matching elegance

i sometimes wonder why everyday-fashion seemed so much more elegant back in the 50s and beginning 60s. but then, it actually isn't so hard. don't you think a matching jacket to your dress, made of the same fabric and in the same style, would produce an air of elegance immediately?
























just think, to have the luxury of a matching jacket to each of your dresses... (ok, the gloves and hat actually do have an impact as well..)

























i think that's something i'll try to do this year. sew a dress and a matching jacket.

I sometimes think that today's fashion is no more about looking beautiful being elegant but about making s statement and differentiate oneself from others - up to the point of looking ugly (e.g the heroin chic). I so love elegant fasion - great idea to sew a complete and matching outfit!
