The Lady Returns

and for your listening enjoyment this is Thank Heaven For Little Girls by Chet Baker

Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia

What is it about the beginning of September ?

In the realm of fashion and other things, to me,
 Fall becomes such an elegant notion
something that diverts me from my love of summer things
and brings butterflies at the very thought of crisp cool air

Is it the throwback epitomy of all things ladylike ?
Is it the gloves, the lipstick, the velvet and tweeds ?

Yes yes yes and yes !

So calm clean and unapologetically feminine

A subtle suggestion I might have special occasions to attend ?

So what is it about this time that has me more smitten kittens?
Can't quite put my little gloved finger on it

( Maybe I forget it's this way every year )

What kind of plans does a girl make 
when she arrives at this "peak of chic" ?

I don't know but I'll be sure to get back to you ...

Hi Lisa - I couldn't agree more, fall has always brought anticipation and excitement. It was always about planning my fall wardrobe; cutting out images from my favorite magazines & having a master plan. Living in hot Houston that no longer happens. There is no fall clothes planning as one season just feels like the next. If I'm lucky I'll be able to break out a sweater by Dec. I'm dying to buy a pair of long gloves & a fedora! Maybe if swing that trip to Paris next fall?! Loved this post Lisa. Have a great long weekend. xo
