Just a little bit

Remember Etienne Aigner?  I thought that they had their heyday in the late 70's, early eighties and was surprised to find, that they had recently opened a new flagship store in Soho.  I seem to remember that they made nice boots, and leather goods.  This belt is such a nice classic piece. In the new Aigner marketing spiel, they commented that their new target client was a young Isabella Rossellini.  Oh that I wish there were more young Isabella Rossellinis out there, more Grace Kelly's, more Audrey and Katherine Hepburns….more women of style, talent and substance.  I don't want my daughters to think that they need to 'keep up with the Kardashian's.'  My mom had a dear friend named Marion Bierwirth, she is an elegant, kind, and smart woman, full of grace.  My mom and I used to have a running comment whenever we were in a moral quandry - We used to say;  "What would Marion do?" And we meant it!  I hope that my daughters will find a good moral compass within themselves, and I hope that all the strong women in their lives help them find it.  So Here's to the Marion's, Sarah's, Hanne's, Frankie's, Michelle's, Margot's, Lucy's, Nora's, and Leah's, of the world.  Let's keep our kids classy!!  xoxo
