many seasons ago I would have worn (and did wear) any/all of these outfits..
when we are young we can wear anything can't we?

the top outfit almost looks like a dress I had which I think I wore so much it
finally died a natural death...back then I could wash it in the sink and hang it
up in the shower to drip dry...someday I'll remember the name of the designer.

now I look at this outfit...and scream "you can't go outside with this on your body."

of course, the new iteration looks "new" to the younger crowd, doesn't it?

my daughter prefers the much simpler styling of Tahari or Philosophy,
so she has never been attracted to big prints...but 
there was a time when I came home and discovered that a beautiful
black Scassi cocktail silk taffeta cocktail dress was missing from the back of my
closet door...I had ordered it from NYC & when it arrived I just put it there so I
could look at it for awhile.
SHE decided it looked good enough to wear to a high school function, so
off she went in my as-yet-unworn outfit.

could not believe it.

& I dearly loved that dress for many many years...

& so it goes...

  1. Love the Wes in red!
    I wore Tahari suits in the 80's...Sometimes I wish that I held onto them. They were amazing.

  2. WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO YOU!!

    I call it (and I did not make this up)!!

    This is the "circle of life!"

    At 65; I do not think I look good in what I was "kinda cute" in when I was 35!

    There is a word! It is "appropriate"!!

    It applies "across the board"!

    Dress, decorating,all of it!

    Appropriate kinda says it all!

    However; we are being invaded by people who are certain that "bigger is better" and; my feeling is that we better start zoning restrictions!

    (it is way too late in many places!!!)

    "Beverly Park"

    Terifying! Nothing short of terrifying!

    Someone has to take a stand!
