I just recently discovered Carlos Miele on You Tube Reserve Channel show Behind the Label ( one of my new favorite viewings). And unbeknownst to me, I had already pinned many of his designs, especially the animal prints, on Pinterest.

CAPES HAVE RETURNED AS FASHIONABLE OUTERWEAR



I spied a beautiful sweather-knit cape while watching Home Shopping Network. The best details of the garment are the pockets and that it doesn't have to be dry cleaned.

Follower of Fashion Photographers

I recently disovered a fashion photographer on facebook through one of my acquaintances Geary Marcello.
Fernanda Fernandes is an artist who has captured some of my favorite style designs. I truly enjoyed perusing the posted pictures. Hooray for animal prints and sophisticated pantsuits.
Coincidentally, tonight, the host on PBA 30 Georgia, is also wearing a stunning dress with animalistic motif.
