'All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go! ' - great Editorial shoot !

This is my favourite shot

This is an Editorial fashion shoot by Steven Meisel I found in Sept 2012 Italian Vogue. 
For me it really reflects an understated style and confidence summing up the times we are living in here in Europe. There may be an economic down turn and it may not be cool to splash bling - but there is no way we are going to be grungie again...style rules. I like the way the girls are photograhed in their Kitchens and comfortable home environment with Pets and of course the odd designer handbag thrown in! - reminiscent of Carrie in 'Sex and the City' - but less glam and down to earth - Franca Sozzanni does it again! 
read the below link - Marc Jacobs has been inspired by this sentiment of dressing up and having nowhere to go !!

Argentinian design talent found in Recoleta Buenos Aires

Walking around up town Buenos Aires in Recoleta  I came across this fashion store in Rodriguez Pena 2023,...the tailored jacket in the window caught my eye, beautifully conceived and stunningly flattering I decided to find out more.
It is an Argentinian clothing company, born, bred and made in Argentina....
The style is classic and confident for a woman who is not afraid to me noticed... 
As the name Aristocracia would suggest it is aimed at the high end elite Polo playing set, the price reflects this....
The value is that you get something special and not to be found anywhere else...comfortable couture....this jacket would not look out of place a Dior catwalk....
