Celebrating its half-century of support for the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, the Margaret Acheson Stuart Society partnered with Saks Fifth Avenue Sarasota to present SMartLY DRESSED, a fashion extravaganza held in the Grand Ballroom of the Renaissance Vinoy Resort in St. Petersburg.

The styles included bright prints, black-and-white combinations, resort wear and formal wear, with lots of gold accessories.

A new feature this year was a preview trip to the Sarasota store, with a separate committee co-chaired by Cibran and Ranon, with Piper as adviser.

Members of that committee also included Liz Bradley, Chaney, Jackie Chapman, Deann Coop, Steaphanie Dyer, Linda Dow, Shari Ellis, Hearn, Pam Levitt, Toni Lydecker, Lynda Jollay, Dawn MacLaren, Monica Mason, Carol Nelson, Mary Jo Nelson, Becky Ramsey, Reiter, Carolyn Reynolds, Toni Riche, Rachael Russell, Stephanie Sanders, Eve Sawicki and Carolyn Warren.
