Pearls and rocker fringe. Can’t believe it’s only Tuesday, and we still have to get through #Thanksgiving. #DesperatelySeekingANap

That top from last night may be long gone, but I just put this one out that we just finished. Let’s see how long it lasts. #oneofakind #everyoneneedsmoresparklesintheirlife

This is happening more and more often (and believe me, I’m not complaining!), but we hadn’t even finished this top/jacket before it waltzed out the door. What’s even cooler is that it was the only one. Never to be made again because we don’t have any more of this fabric. #luckylady #fancytop #sequinsandlace

I decided to layer my new favorite things and it totally worked. The great thing is that you can completely take each piece and put it with something else, even jeans. #HolidaysAreComing

Redid the showroom today because we keep selling out of our new additions. Thank goodness we have more great stuff, like new velvet ponchos in delicious colors, in stock. Stay tuned for even more fall/holiday greatness coming soon to the Store and website!

As Miles would say, “I️ want my cozy cozy.” From his mouth to your closet. Also, I was really digging the weather we had last week. #BringItBack

When the backs are better than the fronts, you have motivation to face Monday. At least I do. We are finishing some extra special items that are perfect for the holidays this week, and I can’t wait!

#PublicServiceAnnouncement! #Velvet #ponchos are a thing. I️ have declared it thus, and thus it shall be. We only have a few in stock and at $395, it’s a steal. Seriously, you are going to thank me.

On hump day, it’s good to take a step back, relax, and get a new top. #amiright? Seriously, sleeves, stretch lace (read comfortable), and you can easily wear it with jeans or dress it up for a night out on the town. #limitededition

The absolutely beautiful Suzy Parker in a golden quilted brocade coat designed by Marc Bohan for Originala, photographed by Karen Radkai - Vogue November 1, 1958 from my collection. 🍂🍁✨

«Opening up a whole new avenue of night looks: the glorious coat idea over a splinter of day-length dress. Other new avenue of beauty: the glorious red dazzle of Revlon’s new lipstick, Fifth Avenue Red. Here the coat idea is in green and good quilted brocade, day-dress length, what-could-be-simpler-shape.

Fur, feathers, sequins, & fringe. What else could you possibly want on a Tuesday night? Seriously, I’m asking? #Blessed

Stripes and sequins will never fail to make us smile, even when you’re having an especially tough week. #LimitedEdition only means that we’ll have to keep being creative. #Darn.

Suzy Parker in a marigold yellow gown by Scaasi, 1956.
Arnold Scaasi (1930-2015) was born Arnold Isaacs (try to read it backward) in Montreal. A visit to a stylish aunt in Australia when he was fourteen set him on the path to a fashion career. He studied in Montreal and in Paris, apprenticed at the house of Paquin, worked with the legendary Charles James in New York City, then opened his own couture salon in 1964.
With a heavy reliance on elaborate details and embroidery, with an eye to what would make his refined customers feel and look like old-fashioned glamour pusses, he accoutered a coterie of clients from Lauren Bacall to Brooke Astor, Diahann Carroll to Elizabeth Taylor. He dressed Mamie Eisenhower, Hillary Clinton, and both Bush first ladies; he once bragged that he refused to give Jackie Kennedy clothes for free.
A powerful cohort of society women may have hung with him in the early sixties, but he came to the attention of a far wider audience when he designed the notorious sheer trouser ensemble Barbra Streisand wore to collect her Oscar for Funny Girl in 1969—it was scandalous then, and in truth it is still pretty riveting.

His remarks could be as frisky as some of his designs. "American women lack the innate good taste of European women,” he told the Washington Daily News in 1958. “Designers have to trick American women into being stylish." Scaasi was presented with the Council of Fashion Designers of America Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996.

All the shades of purple in this beautiful Adrian evening coat photographed by Horst - Vogue November 1, 1948 from my collection. 💗💜
.
«The Venetian idea. Adrian draws upon the sweeping lines of a doge’s coat, for one of the most spectacular of the new evening coats almost too beautiful to take off. Heavy Rémond-Holland satin in shades of mauve-to-purple with a trailing mauve cape, a fawning collar. Designed for a ball dress in the same satin». 💜💕

The past two days have been a bit manic, but today ended on a high note! So many of my favorite pieces found loving homes today, and I schedule a meeting for something about which I’m super excited. #fingerscrossed #cantwaittospillthebeans
