Reinvention



"The look — slim, easy and devoid of embellishment — conveys a feeling of “youth and hopefulness...it reflects austerity and speaks to great elegance without requiring lavish materials."

Back to the Future

You have to love J. Peterman...

Classic Square Neck Black Dress

"Someone once said, "It's never safe to be nostalgic about something until you're absolutely certain there's no chance of it coming back."

True, there's a lot about the 50's we don’t need back, like telephone booth stuffing, panty raids, the Cold War, but I suspect you won't mind this classic coming back.

Doris Day wore a version of it when she played the "innocent" and tried to take Cary Grant's mind off himself.

Fonzie was first smitten with Pinky Tuscadero when she wore it.

Your Mother left her poodle skirt behind, snuck past her parents complaining about 50 cents a gallon gasoline, to hear some rock and roll.

You'll think of something.

Classic Square Neck Black Dress (No. 2596). Upper calf length in a fully lined smooth cotton sateen. Square back and front produces anything but square effect on its victims. Gathered fan shape sleeves frame arms. Further details: Invisible back zipper. Lots of pleat action front and back. Don't forget those bows. Demure. Charming. Sexy as all get out. Dig it?

Don't forget to load "Rock Around the Clock" on your iPod."

Bookbag


A beautifully photographed romantic book about French style and culture—and making a new home in Provence

In 1999, Vicki Archer, with her husband and three children, made a lifelong dream a reality when she bought a seventeenth-century property in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. She spent three years lovingly restoring the farmhouse, bringing back to life the abandoned apple and pear orchards, and planting an olive grove of more than two thousand trees. In My French Life, Vicki shares an insider’s view of life in France— from its landscapes, delicious food, and scents to its charming people. And she offers an intimate portrait of what it’s like to adopt a new home on the other side of the globe. It’s a personal tale of taking risks, facing challenges, and the joyous experience of falling in love with all things French.
