Nothing to Wear


Thinking that I’d be caught in a rut the next social function, my wardrobe ever inadequate to the demands, I went online.  There I found a red dress that took up residence in my imagination.  It was spring, not traditionally a red time of year, and I had not gone looking for a red dress.

Officials reported record attendance at the Preakness on Saturday. That’s a shock given the rainy conditions, but the Preakness attracts die-hard fans.  Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these revellers from their appointed rounds. My husband and I were lucky enough to go for the first time, thanks to an invitation from The Stronach Group. A former Ralph Lauren creative director from Beverly Hills, California designed the space inside the tent.  It was jaw-dropping.
