Prints!

Started by Bob Mackie in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities 1395941870.47

Hello Mackie friends! Is it just me or do prints seem to have a fresh look?  I was out at the mall last weekend, which is very rare for me these days.  As I was standing in line to check out, I looked back at the store around me.  It was like eye candy.  The patterns of all the prints suddenly just popped out everywhere… in a good way!  I realized that patterns are huge.  And not just big one note patterns… a lot of geometric forms or something organic and flowing worked into something with more structure.  I fell in love at that moment.  ...

Goodbye snow?

Started by Bob Mackie in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities 1394815087.543

Hello Friends!  The family and I decided to enjoy a little snow before it’s all melted away.  We did a long weekend ski adventure to Vermont.  Even the little ones were out on the slopes.  They did very well.  You can see here that we had gorgeous weather and a beautiful view of the mountains. The ski helmets are a great safety feature, but not the best fashion statement… maybe I could get Bob to design something festive for me. Tubing was another fun activity on our trip.  My daughter is a giggle machine all the way down the slopes. We had a... Continue Reading

Hello Friends! Many of you ask… what is Bob’s inspiration for his Wearable Art creations? As a true artist, Bob draws on all facets of his life for his fashion inspiration. In many cases it’s versions of gorgeous one of a kind pieces that he has designed for celebrities. If you tuned into one of the January shows on QVC you saw Bob’s Embroidered Bombay Tunic. It’s Item A2304. I wore it in red and there are now 9 colors to choose from in this highly rated tunic. Pink and light Aqua are the two new colors:   When we were talking about this one, I shared...

BOB IS BACK!

Started by Bob Mackie in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities 1392224311.597

Hello Mackie lovers! As we struggle through winter with one big storm after another we must rally on and believe that spring will come!  Let's fantasize, shall we?  What is your favorite thing about spring?  Mine is a pergola that we have in the front yard.  It's covered in wisteria and in the spring for about three full weeks there are tons of lovely, heavenly scented blossoms all over it. This is Ivo, myself and the kids standing in front of it last Easter.... currently it's covered in snow! Just when I think I just can't take it anymore, I think of that image and kn...

PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR

Last Reply by TuesdayTaylor 1391051696.473 | Started by Bob Mackie in Fashion Talk

Hi Friends! Has everyone heard that Radiant Orchid is the pantone color of the year for 2014?  I have to admit that I've always wondered how these colors are picked each year and who does it.... how about you?  Well I did a little research.  The color is announced each year from Pantone which is a company who created a color matching system that you see in various manufacturing industries... not just fashion.  Do you remember the day of learning your primary colors?  Well they are the base of all colors, but each color has it's own unique recipe.  That is what Pa...

WHAT IS YOUR COLOR FOR THE HOLIDAYS?

Last Reply by Dawkinsdarling 1391186854.617 | Started by Bob Mackie in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Q News

As a floral and decor event designer, I work very hard throughout the year creating gorgeous works for all sorts of events. It's a job that I love because no two events are the same and it allows my creativity to flow. Christmas is the one time of the year that I host my own event where I go all out with the floral and decor…Christmas Eve. It's almost become a contest each year of outdoing the last. When my guests arrive now they are always so curious to see what the table looks like. We literally remove everything from the living room to accommodate the tables and chairs. The guest cou...

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS

Last Reply by Crescent Lake Gal 1387663144.503 | Started by Bob Mackie in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Q News

What is your favorite thing to do at Christmas time? Do you have any special traditions or places you visit at this time of year? We take our children to have breakfast with Santa each year. It's something that they look forward to with great joy. To be honest, Ivo and I love it just as much. It starts off with 'Mrs. Claus' singing Christmas carols with all the families. Then Santa makes his big entrance. They have face painting, artists making balloon animals, and a very yummy breakfast. We grabbed a great family photo there this year: As you can see, Ian has his face painted as a tiger an... Continue Reading

THE CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN IS ON!

Started by Bob Mackie in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Q News 1386789251.45

Hello, friends! How was your Thanksgiving weekend? Did you get to enjoy the turkey with all of your favorite fixin's? Now that all the leftovers are gone and we are into December, the countdown for Christmas is on. It feels like it's coming early this year because Thanksgiving was so late along with an early Hanukkah. Are you ready for Christmas? Silly question, right? Well I know that many of you are well-organized and on top of things with your planning, but if any of you are like me you're feeling a bit rushed and behind the eight ball. I have the family to take care of, the house to deco... Continue Reading

TURKEY WEEK! WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THANKSGIVING?

Started by Bob Mackie in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Q News 1385580863.73

Who's hungry? I say that smiling because I am so excited over the anticipation of Thanksgiving Day, which is almost upon us. Can you believe it? What are your plans? Are you cooking this year or going somewhere as a guest? Maybe you are going out to your favorite place that serves up a wonderful feast…turkey or otherwise. We will be in New York City again this year to meet friends, watch the parade, and enjoy the 'Big Apple' holiday energy. My taste buds starting doing backflips last week when I was having my girls’ night. My friend Liz brought the desserts for our get-together. S... Continue Reading
