Meet the new fashion collector. She will be about for a long time. Her lipstick is red. She wears only navy, ivory and grey, but so cleverly that there’s no limit to the flattering effects she can compute. Her clothes are so simple and beautiful. It all looks easy. She spends more money on her clothes than most woman, but, when they’re searching around for something to wear, she’s already perfectly dressed. When their clothes are beginning to look wrong, hers are right. So in the end, she probably spends no more than they. Here’s how she does it…

Try a touch of seasonal sorcery – swop clothes with yourself instead of with your sister or friend. Mix tweed with satin, sweaters with fur; play addition and subtraction with your wardrobe to achieve subtle solutions for every climate, every occasion and every mood.

I have just listed a beautiful Annacat dress over at Vintage-a-Peel. It’s almost identical to one worn by Janet Lyle (co-founder of the label) in 1968 and is just about one of the most spectacular dresses of all time. Midnight blue velvet, trimmed with ostrich feathers. I ask you, what is better?
There are many other incredible new pieces up there, so please do go and check them out. Treat yourself! Get someone else to treat you! It’s Christmas, a time for treats and gorgeous frocks…

Dress by Jean Muir
Impossibly beautiful editorial, even if it is touching on the rather unpleasant subject of narcissism. There are a few images from this which have been reproduced many times, but these others less so – so I thought I would give them a well-deserved airing here.
