I agree, she does – that coat has the most perfect fit.

Style makes an event of the moment, makes every day an occasion–which every day is, by the way. Sometimes it takes style to remind me of this.

The bee-hive hair style is reminiscent of my youth. What a handsome trio.
April 18, 2010 at 9:38 pm
Both of these ladies could easily have come off of a recent runway! Love the buttons on that jacket and the whole shape of the other woman's beehive and tunic-y dress or coat.
April 18, 2010 at 9:53 pm
i love this so much! especially the woman on the left–her beehive is pretty epic!

To 4:27, Milt-fresh_best-dressed:
It's easy to memorialize the past out of history, as if people were less interested in fads, but in expressing some more pure essence of inner style. And mythologizing the past, and foolish.
These figures are not totems of some more pure expression of identity and personality. Their clothes are as much about outward influence, pressure, fades, and consumerism, as they are about inward expression.
As we look on these images, it's too easy to make them into symbols of personal expression, rather products of histories larger than themselves.

She also looks very similar to the girl in your recent post 'On the Street…..Abstract Inspiration, Milano'.

Ah love!! So many decades of amazing style…. sometimes I feel like I was born too late. Loving the coats and hat.

This photo is actually of my parents & my Aunt…
My Mother, Marie-Louise Spano, is the one with the hat. My Aunt, Susan Spano, is the one with the Beehive & the man in the middle is my Father, Charles Garone…
This photo was taken in 1962 in NYC. Old photos of my parents, such as this one, were very influential & inspired me to persue a career in the fashion industry. I always had the coolest parents in grade-school,etc & aside from style, they are also the most important people in my life.
While they are much older now, my Mother's gentle sexy way, is still going strong…its amazing how while our faces & bodies change, our soles still sparkle at any age.
On a side note: You can't see it in this blurry photo, but my Mother & Aunt Susan were both pros with liquid eyeliner! ;)

I adore to find vintage photos to observe the vintage styles and this one is unique.I wish I were living in their times.

my hair doens't fit a hat

Such photos are the treasure. They are the only windows that take us back to classic fashion. Adore the hair do and the coat. Hat is a little drab for me.
April 20, 2010 at 6:16 pm
I love the juxtaposition of the floppy hat with the jacket, but what I love most is the lady in white's coiffed hair…why can't this still be in style today?
April 22, 2010 at 7:19 am
They just don't make clothes like they used to, sigh.

la elegancia debe estar en el primer lugar en el mundo de la moda
