The 25th Anniversary Celebration party I attended with girlfriend Elaine F. for Conway MacKenzie was a fine gathering on a perfect summer evening.  Seafood and desert offerings were abundant and beautifully displayed (Starbucks Coffee and Ben & Jerry Ice Cream also had guest stations in every room).   The live music was top notch with an array of bands, singers (Including the talented and delightful Martha Reeves) and musicians performing throughout the evening. 

While the fleet of hired models wore a uniform figure hugging sexy black dress, most of the guest wore a variety of color, style and upscale professional attire.   My friend Elaine wore a beautiful Tadashi Sohji Teal off the shoulder dress and I wore a vintage Flora Kung silk kimono style dress.

The evening also included an exciting fireworks show on the river.  It was a splendid evening I tell you, one worth sharing.  Thank you dear Elaine for the invite and to Conway MacKenzie for doing it big in Detroit, Cheers!

I Would Wear It On My Head.....

alvitafreestyleindetroit: polyvore set "Axis"
A little visual splendor from me to you, where ever you are where ever you go, may beauty and life be your blessing.
I have often thought when admiring flowers in bloom that they are a sort of smile from mother nature to us all. 

I also love how Fashion Designer Mary Katrantzou adds so much visual art to her textiles and designs, this set is inspired by her work.
Lately I have been studying the personal style of Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo, who wore large flowers and ribbons in her up braided hair.  This set is also inspired by her as well.  If it were possible for me to make this a three dimensional image I would definitely wear it on my head as an ode to Both Mary and Frida, two Women with big love for nature and art!
