There is an old timer’s advantage in knowing the qualities of natural fabrics and the luxury of fine craftsmanship. But I also want to acknowledge how far we have come in making our life so much easier with innovative stretch everyday-wear, drip dry durable synthetics fibers, cushioned sneakers, and insulated affordable winter covers. My interest in clothes still gives me the joy of renewing my looks, of exploring numerous personalities, of glimmering and shining once in a while. It gives me the opportunity to give visual treats to others, to confidently wear the old luxury basics and enjoy the day. That’s what’s amazing about clothes today: The possibilities for Chic on the Cheap are endless !
