Where is style born?
Maybe style is culled from what we see around us. Look at Chanel in the sailor's jerseys. She saw them on the French coast.
My mother is turning 80 in a couple of weeks and we are going to dinner with her and my dad - all four of her children, assorted spouses and partners and a couple of grandchildren. I had the idea that it would be fun to wear something reminiscent of the year she was born - 1930. Nutty, I guess. But, we are a rather serious family and I think she would think it was kind of fun. So I was researching the 1920's and '30s and came across these great photos. I swear I must have lived in Europe in the Twenties. These clothes just feel like home to me. Love them.
