This picture by artist Isabelle Oziol de Pignol recently appeared on a french site. The article was about mothers that are proud of their daughters–it was very touching.  Thank You Isabelle! Here is a Maman-5 

Don't forget–the Lion
Parting with one of my beloved CR lion belts! 


Quick question for Dallas readers–does anyone have a great alterations shop they can recommend?

    Harry’s Tailor Shop on Preston Rd across from Valley View Mall- He does impeccable work and has been written up in local papers. He’s on the pricey side but he’s worth it. Oh… and lots of shops use him for alterations (like Billy Reid). That’s how I discovered him.

    You must go to Park Cities Custom Tailors (in the same strip center as Petco near lovers lane and the tollway). Ask for Julie. They are amazing, fast, and inexpensive. They come with my highest recommendation (They are also good in emergencies- they turned around a formal dress in a day for me…).

    Hey Judy,
    I have those infamous Balenciaga platform cork shoes (seen on the
    olsen twins) in a size 39.5, 40, or 40.5.
    They actually run a half size big! So I would go down a size
    Are you interested?
    Love the blog and I know you and your daughter have a passion for shoes!
    Let me know what you think and I can send images to you of the actual shoes.

    Amazing drawing! I heartily second wroxton’s recommendation of Harry’s Tailor Shop on Preston Road (close to LBJ). Amazing work and fast turn around.

    Unique Tailor at 5863 East Mockingbird. They are very good, very fast and very reasonable. They are always busy, so be prepared to wait in line.

    I agree with Harry’s Tailor Shop on Preston Road between LBJ and Alpha. As well, Neon’s Tailor on Spring Valley does a lot of high end work and quality work. I go between the two places.

    Hello Judy!
    Another fan from your site from Baltimore!
    The dress that Zoe is wearing is a vintange Haltson. I have it and you can’t imagine how amazing it is! I will sell it soon on ebay, together with a huuuuuuuuge Ram CR buckle (need some funding for my MBA studies…)

    Your collection is insane. I think you’re the only blogger I’ve come across that actually talk about vintage anything and I’ll take seriously. One of these days when I stop being a poor law student, I’ll invest in one of your amazing pieces.

    Great article and sketch! I would be totally “fiere de ma fille” if I had a daughter like Jane. (I’m in my twenties now and don’t have children yet but hopefully i will someday!)
