Fashion in Bloom(ie’s)

Lisa and Sammie Cartolano

Recently, Bloomingdale’s in White Plains and WAG teamed for the store’s “Summer Fashion Show.” And what a treat it was for me, getting all gussied up to co-host the event with Bloomingdale’s fashion director Susan Marasco. Half of the fun was selecting the dresses I presented in the “Garden Party” and “Summer’s Evening” sections of the show. Among my finds were two sexy Karen Millen floral print dresses and a devastatingly demure Coast-Aloisa blush dress. It was like a shopping spree without the sticker shock. Some 200 guests – who included my pal, the novelist Barbara Nachman – enjoyed the runway looks, along with the drinks and hors d’oeuvres that brought a touch of the tropics to Westchester. – Georgette Gouveia
