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.

    I love me some haute couture! I agree us women should make more effort on our part to be more fashionable. I went to Europe and was blown away by the women over there. They really make sure they are presentable when stepping foot outside their doors. Nice post.

  4. Kayce,I have thought about that. I love me some fashion and looove vintage photos like the post had in it.

  6. Wow! Fantastic pictures!
    I do not, peronally, care for designer clothes, but I love looking at things like this.
    And some of those, I might slip into....properly liquored up and strategically girdled!

    What a lovely post. The pictures are wonderful to see, you have featured some wonderful pieces here. I agree couture isn't what it used to be. Lagerfeld for Chanel, Gallaino, and Dior still create the best haute couture. I see you also featured Ms. Anna Wintour as on of your favorite fashion icons. I was a assistant to Ms.Wintour years ago now. She was one of the best fashion role models to have, although she could be extremely demanding and seem impersonalable at times. I would though never give back my time with the experience. I lovely post again.Much goodwill to you Mistress.

  8. When I see those clothes, it reminds me of this hawt biatch that comes to our church. Do you know who the Maguire Sisters are? Well if you do, Phyliss comes to my church, and honey that biaatch comes with armed bodyguards. That is no shit. Yes girl, she had the congregation in an uproar because they are two of the biggest baddest black men you ever seen, hell My Baby is 6'4 and 290 and they make him look like a dwarf. Anyhoo she comes in it looks like a Las Vegas Opening Number, but no one will say shit to her, cause she gives the church about $5,000 a week. I gotta get you a pix, I'm going on this weekend for church I hope she's there.

  9. Sam- You should try to get a pic.Would love to see it. Thats sound like a fashion show there at your church! Sunday finest they call it.

  10. So glamorous! Love those photos.

    I remember Phyllis and saw the McGuire Sisters perform a long time ago. Hope you get a picture of her, Sam. I'd love to see it.

  11. Some absolutely knockout photos here!


Go ahead darling, tell me something fabulous!
