Cate Blanchett, Zhou Xun, and Emily Blunt for Portofino, A Sparkle to the Wrist.

It’s too much. It’s just all too much. Cannot cope.

1907: England’s Best-Dressed Man Is a Pretty Little Woman, And She’s Here to Dictate Fashions to the Men of New York

Some of Hetty King’s rules for evening attire from the article:

"Wear black bone buttons on your white evening vest.
Wear a white corded or black bow tie.
For a top coat, wear a tight-fitting black cloth, slightly belied as to shape, reaching to the knees.
Whatever you do, don’t—please don’t—offend Miss King by wearing inharmonious ties.
'The swell dresser never wears a loud tie or loud hose,' says the Johnnies' fashion plate, 'though I must confess there is a certain latitude in this on account of a diversity of tastes. I always prefer a black silk tie when possible.'”

….

"Miss King carries a white elephant with her in the form of a walking stick. The handle is awhite ivory elephant set with forty-five jewels, fourteen of which are diamonds. The stick was given to her and it is insured for $100.

'You know it is absolutely necessary to carry a swagger stick,' said Miss King seriously.”

~From The evening world. (New York, N.Y.), 04 Oct. 1907. Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers. Lib. of Congress.

I love suits!

This is the first one I ever owned, borrowed from my father as I was about 17-18 years old (I’m now in my mid 30’s) to dress up as “private investigator”, together with a white shirt, matching tie and a trenchcoat, he never got it back - obviously ^^ 

Well, he got the coat back, but only because I got my own tailor-made one shortly after, but putting that suit on felt so … right in many ways, and after I’ve worn it for one night, I never wanted to take it off again, so I kept it and started wearing it in every day life, too. Didn’t really feel like dressing up anyways.

I already got my clothes from the men’s department as well before, just because I felt like it, without really being able to find words for that feeling. But the suit was something very special.

Well, I just was about to clean up my wardrobe a bit and felt like trying it on again after so many years. I’ve got my own made-to-measure suits now, of course, but this is a very meaningful piece of clothing for me - and it happens to be my dad’s wedding suit ;)

this is amazing combo of clothes, the buttons on the sweater are perfect to the button on your shirt and wrap around your breasts in the prettiest ways. three buttons undone though that’s too much.
