what the what!!!!

the process

but for how long?

If you have started The Process we hope you will consider us for his best items that were rarely worn.  Please be sure to examine very well ( we know children ) and launder and press.  We are currently booking fall appointments.  You may pack children's clothing in boxes, bins or hang.  Please no bags.

Burberry for boys: hopefully he did not outgrow it too quickly but if he did we would love to have it

Robert Cavalli for children : designers are no longer just for you

And of course Gap, Gymboree, Janie and Jack.  Surprise us with some of your finds.

We'd love to sell what lies within your little man's closet...
in our Green Hills boutique or our new online site.

over fifty - still out there shopping

" Fifty may be the new 40, but it's not an excuse to raid your daughter's closet. Let's face it, as women age, formerly toned body parts begin to sag and shift. Even if you're in your 50s and you haven't gained an ounce since your 30s, clothes just don't fit the same. And for those still wearing the same outfits they wore 20 years ago, it's definitely time for a wardrobe update.
The first thing any fashion expert will tell you is that dressing younger does not make you look younger. People-watch at your local mall and you'll notice that most women over 50 are not "Forever 21." But that doesn't mean they can't look good and have fun with their wardrobe. Fifty should not mean frumpy; it's about comfort and elegance.
There's nothing a good haircut and a great outfit can't do to make you look and feel fantastic" from the How Stuff Works Webpage

  • Do have a professional bra fitting.
  • Don't shop by size; shop by fit.
  • Do emphasize your waistline to show off your curves.
  • Do belt a sheath dress to distract the eye from the belly.
  • Do check yourself out in a three-way mirror.
  • Don't buy a piece of basic clothing unless you can wear it three ways.
  • Do edit your closet every few years to get rid of pieces that are out of date or no longer fit.
  • Don't wear baggy or tight clothes, choose waisted jackets, scoop necklines and fitted tops.
  • Do stick to classic pieces and accessorize with seasonal trends.
  • Do make your legs look longer by wearing a nude shoe.
  • Don't wear a floral print on a body part that you want to downplay.
  • Don't wear panty hose with open toe shoes.
  • Don't go out of the house wearing something that feels too tight.
  • Do consider a wrap dress, which will work with your curves as they increase or decrease.
  • Do remember size and age are just numbers.
A woman who dresses in well-made, well-fitting clothes can feel confident and that confidence will make her look better than anyone else in the room. ( all the above copied from HowStuffWorks    Lifestyle site )

 Why not a little red beret,  or a jewel tone scarf

Dianna Ross looks fabulous leaving Taco her -  she does manage to break the rules and still look absolutely herself

Quoting from the article: "Now elderly ladies and older women don't have to look frumpy and old. Just stay healthy and stylish and you will age gracefully."

Her NOT Him.
Christine Lagarde beauty and brains

our good bye to a great woman of fashion/style

Eileen Ford died at 92 and Carmen Del Orefice 

a few more words on the subject

Diana Athill, 95
In her own words to this paper three years ago: “However old one is, one still feels inside like the person one used to be. It’s a foolish mistake to try too hard to look like that person, but it would be a bit sad to look very much like something else.”

Emmanuelle Riva, 86
The oldest-ever best actress nominee was also one of the best-dressed on the red carpet at this year’s Oscars. She swapped her mousy onscreen persona from Amour for a sassy shorter hairstyle, a bright red lip and a Lanvin dress and cape combination. At the Oscars, wearing a Lanvin cape? Way to do octogenarianism, madame

Aung San Suu Kyi, 67
Admired, of course, for many things before her dress sense. And yet her way with subtle combinations of print and colour is Very Prada, if I may say so (see: the rose pink, black and silver outfit she wore when meeting Prince Charles during her visit to the UK last summer). Her love of traditional Burmese tailoring details and colours has been credited with helping to brake a trend towards western dress among young women in her country

Madeleine Albright, 75
A dark suit. A round necklace and a brooch at the left shoulder, to brighten. Hair swept back, giving the smooth outline of a head carved in marble. Proof that a signature look does not need to be complicated
