Geoffrey Beene. I grew up hearing that name a lot. It was the early 80s and my aunt, whom I practically lived with, was going to fashion school. His name was all over the magazines that came to her in the mail and she kept referencing him. I sort of knew him as a respected American designer, but it wasn’t until much later that I really figured out what his legacy in this country was.

Here is a classic 60s tweed suit from the master himself. I may never get to offer another vintage Beene in my little store, so am currently basking in the glow.

This post is my kick-off to a slew of Beene or Beene-inspired musings and images coming to this blog!

So many of today’s designs are vintage inspired. I love it! Did you notice the matching shoes?   I’m pretty sure this is Valentino spring 2012, which I blogged about earlier.I’m obsessed with the entire collection.

Vintage designer duds from my store. This selection is an offshoot of my latest kick in Parisian fashion panache as I asked myself, surely I have something either fabulously French or something that looks like it should be.

Fashion lusciousness via French couture.

Swoon worthy dresses from the Valentino couture spring collection. It’s Paris Fashion Week! The entire line is full of sheer shoulders, floral prints, and lace details. There is a “prairie romantic” vibe that reminds me of some trends from the late 70s/early 80s.

Working on a little scrapbook on the Buffalo Girls/Nostalgia of Mud collection from Vivienne Westwood. It inspires me when styling 80s fashion and helped with the 80s Krizia sack dress (coming soon!).
