With the downturn in the economy, I've noticed a decrease in the quality of clothing. Things like small seams, inferior workmanship and flimsy materials seem like the current standard. With that, I decided to pull some items from my closet that are of good quality this week.
Sometimes, one can depend on a designer label for high quality. My jacket and skirt are such items; one bought at a fire sale the other second hand. The material in each are luxurious and have lasted the test of time. (Each are over 10 years old.)
Some tid-bits of info regarding these designer duds. When Anne Klein died of breast cancer at 50, do you know who her partner chose as the designer to succeed her? Donna Karan.
This jacket is an Emanual Ungaro found at a fire sale. After Ungaro sold his business in 2005, there was a brief stint from Lindsey Lohan as it's artistic director. Hmmm.
Hi to all visiting from Patti's Visible Monday! And stay tuned for more quality items this week!
