The Mistress Loves Somes Couture
The Mistress loves herself some Haute Couture. If she could, she would be decked out in couture 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even her styling at work reflects her taking everyday fashion and blowing it out of proportion. All the ladies comment they love the styling of the Mistress and the looks she creates with all the garments we carry. "They look so good and fabulous, but where would I wear that?" I always tell them they can take a everyday outfit and add just a bit of glamour to it. Why be boring, or why wear the trends, or the hot item of the minute. Wear what you want and have fun with it. Give it your own signature touch. Isn't that what fashion is about? When the Mistress goes anywhere, or for the matter her creator ,the Boy, go anywhere I always mix new apparel with vintage clothes has well. I think style is mixing old with new. And I love a good piece of vintage. Years ago I went to a vintage store and purchased three vintage Dior shirts all for $16! I have worn them and mixed them by layering in to a existing outfit. But by themselves the only place I could wear them would be a old Hollywood party! But layered with new outfits it adds a touch of vintage and adds a new spin. I do miss the style women had in the 40's up to the late 50's. Those tight suits with furs trims. The big hats. The capes. The highly elegant gowns and the glamour hair. And especially the haute couture of yerter year! Some of what the Mistress would like to have in her closet follows. What kind of fashion do you like?
The Mistress would wear this to a evening social event anytime.
The great Audrey Hepburn. She could really turn out a Givenchy creation.
The Mistress love a little Galliano!
The stunning Anna Wintour, probably the most powerful fashion editor in the business. A runway show doesn't start till she is present. Ms.Wintour is one of the best dressed women around in the Mistress's opinion. She always is dressed! Sharp as a tack! Great outfits.Perfect hair. And loves the sunglasses she very rarely is seen without at a runway show. Here she is in a gorgeous vintage Chanel suit.
