shop preview: 1930s velvet, 1920s silk charmeuse, and 1950s mink

You can see from the title that the fancy stuff has started to arrive at the shop!  But don't worry: for those who prefer their holidays more cozy-at-home than party-on-the-town, there are also some fantastically warm sweaters coming.

But back to the fancy.  I seem to have acquired a pretty decent collection of black party-worthy dresses, which is both exciting and dismaying.  Black is always my favorite color to wear. . . it's also one of the most difficult to photograph.  Anyway, fellow black dress lovers, watch this space.  There are more coming!
