I really wanted to write a Christmas post, but couldn't find something that I thought was good and decorative arts related to write about. I searched for ornaments that might be nice and convey the feeling of the season, but found nothing. Then I decided to go with fashion. Clothes never let me down, and I'm always happy to look at pretty things that I can never own or really wear.
I found the Christian Dior dress that is above on the Met Museum website under the heading "Classicism in Modern Dress." I love Dior, and think that his designs really epitomize what we now consider "classic" lines in women's clothing. Wouldn't this be lovely for your holiday parties? Not sure what holiday parties I have that I would wear this to, but I would love to sweep in and dance around with my full dance card dangling from my wrist. Maybe I've had too much eggnog.
