For Fashion Month: SKIRTS

                             FOR SPRING

   Louis the XIV declared that "Fashion is the mirror of history." I think his observation was on the   money, speaking of which, fashion today is really a business. I've become nonchalant to the business of fashion along with the flamboyant evolution of its self promotion. The artistry still remains out of the public eye, but in the imaginations and craftsmanship of the atelier

  Skirts are a personal favorite. The earliest skirts observed were specifically to cover and protect the genitals from insects, the swishing motion was a deterrant to keep the harrasment in check. The  haute designs of  skirts today have metamorphosized from long, bouffant, hoops and bustles to hobbled, maxi, midi, mini, a-line, bell, pouf, dirndle, straight, pencil, slit, pleated, circle,  full, tailored and statement. Wow! Quite a selection...
  Here are a few favorite skirts for Spring:

                                      MARNIE (cotton/silk organdy circle skirt) Amazing

                                    LANVIN (pique' scuba -jersey) Yikes! This skirt is fantastic.                        


 Wondering what to wear under these gems?  I would not advise going
commando. Remember what happened to Hathaway?  Check these panties by Stella McCartney:
I used to wear panties like these when I was a kid.


 I ordered them in Black and Pale Pink, love, love, love these!
