Yesterday, when looking for something, I found something else. And then something else yet again.
Here’s my first find, above, a “vintage” image of Angela Lindvall wearing a Tom Ford for YSL dress.
This was back in the day when YSL made that great brown suede Nadja bag (a rose) and he traced the rose through other items in his collection as well. I ordered the bag from BG, and thought it was poorly crafted (globs of glue on the seams—ick!).
I didn’t have the opportunity to try the dress, but I must have been smitten, because I saved the clipping all these years. And yes, I still like it!
I have another watery find too: this charming map of Bath:
My small then-family-of-three visited one summer. We went to the Pump Room, sampled some of the (awful!) sulphur water, and walked and walked and walked.
Would the YSL dress have been right for the restorative Bath waters? Probably not, but it’s pretty to imagine an updated Austen heroine wearing it.
