Imagine how much more smoothly everything would go without language jumping in the way all the time and complicating things. Scientific fields like biology, astronomy, and medicine could get a little bit tricky so we’ll allow for written communication, but imagine how great it would be if people could never speak out loud to one another. No one could belie the true feelings and intent expressed by their eyes and actions by falsely negating them with their mouths. The act of arguing would become so tedious that everyone would just stop doing it, and being forced to take the time to write out one’s words would encourage people to choose them more carefully. And if Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin films are any indication, deliciously hilarious hijinks would ensue. This week we’re tearing a page out of the silent film playbook to help you step back in time and into a genre where an archly raised eyebrow is all it takes to scorn a fella and where someone will always be ready to swoop in at the last minute to untie you from the train tracks before you get squished.
The Zamora Dress is a simple, gorgeous little statement that looks equally the part of the lady at lunch and the lady on the lam. It combines a classic 50’s silhouette with the easiness of its soft, drapey rayon construction and stands out from the crowd quite a bit, so when you escape from the chain gang and stow away on the good ship Damfino you’ll want to bring along the Tie Waist Coat to cover up and blend in with all the other ladies and gentlemen. In a beautiful shade of ivory cream and with a thick, patterned texture that whispers “touch me”, this jacket is the perfect segue into Spring, standing loud and proud in stark, solid brightness against the grimy dregs of February. You’ll need the pockets to keep your hands warm, so make sure you have your Frisco Handbag in Hobo’s signature buttery-soft leather to stash your compact, handkerchief, lipstick, and wallet. Not that you’ll need it; when you prance into Picadilly Circus on the tippy toes of your Summer Bucket pumps, some stone-faced gent will surely fall so hard head over your heels that he’ll insist on buying your beans. With a smoky, translucent heel and just a hint of jewel-tone color, these shoes say everything that needs to be said about how you expect to be treated– like a rare creature of beauty, a butterfly princess. And as a safety measure to prevent the poor chap from drowning in the deep expressiveness of your eyes, sport the triple triangle dangle earrings that point– rather indelicately, but it’s best to be direct– straight down. Ssshhhhhhhhhhh!
