bracing myself to work Friday/Saturday/Sunday/Monday so I can be off when my daughter comes to visit the weekend after Labor Day. she is needed to help me organize my apartment in the highrise, as I have been underwater this entire time and cannot seem to find the time to WORK instead of going out to dinner or watching a movie. note to clients, handbags on order are expected in any day now. however, because of the holiday we will have a 3-day period of non-working custom's people, who must check everything in arriving internationally. & I cannot complain about this at all. we need to be safe. HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND TO EACH ONE OF YOU GUYS, STAY SAFE & HAPPY.
I believe it was very important that ROGER GOODELL'S decision be looked at carefully.
No where in any rule book does it say someone can be convicted when there was
virtually NO EVIDENCE that Tom Brady did anything.
my problem with all of this is bigger.
no one person should stand in judgment of what someone else does,
especially when the punishment which can be levied is far outweighing the offense.
we are the United States of America,
where everyone has the right to a trial by jury.
a jury of many people, not ONE person.
I think you will get what I'm talking about.
oh yes, it's just a football game. 1 football game.
but, it is so much more.
a sports hero's reputation being tarnished beyond repair,
which would have followed him forever.
when he has a STERLING REPUTATION in everything he does.
he has won Super Bowl's in the past.
he plays fairly.
he team-mates love him, the owner of the team loves him, his coach loves him,
the fans love him.
maybe someone doesn't love him?
but, love him or not, the 4-Game Suspension was RIDICULOUS & EXCESSIVE.
it punished the ENTIRE TEAM!
Mr. Kraft, the owner, already paid the NFL $1 Million Fine.
they fired the ball people.
that should have been enough.
Roger Goodell isn't God.
but, I think he thinks he is.
I'm hoping all the other owners will take a long hard look at the scandal that's
been carried out for months, and maybe limit Mr. Goodell's powers. the following is the statement just issued by the NFL Player's Association
The rights of Tom Brady and of all NFL players under the collective bargaining agreement were affirmed today by a Federal Judge in a court of the NFL’s choosing. We thank Judge Berman for his time, careful consideration of the issue and fair and just result.
This decision should prove, once and for all, that our Collective Bargaining Agreement does not grant this Commissioner the authority to be unfair, arbitrary and misleading. While the CBA grants the person who occupies the position of Commissioner the ability to judiciously and fairly exercise the designated power of that position, the union did not agree to attempts to unfairly, illegally exercise that power, contrary to what the NFL has repeatedly and wrongfully claimed.
We are happy for the victory of the rule of law for our players and our fans. This court’s decision to overturn the NFL Commissioner again should signal to every NFL owner that collective bargaining is better than legal losses. Collective bargaining is a much better process that will lead to far better results.
well, I'm certain that Vicki Archer and Tish Jett already KNOW this
as they are hours ahead of us Texans...
but there is "news" for us fashionistas.
Time to update your New York Fashion Week calendar: The Row is moving its hot-ticket Spring 2016 presentation to Paris this season.
While this isn’t the first time Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have decamped to the City of Light for Fashion Week—they moved their Spring 2011 affair to Paris after samples didn’t deliver to New York in time—it’s still a notable decision for the brand, which recently picked up the CFDA Fashion Award for Womenswear Designer of the Year.
The sisters’ off-piste presentation was a big draw on the New York schedule, routinely held at posh, high-profile locations like Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Seagram Building and Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle hotel. While no further details of their plans are known at this time, it’s a safe bet that the affair will be every bit as chic as what they’ve done in New York.
(all from vogue runway)
I have long thought that The Row, Marc Jacobs & Tom Ford
are the most relevant designers on the planet right now.
I was looking through seemingly 1000's of photographs over the weekend, my late husband was never without a camera, so we have pics of EVERYTHING !!! when we were first married I discovered there was no way I would be able to use the closet in the master as he had it completely taken over with his things. the easiest, quickest, most practical way to make my own space was to take a small bedroom upstairs which was basically junk storage anyway, and build a closet. I thought of everything. below is one section which shows floor to ceiling shoe storage & suiting. I always used shoulder covers on my good garments while they were waiting for their next wearing. this protects the apparel from almost everything.
there was a window in the room, so I had built-in drawers built underneath the window
for my jewelry, sorta like the ones below.
this created a ledge or countertop where I could display other items and where I would place a lamp.
I had tract lights on a dimmer installed so I wouldn't have bright lights shining on the apparel unless I
specifically wanted it that way.
there was a small closet already in the room, so I made it into this type of storage.
pretty cool idea for jewelry storage,
however, never hang your nice/good/fine jewelry.
lay it flat so the chain/stringing material, etc. is not stressed.
&, of course, since I had an empty room to work with I was able to built it out specifically for my trouser lengths, etc., like the diagram above, except I knew I would hang my pants, not fold
them over a clothes hanger.
& I did have storage above for my luggage, it could just lay flat on the top shelves
& be pulled right out for packing.
I think you already know I have always used a rolling-rack for initial packing ideas...
pull out as much as you want, accessorize it, and then start eliminating.
I also had a dead bolt on my closet door and only my housekeeper had another key.
too many inquiring minds (the adult kids of my husband) coming & going, & I thought
the room was mine, personally, and shouldn't be invaded.
I've just discovered there an app for organizing your clothes !!!
stylebookcloset app for IPhone where you can use your own clothes, like Polyvore,
to create different outfits.
I have NO idea why anyone would need this, unless you're loaning things to someone else,
Looking for your dream wedding destination? We've found it.
I wish I could make the photo larger as this is just so beautiful.
this place began as a sugar mill long long ago. it was abandoned and almost went back to the wild, when a woman came along and had to restore it. she could see it as it should be. her vision was brought to life in the most beautiful way imaginable.
