  1. Thanks, this is interesting and educational as always. I particularly like the two rather plain dresses described as Timeless Classics. I love the narrow leather belts. I'd wear either of these to work & probably no one would even notice that they're vintage. They really are both timeless and classic.

  2. Thank you for these. They are all really resonating with me right now. I'm so inspired for my fall wardrobe. I especially am enamored with the great trousers and wool suits. I could get away with wearing those vintage and at work!
