Pickersgill residents and their guests packed the Willard Auditorium to see the latest trends for fall apparel at the annual TaylorMarie Fall Fashion Show – and it was not a moment too soon! Although the autumnal equinox occurred nearly eight weeks ago, the weather outside our doors here on Chestnut Avenue has just started to have a chilly bite. A warm (or very warm!) fall season is typical in Maryland and this year was no exception. One guest remarked, “I was playing golf in 80 degree weather last week,” and as if Mother Nature flipped a switch on the day of the fashion show, daytime temperatures dropped to a cool fifty degrees with downright frosty nights.
The Pickersgill fashionistas were ready to see some soft, cozy sweaters, fleecy vests and faux fur trimmed coats. The TaylorMarie collection delivered on all of that and more. One piece that got a lot of oohs and aahs was a beautiful plaid poncho, in shades of plum, grey and navy. Several looks, adorned with a bit of bling or shimmery metallic thread, would easily transition as great holiday attire, especially a red tartan tunic-style blouse that turned lots of heads.
After the runway show, Pickersgill ladies shopped for several hours, carefully choosing favorite ensembles with accessories to accent the looks. The runways of New York and Milan have nothing on the hallways of Pickersgill!
