All That Glitters

Brenda, a Newport Beach socialite, handed me an invitation to a designer trunk show. Despite my initial protests, she convinced me to give it a try. My newest SisterDivas column, What Price Fashion, describes what happens when I slip out of my off-the-rack clothing and into the fantasy world of bespoke couture. Check it out.



The fall 2007 edition of SisterDivas Magazine is loaded with don’t-miss articles and interviews. Bookmark the site so you can browse at your leisure, but be sure to look in on authors Laura Wiess (SUCH A PRETTY GIRL, LEFTOVERS) and MJ Rose (THE REINCARNATIONIST, etc.). 

Barbie sez: Always put your best foot forward.

  1. Mmm… Reem Acra– once upon a time I had an opportunity to get a Reem Acra dress at DEEEEEEEP discount, but unfortunately– wrong size.

    I still hold out hope.

    I also want Barbie’s dress.

  2. Okay, I’m far from a fashion concious kinda guy, but this was a very nicely written article, Miss Melodye. Wonderful work! I’ve never really understood why it’s such a faux pas to accidentally leave a tag on. Can you explain this horrifying event to this poor schmo? πŸ™‚

    Glad you had a wonderful experience, Melodye. πŸ™‚

    • Yeah, like you’d walk all over South Coast Plaza with a price- and size-tag affixed to your butt! LOL

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. It’s fun, isn’t it, to laugh at our foibles?

      • LOL… well, like I’d walk anywhere in South Coast Plaza anyway. lol… Bad experience there years ago and vowed to never, ever return. But still… we boys have size tags on our jeans! We have those waist/length tags that are on Levis…. I think. It’s been a while since I looked at my own butt. But you get the point. πŸ™‚

        Oh I totally believe in laughing at ourselves. We can do some of the silliest things ever. How can we not laugh at some of the things we do? lol…
