Bed of Roses

have you put your flowers on yet?
I mean, the flowered prints of fashion.

I bought a navy, flower-printed blazer a couple of months
ago. Wore it yesterday for the 1st time, and I felt fabulous.

when it's Spring we must have flowers!

“Dolce & Gabbana - Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear
Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear Fashion Show Details
See detail photos for Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection.
”

the blazer is scattered flowers woven into the fabric,
they are every color, from turquoise to hot pink to red & green.
navy pants made the outfit come together in a smart, new way.

of course, I'vce been playing with flowered fabrics for
1 Year
as I've worked on the collection for Little Girls.
every piece inspired by the Italian designers.

here's one little dress &
ladies, you will simply not believe the beautiful quality 
of this garment

100% Cotton Jacquard

 (COTTON JACQUARD is a highly textured fabric with a pattern woven
rather than printed onto the fabric.
Jacquard fabrics have a raised pattern design which could be florals, damask,
animals, etc.  Jacquard is woven on a special loom.

fully lined in cotton

this is my absolute favorite piece in the
collection.

we have stock on hand & ready to ship

all other sizes are sold out and can be re-ordered,

Days in My Life



the beautiful youngest grand-daughter, Holland, who turned 3 yesterday



wearing one of our LA LA LAND dresses



orchids in my living room window




my rock-star Maltese named Bono
straight from the groomer




I am going to try to post more images of 
WHAT MY LIFE IS REALLY LIKE

it's difficult for me, as for years now I have thought showing all
this personal stuff was akin to bragging or showing off.

but, life changes, doesn't it?

and I actually really enjoy seeing 
ALL OF YOU at home, your outfits, your pets,
your girlfriend get togethers and all that.

in August this year it will be my blog's 
9th anniversary.  
Wow, seems unbelievable that much time has passed,
as I remember agonizing over my first post
inspired by the brilliant Joni Webb, 
of Cote de Texas
another Houstonian blogger.

below, some of the new Fall/Holiday T-Shirt designs

just samples for now,
but soon in actual production

we are so proud of the wonderful reception
La La Land 
has received from all you bloggers & InstaGram'ers

thank you !!





I'm in love with these little 
APPLIQUED 100% COTTON DRESSES

all inspired by children's books & the fact that \
every parent and child loves
birds, flowers and animals.

they also LOVE color.

I thought we would make some of them with 
sleeves of a different print,
like the horizontal lines with patterned sleeves.

it's a super creative process, 
and playing with big swatches of fabrics
is like going back to pre-school again.


fun !


Ripped Jeans "Couture"




OK, now Chanel has this on the runway !!!

NOT a fan!

I know I know all the younger girls wear these things, but as much as I try to 
"get it" I just don't.

What's your opinion ?


don't forget to check out the
Girl's Collection in the shop

Room For 2 More NOW SOLD OUT





















Image result for photos of the Amalfi coast

who wants to join our girls trip to the 
Amalfi Coast of Italy, 
coming up in 2 weeks?

we have room for 2 more ladies.
Image result for photos of the Amalfi coast
the villa, which sleeps 15 is rented, it is above Sorrento with a view to the sea,
like the one above a little bit.

It's a 7 BR, 6 Bath, 7000 Sq Ft. Villa on 3 levels

We are arriving in Sorrento on May 27 and will depart June 3

Image result for photos of the Amalfi coast

that's 1 WEEK of bliss


our set agenda is as follows

The total cost for the villa rental is $6685.60 then we pay the housekeeper, so it is $835.70 per person,  but does NOT INCLUDE tourist tax of about $2.00/day per person which we must pay in advance to the Agency.  So about $20 per lady or so.

this is an amazing price, far less than a hotel !!!

The cost for the Walking Food Tour is about $100, 8 restaurants + wine which is for Tuesday, May 29th
from 10:30AM to 2-3 in the afternoon. Must prepay for this.


There are 4 ladies going to the 3 Tenors concert on Tuesday evening, none of the rest of us are going to this event, but if you want to go, please let us know.

On Wednesday, we will have lunch at the Palazzo Avino in Ravello about 1:30.
please look this place up, ,you with DIE over the views at the
 5 Star establishment
This day will be spent driving to the Amalfi Coast, shopping Amalfi and going up to Ravello for lunch and then viewing the gardens of Villa Rufulo and Villa Cimbrone.
we will have cars & drivers for this.

I'm thinking of a boat trip to Capri, going to Positano, etc.

The Cooking Class with dinner is on the 31st, around 3pm, about $100 per person, we're all excited about this.  
we are required to pay when we arrive at the class.
we learn Italian cooking skills, ingredients, then dine around their pool.

we will have an al fresco luncheon or dinner at the beautiful
hotel in Sorrento called The Bellevue Syrene,
another 5-star place, where my late husband and I stayed many times.

we will also go the Le Sirenuse Hotel in Positano for lunch or dinner

Image result for photos of Le Sirenuse Hotel

if we are able to eat any more.
(I've been dieting since February, with the daunting result of losing 10 pounds).

the drive alone is worth the holiday.

no where on Earth is there such a beautiful coastline.
I can guarantee this.
it truly is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE ON EARTH,
in my opinion.



email Marsha
splenderosa@gmail.com

if you are interested in going with us !

I would need you to send the fee for the villa rental + the Walking Food Tour.
everything else will be paid when we are 
there.

we have 9 other women & me.
2 cousins
4 friends from Little Rock
a lovely woman from Orlando
2 college room-mates

I know one of the attendees personally,
all the rest have trusted my knowledge
of the Italian Coast, which is pretty extensive.

All Aboard.......

Ladybugs

girls-



the LaLaLand collection is all WONDERFUL,

but this little dress is 
SIMPLY SPLENDID


IMG_6881


IMG_6875


IMG_9155


Sizes 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 7,

Pink or White

this fabric is a durable Poly/Cotton Knit, which is washable.

I do not recommend putting it in the dryer, 
as it will dry in no time just laid flat or hung.

the dress is wonderful to the touch, very soft & beautifully plush.

fully lined, the inside is as pretty as the outside.

the price?

that's the best part !


$ 45

email us to order please

lalalandorders@gmail.com

PRE-ORDER

delivery about 2 weeks

we have 1 Size 2-3 on hand at this time.


& the big news of the day:

one of Houston's local luxury retail shops 
saw the collection this morning,
and is writing an order right this minute.

they want us to do a Trunk Show just after
Labor Day, for Fall/Holiday pieces,
at which time we might have BOYS too.

anyway, one small step.....

Italian trip only 2 1/2 weeks away, we're all collaborating on
hair dryers, cell phone chargers, IPad's, 
etc etc etc.

anyone have a tip for 
ONE item you always take with you ?

I have a rolling rack in my bedroom, already started
putting pieces on it by outfit.
trying to do the minimum possible
(which used to be 2-3 pieces of luggage !)

3 pairs of durable pants 
(not jeans)
black, navy, pale pink

1 pair Silk Johnny Was pants

leggings

1 Flower-Printed Maxi Skirt

1 Black Maxi Dress (cotton)

Blazer, Lafayette, Floral Print
to be worn while travelling

pale blue Pop-Over top
pale pink Cashmere Sweater
black Pop-Over
navy T-Shirt

hot pink Silk Taffeta Jacket

1 scarf
turquoise jewelry ONLY

2 handbags

1 Gucci Baseball Cap
(necessity) 

walking shoes
little sandals, all flat

pajamas

hair goop,
Swartzkopf Glue Gel, put on wet hair, blow dry

anything I forget I can pick up while shopping.
except makeup.
must take my own makeup
mostly all NARS,

& I've gotten to the age where I think I need LESS
eyeshadow rather than more.

I've been extremely lucky as I have very very good skin,
and often don't put makeup anywhere except my nose &
then blended out.

I only wear Lip Gloss now, because truthfully, I need a facelift and not a face filler, which actually changes the way
you look, because I'm getting sagging jowl lines. YUCK!

& my own hair drying towel, microfiber
