START WITH STYLE!
"Style is knowing who you are and what you want to say, and not giving a damn!" Gore Vidal
|"What would Gore say?"|
Boy, is that a
terrific attitude, or what? Well, if you are one of those fortunate
people who have an innate sense of style and can carry off any
combination of fashion looks, timelessness, casual or elegant and are
constantly being complimented on your "look", then step up to the bar
with Mr. Vidal.
But, if you are
like most folks, sometimes a different view point or opinion, type
of place you shop or even reading a period type of book can help you
make the metamorphosis from fashion caterpillar to fabulous butterfly!
At Classic Collections we work with our customers
to put together the "Best of the Best" and create a fabulous look just
for you. Are you looking for a comfortable St. John suit that you can
wear to work? Sounds great...but let's kick it up a bit with a daring,
edgy, red Italian ostrich handbag! Need a gown and want to stick with
always right black? Sure, but let's add sequined booties and a glamorous
sequined fur cape! Want a casual, Chanel blazer that you can literally
wear with everything for the
rest for your life?
Why not...but let's add a terrific, current patent leather Valentino
handbag and some funky non-Chanel jewelry to stir things up a bit!
Have something at
home that you just don't know what to wear with it? Bring it in-let us
see if we can find a new way to approach the piece....and, if all else
fails, you can consign it
with us and buy something else!
|Chanel and Valentino|
We are so lucky to
have such an abundant and continuous flow of elegant and unusual
designer merchandise! What you don't find one day you will be
overwhelmed with on another! So come on in and start 2012 with STYLE!!

large in a variety of fabrics, styles and colors. Naturally, we are

specified "cocktail" attire. Thus lives on the Little Black Dress (LBD)
and it's best friend, the evening suit. Put on some pearls or a brooch,
grab a light-weight fur wrap, and off you go! So simple, so easy, so

wide assortment of evening bags and clutches that run the gamut from
sophisticated and timeless to edgy and very different!
