Dior’s Fall 2009 Couture Collection echoed a better era for fashion (in my opinion)- The 1950s. In the 50s, clothes were more feminine and had a an innocent edge to it and impeccable quality that today’s mass produced clothes cannot compete with. Also the silhouette, was perfect for any body type. Luckily, with the few fashion houses that still create the dying art of couture, the spirit of the early decades can still be created with same grace as previous decades, only with a much higher price tag. In this collection, the undergarment was the repeated theme throughout. The hidden foundation is what makes the outfit sit well, but with true John Galliano misfit style, the foundation became the center of attention. How fitting.


HAPPY BASTILLE DAY!! Eat Cake and celebrate French independence from extravagant Royals! (Even though Marie Antoinette was true style icon!)

Bettie Page Clothing has a wonderful line of attire without the stench of a grandmother’s attic! All pieces are brand new but and made in a retro – vintage style of the ’40’s and ’50s. The above are my favorite picks.I love that sailor look, it reminds me that cartoon “Bon Voyage” with Sylvester the cat and Tweety bird. Come to think of it, 50’s clothing can look cartoony sometimes. Like Betty-Boop. That’s not a bad thing in my book, but then again my world can be cartoonish in my mind sometimes. Yes, I need help. Anydelusion, Bettie Page Clothing has a boutique in Las Vegas (at the Planet Hollywood Resort/ The Shops at the Miracle Mile) and is available online. Prices range from $80- $200, not much to look like a Glamorous Pin-up from th ’50s.
