“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

My three boys love their blue blazers. They requested them two summers ago when they saw Philippe wearing one to dinner. They had them in two days – Amazon Prime is an amazing thing.

They look adorable in them and are so proud, but the issue was that they would wear them once and they would be totally trashed and you know, they have THAT tag, “Dry clean only.”

So to the dry cleaner they would go. First of all, we would forget that the blazers were at the dry cleaners for months, and second of all, it cost about the price of the blazers to dry clean those things.


I did the unthinkable and threw them in the washer.

Guess what . . . they came out fine.

I don’t mean to infringe upon family businesses because hey, I get it, but sometimes it pays – literally and figuratively – to question the “rules.”

Have the best day ever!
