For a night out in white might I suggest one of these 3 beauts? Now let’s just cut to the chase and gaze at that AMAZING cubic zirconia belt! I don’t know much about it other than it came out of an estate in Montreal. Perhaps Persian? Being cubic zirconias, that would date it to post 1960’s. She may just need to sprout some lips in order to tell us the rest of her story.

Chocolate hues and vining grapes set the tone for this label heavy autumn display. Go from day to cocktail hour in that one-pocketed Prada on the right with a toss of the cardigan/blazer. It’s a super versatile workhorse of a dress! That centre Pucci- not so much. It’s more of a show pony, meant to dazzle your on-lookers with it’s fab print and poet sleeves. Separates are not to be overlooked over on the left. Dior ruffles and ribbons abound on that romantic crochet cardigan. It’s paired with a warm wool Celine pleated skirt which would look sweet with some tall leather boots. And there is loads more in store kittens!

Veering away from our usual frock filled windows, we are focusing this week on outerwear instead. In particular; the Burberry trench.  Ever wonder why they are called ‘trench’ coats? Well, it’s because Burberry (or Aquascutum-the jury is still out on this) developed the coat for use by the British and French soldiers fighting in the trenches during WWI. Now you know! Get ready to fight the elements this fall and dodge those drops in a classic piece that is tried and true.
