MA 01085
In addition, there will be classes with Susan Khalje and Anna Mazur, and it all culminates in a fashion show for participants! For more information on the entire series of The Year of the Little Black Dress, check out the ASDP New England Website.
The Perfect LBD Fabric
Of course, I would be remiss not to mention that we have the perfect fabrics at Gorgeous Fabrics to make your LBD, whether you’re taking part in the YotLBD or just looking to make yourself a spectacular dress or suit. For my own version, I’m pairing this Italian Tropical Stretch Wool/Cashmere fabric with Style Arc’s Paris Dress. I think it’s going to be great. The drawing is very Lee McQueen or Victoria Beckham. And this fabric? Omigawd, it’s soooo fabulous! It’s incredibly soft. The cashmere makes all the difference. I just want to roll in it!
Please note that the ASDP and ASDP New England do not endorse Gorgeous Fabrics. I’m just putting in a shameless plug for my business along with plugging the series.
Parting Shot: Peridot!
Love this color from Chanel. It’s supposed to be the hot color for the fall. Last week when I was snoop shopping in Boston, I decided to treat myself.
It’s got more green and blue in it than shows up in the photo. It’s very iridescent. I think it will look great with a LBD, don’t you?
