Craving: Black Seamed Cigarette Pants
Here's a detail from a Piazza Sempione pair, in sateen, though I'd prefer matte:
I don't know whether Laura Petrie and Ann-Margret's seams were raised at center, but these iconic photos have the spirit.
Although I can't seem to shake my desire, the above women can, well, shake their seams.
**The Gstaad stuff is ironic; I'm still smarting from the time in 1992 when I waited six months to get an appointment with Frederic Fekkai to cut my very long hair, only to be bumped because he had broken his leg skiing in Gstaad. I was almost in tears when I saw him cutting hair in his cast--not for him, but for my selfish little self who felt slighted that this first-time client didn't rate. Long hair story short: the talented Mark Garrison cropped my hair that day.
