Happy Thanksgiving Day!

I've always like the Thanksgiving Day Holiday as it is a time to look back and be thankful for what you have and who you have in your life such as family and friends. It is a true day to just be thankful and relax. And relaxing I mean a full day of movies.

Here are some great Prep Movies to watch on a lazy day like today or the next 3 days of a long weekend! I actually have 2 Rob Lowe movies listed in my selections. Enjoy!

-Class (1983)

-Animal House (1978)

-Love Story (1970)

-Dead Poets Society (1989)

-Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)

-Clueless (1995)

-The Hotel New Hampshire (1984)

Whimsically Geo Jacquard Sweater

Today I got this shot of New York designer Marlon Gobel at "Around The World Inc.". We were both magazine shopping and saw this great sweater he had on and just had to get a shot of it which I was very obliged he allowed me to take his picture. Thanks Marlon!

As I have recently talked about this is proof the shawl collar is back and what a whimsical geo jacquard multi-colored pattern it was. We love this sweater!

Marlon's line can be found at Bergdorf Goodman so get yourself to Bergdorf and pick up a Marlon Gobel piece. It is truly Art he is designing. Buying a piece of his collection is like buying art.

Corduroy Appreciation Club

I just saw this on "The Choosy Beggar" and thought it was very cool. A website dedicated to all corduroy and you can become a member. What great awareness to corduroy and getting some fashion knowledge at the same time.
