Tia Whittington’s Chic Boutique, HKyle

Tia had a talent for monogramming and embroidery, and wore one … Read More Tia Whittington’s Chic Boutique, HKyle

Forays Into Flossy’s Closet: Chanel Handbags

When I was a little girl I loved to play in my mother’s designer laden closet. I loved to walk around in her shoes, model her clothes in the mirror, and play make believe with her handbags. When I grew older and I was able to wear some of her things, she practically had to fight me off with a broom to keep me … Read More Forays Into Flossy’s Closet: Chanel Handbags

Louis Vuitton Historical Trivia

  It’s obvious by now that Louis Vuitton is my favorite fashion house based upon the number of posts on the subject. I’m attracted to the brand’s aesthetic and vintage appeal. I enjoy the old stories of how a poor French boy moved to Paris and started a small luggage company in 1854 that grew into an empire! In this post, I will discuss … Read More Louis Vuitton Historical Trivia

Luxury-ish Finds January 2018

I am definitely a lover of luxury fashion, but I don’t frown upon designer-inspired fashion. Let’s face it, not everyone has unlimited funds. Even those that do may not choose to spend a lot of their money on depreciating assets such as clothes, shoes and handbags. For those that want the look for less, I say more power to you! In honor of all … Read More Luxury-ish Finds January 2018

My Ancient Japanese Handbag

I am relatively young,  but I  still finished college before there was the Internet. I had to do research the old fashioned way using the Dewey Decimal System and microfiche film. I am used to working hard to … Read More My Ancient Japanese Handbag
