Today, the United States celebrates Memorial Day. It is considered a federal holiday and marks the unofficial beginning of the summer season.
In the fashion world, Memorial Day marks the time of year fashionistas can technically start wearing white, though this is really an old "rule".
In New York, we celebrate Fleet Week and if you are lucky enough to be in our great city, you get to see the fleets of ships along the Hudson River and sailors and other service people walking our streets. If you're a native to New York or a visitor and bump into a service man or woman, please make sure to thank them for their service.
Since today is a holiday, here is one of my favorite songs celebrating holidays, "Holiday" sung by the Bee Gees.
Thank you to all our service men and women.
Rest in peace Robin and Maurice Gibb.
