Petit changement de programme, but I don't think you will be disappointed. Tomorrow we'll do mouse up-date and news and views. I'm unexpectedly rushing off to Paris and prepared this post late Sunday night.
You know my raison d'etre is to make you happy.
As it happens, this is a subject that makes me incredibly happy, Freebies!
Every season, in many collections one can find details that cost nothing -- or nearly nothing -- that are legitimate mini-trend touches the designers added to their creations.
Here then is what some did for this fall and winter. Floppy ribbon bows at the neck chez Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana (twice) and Chloe. At Louis Vuitton, black velvet ribbons are tied at the waist for day and night.
You know I have a thing for ribbons so obviously I'm thrilled.
Ed. Note: My fashion instincts are telling me it wouldn't hurt to either pull out of our closets (or his) a waistcoat. They look fresh and new at the moment. They're a nice departure from the ubiquitous jacket.
