It's no excuse...

... between the INSANE shoot schedule for the show I am doing on a network I can't quite mention on my blog yet, another show I am taping for another network, my satellite media tours, the book pitch, and all of the Fox Business, Fox News, Fox Radio, Strategy Room and now Sky News appearances I've put my precious blog on the back burner. I also blame Twitter for this as well (if you want a play by play of my days, PLEASE follow me on Twitter it is SO easy for me to update) I've been on location in this small mountain town in upstate New York, and I am back in NYC tonight to judge the Supima Cotton Design Competition. Last November, I was part of a team of judges that poured over portfolios of some VERY talented new designers. We picked our favorites, gave them the task of creating a dress from 15 yards of Supima cotton material and asked them to go to work. I can't wait to see what was created! And for the avid readers of this blog, I sincerely apologize. Part of my plan for 2009 is to somehow find balance in all of the insanity, which means having time for everything. I will post photos from tonight, from the holidays, and of course from the Golden Globes. It's nice to be back.

Lunching at Saks Fifth Ave.

SAKS  I rarely have time for lunch- much less a sit-down-two-hour lunch, but today was SO WORTH IT. Saks Fifth Avenue held their annual Holiday Luncheon for the fashion industry peeps and not only was I able to see old friends, it was also nice to take a minute and indulge in some holiday cheer (since I hate the holidays). Catherine Maladrino was unusually nice. She sat at our table and was wearing a bright red dress with a pleated skirt, accessorized with a black patent leather belt. Zac Posen was wearing a tweed cape and Peter Som was casual in jeans and a sweater. Thank you to the lovely ladies at Saks PR team for inviting me- you know who you are and I adore you!!
