with temps reaching 100f today here in Houston it doesn't seem appropriate to be talking about 


does it?

however, it will arrive just like it always does, 
and we already have many pre-fall outfits in the shop,
which I will get to in a later post.

for those of us who cannot or do not want to purchase 20 new
Fall outfits there is one winning palette which never fails:

from Chanel's Fall Ready-to-Wear Collection
Black & White Dress $6850.00 @ Chanel only
as shown in August Harper'sBazaar editorial

or this

Cynthia Steffe
 S M L

which proves once again that
is always right.

or this
Alice & Olivia
dark navy "Winnifred" turtleneck maxi dress
with the ruched sleeve treatment

an amazing dress which can be worn every single day throughout the season,
dressed to work, to go out, wear with boots, flats, tall high heels, fab jewelry,
giant handbag or a small top handle one.
ohhhh, let me count the ways this could be worn.

goodness, just imagine how many places you could wear this little number,
ethically harvested (shearing) lamb-wool, not skin


the thing is...IF we don't get them now they won't be available when we need/want them.
seriously, guys, the manufacturers are only cutting a few extras over the number of units ordered during market week.
it's not at all like it used to be before 2008.
so, usually there are no re-orders, no special orders for our clients.
sad, but true.  the rag trade has changed drastically, now it's all about the bottom line,
that's it & that's all.
