This window is turning heads already. The chartreuse green and small floral print combination is arresting, we guess… The centre 2 pc gown is by Chanel and she is flanked by her 1950’s cotton darlings.

   This week’s window is one of our favorites, to date….We often get asked if we carry bigger sizes, and yes, we do. Most women are about a size 8-12 now a days, thus, we sell those sizes the quickest. This window is a testament to that, don’t be fooled by the mannequins. We pin the backs of the dress in. The dress on the right is about an 8-10 and the one on the left is about a 6. We have many 0-4, but we strive to keep our 8-12 customers happy too.

   One of our very first customers ever, Athena over at www.vitamindaily.com, sent us an email yesterday. It was regarding her 1960’s Valentino couture skirt that she got from us awhile back. She states; “I wore this skirt to my daughter’s christening dinner on the island of Folegandros in the Greek Cyclades. Such a wonderful purchase. I absolutely adore it!” And we love it on you too Athena!
