my personal opinion about her apparel and demeanor:

& while many people may not like President Trump, I think she needs to be given credit
for being a wonderful First Lady for the USA.
people say she studies the culture of each place she will be visiting and chooses her
outfits to fit in to the appearances in those countries.

  1. I loved Melania in that Gucci dress, Marsha. The way she styled herself for this recent journey brought back the feeling of the leading edge fashion of the past. I bought for Frederick & Nelson, a division of Marshall Field & Co. We would have worked with the stylists and NYC having the looks IN STORE filtering from couture to better to moderate.

    1. How well I know ! Thank you, Lynne, for this lovely comment. Sending love....

  2. Love love love everything on your blog. Your taste is impeccable.

    The Melania clothes are perfect, she never misses a beat. How refreshing.

    Thank you so much for mentioning the Table for Two gift box.

    Much love,

  3. I, too, bow to Melania...her curated taste is just inspiring!! Thanks for "telling it" as it should be. franki

  4. So much pretty all in one the box idea and think its a good one with the holidays around the corner. Hope you are well Marsha!! (beautiful music and I recognize it from my husbands most favorite movie ever, Legends of the Fall)!


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.
