I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Norman Norell was a fashion designer. He worked in the industry from the 1920s through the 1970s. He began his career as a costume designer for films, and he later opened his own fashion house. He was the first receipient of fashion's Coty Award and the first inductee into the fashion critics' Hall of Fame.


Me & Mom - The exhibit Norell:Dean of American Fashion at the Museum at FIT was interesting. We had never heard of Norman Norell before, but we loved a lot of his clothes. Everything in the collection was so colorful. There were a lot of dresses and coats. There were a bunch cute dresses that looked like sailor dresses. They looked like something out of  a movie. A lot of the outfits had big bows. There was bunch of sparkly dresses full of sequins. They looked like if you walked in them they would shed sequins everywhere. There were some weird feathered dresses that looked like bird's nest. There were a bunch of cure little black dresses.  There were some other items on display  as well like jewelry as well as the Coty Award won by Norman Norell. All in all, it was fascination exhibit especially if you love fashion.


Norell: Dean of American Fashion will be open through April 14, 2018 www.fitnyc.edu/museum/exhibitions.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
