Sister and I have been absolutely giddy to meet up with blog friends for lunch in Paris...

Virtual parties of this sort are so much fun...Imaginations running wild are the very best...

Marsha, with Splenderosa invited us to lunch in Paris at Le Pre Catelan on New Years day...

and gave us these words for inspiration...

We've been planning for weeks...

We definitely want to bring a small gift for everyone...something that will pack easily and the girls might actually use. A small remembrance of our special friendship...

We decided to give these over sized ruffled hand towels, a Providence Ltd.exclusive design that we sell in our online shop.

They are wonderful as is, but we had them monogrammed to personalize the gift...

We're staying on in Paris for a few extra days to do some shopping for the store...an added treat!

Planning what to wear was so much fun...Sister and I rarely get the occasion to dress like this..

Laughing till you cry... Sharing ideas... Planning for the future... Making life long friends... Does it get any better than this?

 

Just in case we need some help to carry all those bags...you know these girls have some shopping to do!

It's your turn.  Let's Talk!

And be sure to hop over to Splenderosa....to enjoy the luncheon with all of us.  We're holding your seat at the table.

The Sister's Become Fashionably Chic!

We absolutely love blogging.  The very best thing about it is the daily inspiration from blog friends and the friendships that have developed.  It's a friendly community.  Most enjoy sharing knowledge and expertise and helping others along the way. I know I've received far more than I've given and am truly thankful to everyone. 

This has been a week where collaboration has abounded.  Debra Phillips with 5th and State is launching a new online landscape design business.  We worked together on a test pilot with my grounds and her work is amazing.  If you missed that post earlier in the week, click here.

On Saturday Ann with Plum Siena, an expert at artisan wall and architectural finishes as well as event planning has put together a virtual Garden Soire in my back yard that you will not want to miss.

Don't forget to come back Saturday for that one.

Today you are in for a huge treat.    Marsha with Splenderosa is the most fashionable person I have ever met.  Her taste is exquisite.  Her jewelry designs are fabulous and you will definitely want to hop over to her site to take a look around and browse her Etsy Shop.

But don't leave just yet, because  Marsha has done a virtual fashion makeover on Sister and I that we're completely blown away with. 

Enjoy Marshas's talent...

"I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends

A chance to share old memories and play our songs again

When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name

No one recognized me, I didn't look the same"

And, so it goes when two beautiful blonde petite sisters,

who are both interior designers & live in Arkansas,

decided to host a garden party in their

newly envisioned home...

I decided they needed to push the envelope a little,

just as they would do if redecorating our homes,

by outfitting them in coordinating ensembles

with very fashion forward accessories.

After all, they want to be memorable, don't they?

And with these sumptuous dresses from

Alberta Ferretti

they look elegantly at-home casual,

just the right tone, I think.

love the crystal chunks around the neckline

whimsical shoes, either pair

--------------------

below, a coordinating 2-piece, we need to nip in the waist

because our girls are petite...love the white skirt with

appliques...add the turquoise jewelry & voila...casual dynamite.

Jewelry could be interchangeable between the 2 outfits.

And those calf-skin wedges!!

But either pair would do...

--------------------

Next pair of dresses, again

Alberta Ferretti

because she designs for small women.

Loving the chiffon print, billowing skirts & sleeves.

To keep the ensemble zippy the necklace which has

a tribal flavor with hammered gold hoops.

Sexy red wedges, perfect for the garden.

-------------------

Goddess dress in coordinating apricot silk chiffon

with appliques of lace in a dark tan...

again the billowing aspects...

lay on the gold & turquoise for a big pop of color

and making it look so new, not so formal...

with those turquoise wedges of summer.

Our ladies both have shorter blonde hair, so we won't be

seeing long strands hanging down so the jewelry becomes

even more important.

I've given them two choices for the enchanting evening.

I do hope they love them as much as I do.

Thank you, Mona, for inviting me to share in all the fun.

Now, let's all grab a glass of champagne and find

a great place to sit so we can see and be seen.

Wow!  Two girls can dream...Sister and I hope we never wake up.  We can't pick a favorite.  We'll just have to beg for lot's of party invitations to wear all of these wonderful clothes.

  Thank-you Marsha for such a sweet friendship and the beautiful job you did on this post!

What do you think?  Is Marsha's eye for fashion and beauty not just incredible?  She needs to be dressing Hollywood stars. 

It's your turn.  Let's talk!
