  • 💙My blue heaven silk taffeta gown from the early 1950’s sold at the exclusive Jay Thorpe boutique in New York. Pure drama and literally the color of Elizabeth Taylor’s eyes, this evening gown has a massive sweep and is made up of at least 10 yards of silk taffeta. The bodice is fully boned and lined. See My Story for more pictures and measurements. Size medium. DM if interested. 💙

  • Met with curators Lisa Mason and Georgina Ripley at the National Museum of Scotland today. If you’ve never visited it’s worth the pilgrimage. Their current exhibition includes numerous KTA pieces dating from a 1650s doublet with white on white embroidery to Comme des Garçons via Schiaparelli, Poiret, Ossie Clark, Charles James and others. It’s a real treasure trove of historically important pieces, many donated by aristocratic Scottish families. Swipe through to see some of the KTA contributions....

  • Two months from today, I will qualify for AARP.  Yup, I am turning fifty.

This photo was taken around ten years ago while spending some time in the South of France.  I had just been to the flea market in Aix-en-Provence where I had procured the straw hat, 1920s shirt and vest, and a pair of sailor pants, worn with espadrilles (not shown) and some 1970s Hermès chains.  I felt on top of the world while perched on a medieval wall in Lacoste and breathing in the calming scent of lavender. 
In my fifties, I wish to return to this state of peace - only wiser and continuing to learn new lessons of life. 
What lesson have you learned recently as an adult that has fundamentally affected your life?

  • 🍀Bir şiir yazacaksak eğer gidene ve kalana✨. Giden pişman olacaktı, kalansa yorgun🌸. Gidenin arkasından seyretmekse bize kalan, güneşin batışını izlemek gibi. Hüznün bulutları çöktüyse yüreğine eğer. Zulaya sakladığın bir kaç umut tanesi, bir miktar sabır kırıntısı yeniden doğuşumuz için bize yetmezmiydi✨. Bırakın giden gittiği ile kalsın, bizse küllerimizden yeniden doğalım🤗.
