what we need to understand is that these are the very people
making the specific decisions
of what will be in the stores for all of us to purchase
yet...
this is what they choose to wear every single day.
It does look like they're working, doesn't it?
Sunrise - Sunset - After Work - Evening
it's always Perfect to wear
BLACK




and when I was most impressionable I recall hearing that
 Babe Paley, a true fashion icon,
only wore black or white...
it makes the wardrobeing a lot easier, it all matches or mix-matches
not too many accessory problems
& it's always RIGHT

  2. Hi Marsha,
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and the wonderful comment! We like the same things... Your blog is off to a fabulous start! You have some beautiful pictures I've never seen before! I especially like the perfume bottles. I would be honored if you mentioned my work and posts! I found most all of my pictures on the internet, except where I mention otherwise, like the pics I took of my own venetian vanity and perfume bottles, and some cards. Can't wait to see your new posts!!!
