This is the first year that I haven't seen any of the Oscar-nominated Best Picture selections. I would like to see Slumdog Millionaire because I just love that Bollywood-style music. I am going to one of the officially-sanctioned Oscar parties across the country and it's benefitting an AIDS charity where several friends serve on the board.
I am taking a cue from Mrs. Blandings and wearing her classic outfit of crisp white shirt, turquioise jewelry and a ball-skirt. I am adding a gorgeous cashmere shawl I bought in London a few years ago.
