The death of fashion designer, Oleg Cassini, was barely noted this week. Most reports said he was 92, one said he was 93. He was Jacqueline Kennedy's favorite designer and designed her inaugural gown as well as the peach silk dress, at left, that she wore on a trip to India. I wore a nearly identical dress, only amethyst, in my cousin's wedding. When I was in High School I had a pink, silk suit that was a copy of one of Cassini's Jackie K. designs. The clothes were so pretty, without being frilly and fussy. So simple and innocent. Another icon of my youth is gone.
About comments . . .
I love and appreciate getting comments, and I love leaving comments on the blogs I read. I notice that some bloggers acknowledge every comment with an email. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. If there was a question asked, I try to answer it. The etiquette seems hazy.
If I am just commenting to say that I love seeing what someone has done, or I agree with a comment they made, I really don't expect a reply. I am thinking of marking such comments "NRN" or "No reply necessary". Feel free to adopt this practice if you think it's a good one. I don't want anyone feeling guilty that they haven't acknowledged a comment I left.
