the Zara "blanket" scarf...the "bloggers" scarf...and some random blogger love...



trend·set·ter
ˈtren(d)ˌsedər/
noun
  1. a person blogger who leads the way in fashion or ideas.




the Zara "blanket" scarf...

is

the "bloggers" scarf!




it reminds me of a trend we played upon many years ago.

( Annie Hall (1977)...fa la la la la...la la la la! )




some years later (2003)...Diane reappeared in the right place to

 "set" another trend!

since SGtoG...how many blogs have featured striped rugs?

(...and still do! )

it was a movie movement that made Dash & Albert household words!

( bloggers are still talking about it! )




yesterday...Annie...today Zara.




a new generation of Mommas...




...rockin' the old to new again!
( yes...another reemergence here...the"puffy"... now called...
...the puff-er vest )




...pumping up to volume pretty!




look what happened when some

 southern girls got a hold of it!

...too cute!


...and when you take "the blogger" 




 on  Holiday...it sings Merry Christmas!


:: ici ::


i'm  adding a touch of ebony to our traditional Christmas mix this year.

my thoughts and prayers are with you as you

ready yourselves in the days ahead!

withLove.
