"Everything was kept in a state of polished and dazzling cleanliness. Nothing was ever tattered. Her Goyas, Bouchers and Reynoldses had been tenderly relieved of years of grime and oxidation. Not a speck of dust had the opportunity of gathering on the books in the air conditioned library. English furniture and crystal candelabras were highly polished; parquet floors were waxed and shining. One even had the feeling that all of the bonbons and the peppermint sweets on the dinner table were thrown out the moment the exquisite flower strewn table cloth was removed."Cecil Beaton The Glass of Fashion 1954
The woman of dazzling cleanliness and waxed and shining parquet floors would wear this Valentino Spring 2014 haute couture dress don't you think? Dream a little haute couture dream...
