"It is my intent to showcase that which I consider wearable art.
Clothing that is whimsical, dramatic, avant-garde and on the
cutting edge of design - as seen through my eyes.
Brilliance and madness are interchangeable.
This is my style inspiration. I invite you into my world."

REMEMBERING OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAMOR

Being a collector of vintage clothing particularly of the 1940's I was drawn to this
pictorial musing of Old Hollywood and starlet glamor.

The thing I love most about this era of fashion is the attention to detail.
The line came from fabric and tailoring.
It showed just enough skin to tantalize the admirer into
wanting more.


Above a very Lauren Bacall outfit. Full in the sleeve and pant leg to accentuate a small waist.


Bette Davis in All About Eve. The hair and cigarette are unmistakable.



I love the simplicity of the white shirt and black slacks and Jean Harlow hair.
