San Francisco Opera celebrated the opening of its 91st Season last week with a gala opening night that was beyond all expectations.
San Francisco Opera Guild’s sold-out 2013 Opera Ball: The Garden of Good and Evil was created by celebrity event designer Colin Cowie to reflect the celestial and devilish themes of the evening’s performance––late 19th-century Italian composer Arrigo Boito’s Mefistofele. I met Colin at at recent luncheon held in his honor, and he was very engaging and extremely excited about the upcoming gala.
“It’s Not New…but It’s New to You!”
In October 2012, members of the Studio Fitness Center brought items from their closet that they no longer wanted to wear, but were perfectly perfect for someone else. Participants were shocked and delighted when they found a treasure or two that they could take home FREE just because they contributed. Unclaimed items were donated to Danville Hospice Thrift Shop. But, don’t worry…you haven’t completely missed the boat. We’ll have another one soon!
Beyond the Fitting Room
You’ve got the perfect outfit-complete with hot shoes, rockin’ jewelry and a killer handbag. The only problem is, there is ONE thing out of place. Can anyone else see the snafu? Maybe it’s only noticeable to you, and sometimes, that feeling is worse. Either way, nothing is more frus- trating than that proverbial “hair out of place” when you want to look and feel your best. Not to worry; there are products to take care of just about every potential fashion disaster, and if you have them handy, you’ll be ready for any emergency.
