Vintage Words

Your dresses should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to show you’re a lady. – Edith Head, legendary costume designer

Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress. – Coco Chanel

A woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.” – Sophia Loren

“What I really love about them…is the fact that they contain someone’s personal  history…I find myself wondering about their lives. I can never look at a garment…without thinking about the woman who owned it.  How old was she?  Did she work?  Was she married?  Was she happy? When you buy a piece of vintage clothing you’re not just buying a fabric and thread – you’re buying a piece of someone’s past.” – Isabel Wolff, A Vintage Affair
