DO-IT-YOURSELF DRESSING: At Third Avenue and 60th Street Wednesday at 1 p.m., a familiar voice rang out. It was Donna Karan, speaking from a TV monitor in the windows of Bloomingdale’s about her “system of dressing.” But in true recessionary times, rather than talk about her “seven easy pieces,” which was the foundation of her company 25 years ago, she boiled it down to “two-piece dressing.” She spoke about the great crisp white shirt and black pencil skirt, and the wonderful turtleneck and pair of pants. Several passersby stopped to listen, and one was moved to go back into Bloomingdale’s, where a sign in the windows said company reps would be working with customers all day and evening Wednesday to show them how to dress this season. However, upon venturing up to the fourth floor, the Donna Karan department was empty and there were no salespeople behind the desk within the in-store shop. A call was placed to Bloomingdale’s public relations department, which admitted the in-store event would take place from 4 to 7 p.m., a slight omission in the store windows and signage in the department touting the event.
