Simple Math

I'm aware that this isn't an earth shattering idea, but it's a swanky little trick to avoid wardrobe boredom and the cold.

It's like a facelift! Just keep it on the simple side because a nip here, a tuck there, a bit of plumage there, and suddenly you look like Jocelyn Wildenstein, understand?  Have I mentioned I have this little fur collar collecting problem?

Collars like these are everywhere on ebay, not to mention thrift shops and hanging out on old coats. Don't be afraid to scavenge: Denning and Fourcade (the design kings of opulent, style Rothschild interiors of yetseryear) used fur scraps from old coats to piece together an entire rug.  You can find really lush ones this way; just avoid dry patches like the plague.




Wardrobe basics.








Basics that have personality (multiple personalities, really):









Simple equation, see?

I LOVE this post. Fabulous!! I am loving that long tuxedo coat dress too. My favorite of the bunch is the black feather boa, reminds me of Ann Demeulemeester.
