Blogger, Interrupted. Reposting Mona's Garden Party, You're Invited

original post just below this one.
Blogger reinstated it, thankfully.

"I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, I didn't look the same"

And, so it goes when two beautiful blonde petite sisters,
who are both interior designers & live in Arkansas,
decided to host a garden party in their
newly envisioned home...

Mona asked me to choose the outfits each sister
would be wearing to their party. 

I love doing this as it allows for total creativity,
where money is no object,
and to suit the style of these precious women,
whom I've never met.  I've seen their photos
& they give me their height.  This is all I had to go on.

Giving a party in your own home allows you
to establish the mood & atmosphere...and
lovely ensembles certainly are part of this
atmosphere, aren't they?

The Alberta Ferretti chiffon dress above
is one of the chosen pieces, but to see
everything, outfits + accessories for
Mona & her sister, you will have to
go to her post, which is

This was waaay fun to create & dream,
now I think a glass of champagne is appropriate,
then we can find a great place to sit in Mona's
garden to see & be seen.

(I'm sick Blogger deleted this post because sometimes
one is completely inspired and inspirational thoughts/ideas, once lost,
cannot be re-created, you know?)



  1. I so feel your pain...I am fuming! What the heck was going on over there? Someone has said that they will be reposting the "lost post" from yesterday sometime today? Do you know about this? So strange! Anyway just visited that heck of an eye candy of a post and here is what I had to say.....

    Marsha! Hollywood needs you!!!!!!!!! Where were you for the Oscars? Most of these outfits would have put most of theirs to shame. those people need help. i always laugh thinking with all their endless resources, THATS the best they can do? You chose some superb looks up there!!! WOW...#1 and #4 I am ready to wear LIKE RIGHT NOW to my own housewarming party!!!! YOU TOTALLY NAILED IT!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Oh Marsha,
    Isn't it frustrating ?!! I have had months of problems with Blogger ( that's why I haven't been around ) and, just when I thought all was well, this happens. My last post has also gone, as has millions of other bloggers posts. I guess I will have to wait for it to be re-instated.
    Meanwhile, you are a trooper and have re-posted your gorgeous post. You are a better blogger that I !!!! XXXX

  3. Marsha, the ensembles you chose for Mona and her sister were fabulous!!! I need you to go on a shopping spree with me. Beautiful!!! Check out our recent giveaway when you get a chance. Have a beautiful weekend!


Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
