Yesterday was the birthday of the great Diana Vreeland. Diana Vreeland was all about the life less ordinary. We all could use a little - or a lot - of Diana Vreeland's extraordinary in our own lives So Why Don't You... take a memo from Diana...

I do hope that you willall get cracking and get in divine
things that would make an amusing wardrobe...
Let's remember bright orange satin evening slippers
that Gres shows with all sorts of contrasting colors.
It is a most chic and exciting touch. They are just a little
Roger Vivier pumps with a small eveing heel but the color is
suberb with everything.
I am extremely disappointed that no one has taken the slightest interest in freckles on the model...
We wish to use greens that are everything from spring grass to
bright jade - and the nearer the spring grass the smarter
it will be...
I repeat again the importance of knee socks...
Certainly we need belts --very badly--in this effect--to be worn with everything--but I think the galloon, lace, jewels, everything must be beautifully handled--because we are touching on a very luxurious look with lots of splendour...
Don't forget the serpent...
The sticky situation with fringe is, of course, extremely serious.
Let's promote grey.
At the present moment how much grey have we got?
I think that we can consider that the gypsy look has now gotten into the bloodstream of most people who are interested in fashion.
This is the year of the ribbon.
No one ever looked prettier in ribbons than Chanel.
Please don't miss the divine shoes in the de Rosnay pix.
They are just Divine. I think these are works of art.
