I hope you all had a chance to meet Liz Lange yesterday on BEHIND THE Q. If not, do pop on over – I promise you’ll have fun! And if you’ve already seen the video in the post, then you know her favorite fashion eras are the 60s and 70s – a time of both classic and updated glamour.…

Naturally I wanted to find a movie appropriate for the Fourth of July. It isn’t quite as easy as one might think. So I decided to pick a film with patriotic values, one that, however sentimental, represents  a sense of freedom and democratic ideals.…

Most weeks I enjoy the challenge of trying to match my Friday movie pick somehow with what I have written about during the week. Sometimes it doesn’t work, but it’s a puzzle I always try to solve. Considering the art exhibition I covered on Tuesday and the classic house I featured yesterday, I think today’s movie, also a vintage classic, fits in rather nicely.…

It wasn’t very hard picking a movie in honor of Father’s Day. There are actually quite a few films to choose from that have strong father figures but nothing that compares to Gregory Peck’s iconic performance in To Kill a Mockingbird.…

Last weekend I saw a vintage movie that I haven’t ever seen – a rarity for me since it starred Bette Davis. And even more amazing was that it had both summer and shelter magazine themes!! June Bride, from 1948, was not one of Davis’ major hits, but was an improvement over her previous film, Winter Meeting.…

It seems that summer has finally found us. Several conversations I’ve had recently with friends online have involved their upcoming trips to Italy. While I am totally envious, it reminded me of a vicarious trip I took long ago. It was my first real exposure to Venice, a city that I am sorry to say I still haven’t seen in person.…

Since I think many of us regard Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial beginning of summer, I wanted to pick a fun movie that put us in the proper mood. This gave me the perfect excuse to choose a film I’ve been waiting to share.…

As many of my twitter friends know, I am at my daughter’s school for Parents’ Weekend today. So in honor of the legacy of this educational tradition, I am selecting an all time favorite.  Based on James Hilton’s famous novel, Goodbye Mr.…

Well I’m sure you’ve all guessed by now that today’s movie is horse related. I was of course tempted to feature National Velvet, my all time favorite in this category, but Elizabeth Taylor has been in the news so much of late, I thought many of you had perhaps recently revisited this title.…

It feels as if spring might actually be on the way. And with the hope of warmer weather comes the urge to get out and go –  somewhere, almost anywhere. I’m dying to take a trip, envious each time I read about a blogger coming or going from Paris, Provence or Prague – couldn’t resist the alliteration, but would actually be happy to go to a non-P destination as well!…
