Generously donated by Saks Fifth Avenue, this piece is now a hot raffle item for this year’s Wine, Women and Shoes, which is just weeks away (!!). AND! You don’t have to be present to win! // Click here for more @SarasotaMagazine.com
November is only days away. And, if you’re like me, this is the time of year I begin to look forward to sweater weather. That is, until it means facing the daunting task of caring for delicate fabrics, which, frankly, intimidates me.
So, I opted to arm myself with information before donning that cashmere sweater I’ve been eyeing at a fave downtown boutique. First things first: Now I know to check the weave of the fabric before I buy. The looser the weave, the more prone the fabric will be to pilling. Mixing fabric types can cause that, as well as premature wear. //Click Here for More @SarasotaMagazine.com
The possibility exists that you’ve not heard the name Charles Youssef, if not, it’s time. Especially if in May 2016 Vogue named him as one of “The Next Wave of Young American Designers.” And, his collections are stocked at Barney’s New York – the luxe retailer with a history of discovering fashion’s talent. Not to mention that Lady Gaga purchased his graduate collection – from the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design – during London Fashion Week in February 2010 for her concert tour the same year.//Click Here for More @SarasotaMagazine.com
