I'm so happy about the way the trends are going this season. Out with the trashy, in with the classy. (I just came up with that! haha) Seriously, I can't remember the last time ladylike, chic, and elegance has been this present in fashion, and it's about time if you ask me. I'm all for innovative design, but there's something about timeless and classy clothes. Chic never goes out of style. I have a few books on Haute Couture and icons of the 40's and 50's that I just love to look at, and dream, dream away to the days when elegance was an art form. Christobal Balenciaga, Christian Dior...aahh. Not to mention Coco Chanel who practically invented the word chic.
Todays women might have a few things to learn from that generation.
Combine that sophistication with modern design and you have a winner. Like in this editorial, pretty isn't it?
