What I am wearing this week to my client’s art gallery exhibition is from our May 2008 collection. A crinkle, stretch silk charmeuse fabric. This shape is a scoop neck, seamed, knee length dress. This dress retails for $268.00. I choose to wear it in pebble which is a beautiful light neutral for summer. I feel very romantic and ethereal in this piece. There is a certain civility of dressing that we seem to lack in our modern culture that this piece cultivates.
I am reminded of piece of art we viewed this weekend at the Art in Bloom event at the MFA. Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema’s Woman and Flowers 1868. This oil painting depicts a woman wearing a very beautiful dress and enjoying the smell of fresh flowers.

Since Eileen Fisher, Inc. began our bedding collection I have been on the look out for organic bedding and other home goods.

www.looolotextiles.com Check out Joanna Notkin’s designs. Johanna won our 2007 women’s business grant award. These certified organic textiles make beautiful pillows and other treatments for the home. I love the product, the design, the sustainability and Joanna is a wonderful human being.
In my travels through all the various fashion ‘rags’ I am finding more and more brands that bring me back to my youth and the 1980s, which are making a come back… interesting …

Speaking of Target, the Rogan Gregory (for GO International) designer series debuts May 18th. This may be the first time in my life that I will be there with my nose pressed against the doors of Target when it opens. This will be an opportunity to buy into this designer at rock bottom prices.

NOTE- Pixie dust, also known as "fairy dust", is the trail of sparkling material that often follows mythical creatures such as pixies and fairies in general when they are visually represented. Sometimes, this trail is interpreted as being a tangible substance, often imbued with magic powers.
Words of wisdom from another women’s business grant recipient Alline of Milkweed Mercantile. I heard her talk about pixie dust, the people who gather and spread the pixie dust into other people’s life. A clever play on the virtuous Pay it Forward mentality.
