When the summer ends and the fall winds start to blow, the skimpy sundresses and chunky espadrilles are tucked away and replaced with heavier fabrics and more sophisticated silhouettes.  From September until well into the new year, it seems we are bombarded with non stop parties, events, and holidays – kicking off with fashion week and finally ending with a midnight kiss.  That’s when a lady needs to make sure she is prepared to dress up and get down.  A long silky gown in neutrals or jewel tones is a surefire hit for any event requiring a bit more glamour than skinnies and a (faux) fur coat.  Elegant, sophisticated, and very feminine.  This is what timeless glamour is all about.
