That Little Black Dress

18 Nov

Want to read a fashionable, fun book? Then, I recommend Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L. Rosen. I had the opportunity to meet Rosen (above, left) at Bloomingdale’s in Palm Beach Gardens and then hear her speak at the JCC lunch at the Kravis Center. The book is written like a screenplay and is a fast read. Every chapter has a different narrator with a story about ┬áthe same black dress. Some of the narrators are a runway model, a movie star, a salesperson, a pattern maker, a Broadway diva, etc. The true star of the story is the little black dress which is the “it” fashion statement of the season.

I understand the audio book is just as charming as the print version with all the distinct character voices.

The book begins with this apt quote from Yves Saint Laurent: “What is important in the dress is the woman who is wearing it.”

Here I am, (far right) with my friends all wearing little black dresses.

Hello Gorgeous: Wish List Makeup Products

14 Nov

Image-1

I just attended the beauty trend event “Hello Gorgeous” at Bloomingdales in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I’m going to pass along the products highlighted for a flawless, chic look.

For skincare, Clarins super restorative serum was chosen to maintain your skin and reduce aging. Did you know that Clarins was the first plant-based cosmetic line? Clinque presented some sculpting products including a massage applicator. From Shiseido, ultimune was demonstrated.

Now you can spray on a foundation? Dior has air flash. It’s simple, fast and not sticky.

Lancome highlighted the Paris eye palette, while Estee Lauder demonstrated double wear makeup to go in a new innovative compact.

Of course, I made a purchase. My purchase was the Bobbie Brown serum corrector and concealer. Just what I need to get rid of the dark circles under my eyes and keep them bright.
