Ask Elnora--about Project Runway?? Lenora Worth
Darlings, we all know Elnora loves clothes. If I didn't write books, I'd either work in retail again (which I did for many years when I was young) or I'd be a fashion designer. (If only I could sew!)But for now, I enjoy watching Project Runway. Just finished watching an episode where the designers had to create outfits for models on stilts. Yes, stilts. A tall order! The clothes were interesting--some costume-looking and some truly fashionable and fabulous.
Before I watched Project Runway, I attended a CAbi party with some friends. This is a clothes party where the representative shows the clothes (like a trunk show) and then party guests get to try them on. It's such fun. (You can see for yourself at www.cabionline.com)The clothes are always wonderful and Carol Anderson designs each season with a theme. This fall's theme is the movies! Starting with "Rear Window" and moving on to "Dangerous Liasons", "Love Story"(one of my favorite's),
"When Harry Met Sally", "The Devil Wore Prada", "Funny Face", and ending with "The Thomas Crown Affair". Clothes and my favorite movie themes--it was wonderful. And yes, I bought a few pieces. Our representative, cute and fashionable Wendy Turner, really knows her stuff. So last night was a fun night of fashion for Elnora.
That begs the question--What do you love about fashion through the ages? Do you enjoy our descriptions of our characters and what they wear? What is your favorite fashion time period--Victorian, Edwardian,Big Hair, Hippie?? Elnora loves those late fifties and early sixties clothes. Pearls, a flowing skirt and kitten heels are some of my favorites. Let's discuss style!!!!!
