March is Lena Horne Month!

At two years of age, Miss Horne became the youngest member of the NAACP, signed up by her grandmother Cora Calhoun Horne. The Horne family was firmly rooted in an influential circle of Brooklyn intellectuals, businesspeople and activists, including W.E.B. Dubois, Walter White and Paul Robeson. Horne carried the torch as a standard-bearer in an age of change and turbulence for black Americans. She also happened to be a knock out with tremendous taste.

That’s all she wrote ladies. Thanks for another fantastic End of Season Sale. They get better and better w/ each passing year. So much so, we might have to make T-shirts Family Reunion style next time.

It’s time to say farewell to Patty. Her day job has eclipsed her for fun on Sun job so it’s time to move on. We adored having her and she will forever remain a Couture du Jour family member even if she’s sick of you guys. Okay, that last bit was a joke. She misses us already. Thanks Patty and best of luck! xoxo

Heaven just got a wee bit sunnier. So kick your shoes off, she hated them, raise a glass of orange juice & toast the stranger to your right and left exactly as she would, finding the society set a total bore. Regardless of what anyone thinks of Preppies, she was anything but conventional. Who else on earth could stroll into Chanel on Worth Ave barefoot, perhaps even a little sandy? Only Lilly.
