February 1, 2016 § 5 Comments


Countess Jacqueline de Ribes b. July 14th, 1929, is a French aristocrat, designer, businesswoman, and philanthropist.

Jacqueline’s father-in-law described her as a “cross between a Russian Princess and a girl of the Folies Bergère.”  From  The Last Queen of Paris, Vanity Fair, August 31st, 2010.


“Jacqueline is Parisian royalty—the essence of Parisian elegance,” says designer Jean Paul Gaultier, who, in 1999, dedicated an entire collection to de Ribes. “She is also one of the very few who could dress herself divinely but who also knew how to dress others.” From The Queen of Couture – Harper’s Bazaar, Sept. 16th 2015.

When Did Women Stop Wearing Gloves?

February 13, 2014 § 20 Comments

I remember as a child wearing white gloves for special occasions. I found this beautiful photo of my mother and father. Very Mad Men. My mother told me it was taken sometime between 1950 and 1954 at a reception in the garment district before they were married.

My parents sometime in the 1950's.

My parents 1950’s.
