A: Dress like a lady, in timeless designs that don’t date. Have a good tailor. Know what colors work for you. Quality over quantity. Own some real jewelry, and tons of costume.Classic, three inch pumps are the sexiest shoes one can wear! Pencil skirts, pumps, and cardigans are my staples.I have always loves the Nancy Mitford quip,“Good clothes are a matter of health.”As a child, I loved old movies because of how the women dressed.They had coiffures, and handbags, and chiffon dresses! The way Doris Day looked in her movies was smashing.The character of Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale is appealing to me. I was so inspired by that black fedora, and trench! Wow! I relish the rituals of femininity, and being a woman in full.Trends don’t appeal to me. I was watching the movie the Queen the other day, with Helen Mirren, and realized how much I love a stacked heel, and a great brooch! Sophia Loren is one of the best dressed women on the planet!
