Wise Words Wednesday….

Wise words have been moved to Wednesday just in case the post title doesn’t give it away.

“Glamour is what makes a man ask for your telephone number. But it also is what makes a woman ask for the name of your dressmaker.”

 – Lilly Dache

As I have just finished reading her biography “Talking through my hats” and having discovering my milliner soul mate I have to include this quote which gives me, as a milliner, goosebumps.

“You see, a woman’s hat is close to her heart, though she wears it on her head. It is her way of saying to the world: “See, this is what I am like!” Or – “This is how I should like to be.”

– Lilly Dache

  1. “… it also is what makes a woman ask for the name of your dressmaker.” these words could have been my granny’s words in the 50s and 60s … she just had a few new pieces a year but everything was special. she was the most glamorous lady in the small town after the war and early wirtschaftswunder years. wearing a lot of new look dior styles she made by hand and with help of her friended seamstress. she always loves to telll me the story, when she was asked to work in fashion … sadly she reworked all her fabulous garments into kids clothes for her two girls, when they got out of fashion.
