“The House of Maryanne girl loves a compliment.” Bridges told blogger Ashley Ordin. ”She loves to tell story behind a piece, pointing out the details and the luscious fabrics. The House of Maryanne girl loves to make an entrance – be it into a room full of strangers, a cocktail party on her own veranda or into the next room to show her boyfriend. And She knows that every time she makes an entrance, she will be smiling, confident and comfortable, in her own skin as well as her clothes.”
