Fall 2008: Lady Like Looks

Say what you will about the lady like looks of the season, but i think the many Cory Kennedy wannabe's of the world would benefit from taking a leaf out of this look. The structure, the polish, and refinement would make any girl fit to meet the parents.

It's probarbly not an everyday look for most, but work, specials events and family gatherings can most certainly call on this almost royal look.

As much fuss as can be made about Cory Kennedy, I don't believe any girl wants to truly be like her. They might enjoy playing the part for a while, but that's it.
I certainly couldn't be with a CK.

How I WISH the world still dressed like this. I love the classiness and easy elegance. Reminds me of a Hitchcock movie...

I'm too young to pull this off but its nice references for the future.

I linked you a while ago, but I didn't ask, I hope you don't mind.

Trash can't work all the time and Cory Kennedy (i'm embarrassed that I know her name) will soon be gone.
classic style will always win over grunge.

Argh...Cory Kennedy! Beyond hope, I'm afraid.

That last suit, lower right, is totally me in 1991. This was during the grunge era, with grunge boyfriend, and the two collided unhappily. Bye, bye boyfriend!

Oh, I love the ladylike looks at the moment. The ode to mid- century tailoring is wonderful. I have a vintage fashion site so I'm thrilled with the polished and glamorous looks borrowed from decades past. The twenties through to the fifties are currently being revived by designers and I couldn't be happier!!!
