Then & Now


Portrait of Edith Vanderbilt
Biltmore Estate
Ashville, North Carolina

it seems evident that Mrs. Vanderbilt loved beautiful apparel...
wonder what she would think of today's selections.



Chanel Pre-Fall Shanghai 2010
 ohhhhhh those boots


Celine
 
similar outfit shown on model Abbey Lee Kershaw a few days ago



Ralph Lauren
an outfit for any day in a girl's life...


Burberry Prorsum

has to be my favorite day look this season



Diane Von Furstenberg
hat & scarf



Lanvin Fur Beret


Precious Gloves

accessories from Bergdorf-Goodman


if one has not been to Biltmore Estate it is a destination to be
placed on your to-visit list...during the holiday season the entire
estate is decorated for Christmas, with live music & carrollers...it is
truly a magnificient piece of American history and is still owned &
operated by the Vanderbilt heirs, a gift to all of us to behold.

What goes around really does finally come around again. I've worn so many of these looks in years past. Glad to see them again. I love the Vanderbilt Estate...I've always wanted to experience the Christmas events. Thank you for sharing the coming fashion trends. Cherry Kay

I have heard before how beautiful the Biltmore Estate is - but that foyer decorated for Christmas is exceptional!! And I love the Celine outfit - love that clean tailored but modern look - I was looking at something similar (but not quite as elegant) the other day - I like this beautiful blouse better.

VERY nice. Love the smoldering gray...the Burberry gold with fabulous top. Merci! Trish

Love your blog, and even though I am personally not a fashionista, I do enjoy seeing those glorious outfits.
Now, my style is that gorgeous staircase all decked out for Christmas.
I'd love to try on those sparkly bracelets, so you may pick me if you like.
