well, I'm certain that Vicki Archer and Tish Jett already KNOW this
as they are hours ahead of us Texans...
but there is "news" for us fashionistas.
Time to update your New York Fashion Week calendar: The Row is moving its hot-ticket Spring 2016 presentation to Paris this season.
While this isn’t the first time Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have decamped to the City of Light for Fashion Week—they moved their Spring 2011 affair to Paris after samples didn’t deliver to New York in time—it’s still a notable decision for the brand, which recently picked up the CFDA Fashion Award for Womenswear Designer of the Year.
The sisters’ off-piste presentation was a big draw on the New York schedule, routinely held at posh, high-profile locations like Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Seagram Building and Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle hotel. While no further details of their plans are known at this time, it’s a safe bet that the affair will be every bit as chic as what they’ve done in New York.

I have long thought that The Row, Marc Jacobs & Tom Ford
are the most relevant designers on the planet right now.
I was looking through seemingly 1000's of photographs over the weekend, my late husband was never without a camera, so we have pics of EVERYTHING !!! when we were first married I discovered there was no way I would be able to use the closet in the master as he had it completely taken over with his things. the easiest, quickest, most practical way to make my own space was to take a small bedroom upstairs which was basically junk storage anyway, and build a closet. I thought of everything. below is one section which shows floor to ceiling shoe storage & suiting. I always used shoulder covers on my good garments while they were waiting for their next wearing. this protects the apparel from almost everything.
there was a window in the room, so I had built-in drawers built underneath the window
for my jewelry, sorta like the ones below.
this created a ledge or countertop where I could display other items and where I would place a lamp.
I had tract lights on a dimmer installed so I wouldn't have bright lights shining on the apparel unless I
specifically wanted it that way.
there was a small closet already in the room, so I made it into this type of storage.
pretty cool idea for jewelry storage,
however, never hang you nice/good/fine jewelry.
lay it flat so the chain/stringing material, etc. is not stressed.
&, of course, since I had an empty room to work with I was able to built it out specifically for my trouser lengths, etc., like the diagram above.
and, now I've discovered there an app for that !!!
stylebookcloset app for IPhone where you can use your own clothes, like Polyvore,
to create different outfits.
I have NO idea why anyone would need this, unless you're loaning things to someone else,
Looking for your dream wedding destination? We've found it.
I wish I could make the photo larger as this is just so beautiful.
this place began as a sugar mill long long ago. it was abandoned and almost went back to the wild, when a woman came along and had to restore it. she could see it as it should be. her vision was brought to life in the most beautiful way imaginable.
go here to read the entire article, and you can find eved more photos on pinterest. just look for HAIKU MILL, MAUI
