TOM FORD @ Bergdorf Goodman exclusively
Black Orchid Lipstick $45
now, come on, ladies...we all want at least ONE Tom Ford item, don't we?
$45 for a lipstick, boy-o-boy it had better be the BEST lip color and texture on the planet
to pay this price.

So, here we see the designer looks translated by the mass marketers into
items our daughters might wear.  And, you know, our daughters don't want
timeless apparel, they want "happening, new" outfits, just like I did when
I was 20-something (only about 7 years ago :)'s  ).

IMPORTANT, LeAnn Brown @ Linen & Lavender is now a member of
"By Invitation Only"
& I urge you to take a look at her recent post which you will find

I am so fortunate to have the array of vastly talented women around our world
participate with me on this monthly event.  The links are still up, below, and if you
haven't visited some of these wonderful blogs please take a moment and do so, you 
will be thrilled you did.

Big Texas hug to all of you, and YIPEE we've had our 1st "norther" blow
in from Colorado and we had overnight temps in the 40's.  Today it's
sunny, bright and about 55 - that's 1/2 of what it was on our summer days recently.

  1. Thank you so much, Marsha. I am happy to be part of such a wonderful group.
    (Though you'll notice I still have a few kinks to work out with Mr. Linky's Magical Widgets.
    Ha ha. Just noticed that sounds like code for something else!
    All my best to you! xo~L at l&l

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.
