While some companies are off looking for the latest & greatest new look, Vanity Fair has captured the essence of their brand by going back to their roots.

Their latest ad campaign calls on one of days past (1955 to be exact) featuring elegant ladies tastefully posing in their VF lingerie.

Vanity Fair has brought back the very essence of their brand and conjured up the sense of beauty and femininity that lacy undergarments should evoke.

Have you seen the “modern” ads? What do you think?

Note the occasion, the date, the to and from. And, make it lovely.

What a wonderful, throwback treat such as this one given to my great grandfather from his

sister Lena as a Christmas gift back in 1912.

Who knew a dictionary could be such a treasured heirloom?


Walk like a lady.008

The grace and elegance of a woman’s gate in heels with a high worn skirt simply cannot be matched.

Is the simple act of walking an art form in itself?  Certainly. As a gracious host or joining in as a guest at an entertaining evening event, the ability to glide through the room with a simple sweeping movement is an enviable joy some women hold over others less classically taught.

I admit I Googled it … “How to walk like a lady.” Searching how I might share with you the steps you might take to add this certain swagger to your very own list of heirloom qualities.

Not certain what I was looking for, trying to capture the movement into a simple list of how-to’s – chin up, toes pointed, hips leading. I was reminded by my search of the practicing techniques once used, rather rarely today I would think, of placing a nice hardcover book atop your head and walking a straight and sweeping line.

Much like the taste of your favorite recipe or the smell of the sweetest scent, it seems that I can’t quite capture treasured walk of a lady into words. Though, its sweet throwback grace is recognizable when you see it present in today’s society and it’s simply lovely!
