New to Houston - 24K Gold Ice Cream

Nobibi lets you eat gold.


yes, indeed, 24K Gold flecks or strips are edible.

we used to drink this fabulous "champagne" made in Germany called
Karolus Magnus, which had 14k gold flecks floating, so when it was poured into a glass
it was a beautiful sight to see, making it even more festive.

the FDA finally banned it in the USA, and we were really upset !!!

now, ICE CREAM made at an establishment new to Houston.

you betcha I'm gonna try it !!

Oscar - Another Smash





just so you know, it's $3,990.00


beautiful appliqued flowers in red over sheer tuille.
us older girls could have the under-lining made longer by the store's alteration department.

& NOTE the earring styling.


my days of spending this much money have past, but the love for the
beautiful fabrics, the quality of the workmanship and the sumptiousness
will never die.

I'm just keeping up now with what's new.

& what's new now looks like the 70's & 80's to me !!

I might, in fact, still have something like this waaaaay back in the closet.


love you guys !!!!!

The Absolute Perfect Little Black Dress




can't remember if this is Valentino, Oscar or Givenchy, but whomever
designed it hit a home run.

there are many beautiful black dresses,
but there are not many that make this kind of presentation.

I could wear this for YEARS. Literally years because of the superb styling,
the classic look of it, along with the brilliant details.

perfect  length for day or night.

but not with those shoes.  
for me, they are too strappy with this elegant dress,
but the younger girls will go for them because they "look" modern.
I would wear a pump, many colors available which would be beautiful,
or even leopard print like the little bag.

or a boot.  not a bootie, a real boot coming up to the knee, giving the lacy dress an
edgy look.

I also love great accessories/jewelry and this outfit is perfect for masses of
everything, or for nothing.

let me know what you think, please ?

back home from the little vacation,
readying for a business trip to Milan to work on designs & fabrics for
my little
LaLaLand Collection for Toddler Girls.

it's taking off, we're now in 8 boutique in Texas and 1 in Louisiana.
