This Batik-dyed high neck duster jacket is a truly unique and fun to wear gem from the 80's. We see this paired with skinny jeans and high heels in a glammed up approach to cocktails with the girls. This look screams avant garde artist. Note the multi-paneled dolman sleeve so evident of the era and the many coveted buttons, there even an extra sewn in to the side.

We love these wonderful navy with gold striped "genie" pants/ knickers. A favorite 1980's example of the brand Poi by Krizia.

Snaps at waist with a brass snap, metal zipper and brass snaps at legs. Exceptionally balloon-like legs taper from a flattering yoke waist.

It's all about the details and this amazing perfectly worn-in whip-stitched leather jacket has them in spades. Oh the stories she could tell, but it's more about the stories she has yet to make. Where will you take her? Open roads of Montana? Clubbing in New York City? Will it be a cross Europe train trek? We certainly don't need to tell you what to pair her with because she IS the outfit.

Probably one of the most romantic Gatsby-era negligees we have yet to come across. Pair with a light weight slip and wear as a summer evening cocktail dress.

Very pretty satin pastel floral dressing gown. Pair this with a pair of great Levi's for a look that says tough, can-do femininity.
