Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress. - Coco Chanel

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What was fashionable or beautiful fades quickly as new styles and trends rapidly replace each other. They quicken the heart of the potential buyer who sees "a must have" and keeps the economy running at a clip. Sometimes there are designs that transcend time: this is one of them....for me. I hope you enjoy this timeless elegance from the 1950's.
