Take Time to Enjoy the Cher

Hello fellow Mackie fans!  Today is Friday and I know everyone's brain has already checked out for the day.  So I suggest we all take a moment to enjoy a little Cher.  Where Cher goes a Mackie is sure to join which makes every Cher moment a bit more sparkly. 

This is one of my favorite Mackie-Cher moments, from the Cher Show in 1975.  Nothing better than an uptempo reveal.  Am I right ladies?  Don't even get me started!  That feather wrap needs to be in every women's closet.  I love the draped rope detail on this dress.  Mackie used this detail in Jubilee! and even in the Barbie 50th Birthday fashion show.  I love it!  It gives the gown an opulent looks that recalls images of the Ottoman Empire. 

The gown was auctioned off by Cher in 2006, but the wrap wasn't present at the sale... which can mean only one thing.  She still wears it from time to time.  After all, you never know when an emergency reveal might strike!

Mackinistas! A Call to Arms!

Meeting Bob Mackie was amazing.  He is such a nice and giving person.  After I presented him with his own sequined Mackie shirt, I had a chance to discuss them with some of the other Mackie obsessed fans in attendance.  Everyone was very excited about the possibilities of producing the shirts, since I have had several requests for the shirts by adoring fans. The question was posed, "How many Mackinistas would be interested in owning a sequin Mackie shirt?"  Since I am the local Bob Mackie expert I was charged with collecting this data. 

If you are chomping at the bit to buy your own sequin Mackie shirt, please fill out the survey below.  It will help us gauge the public's demand for the shirts.  I will gladly share these results with team Mackie so they can consider putting the shirts into production.

Thanks for taking our quiz.  I promise to keep you all posted on the developments of this project!
