Amazing how long well-made clothes can last. I recently wore this black dress in Toronto for a private event. However, I first acquired it in London about 13 years ago when I was pregnant. I bought it for a weekly cabaret gig at trendy nightclub in Central London. I wanted to hide my pregnancy since the club wasn’t too hot about a pregnant- looking singer… They clearly didn’t know the real value of Cool…. The dress is by Formes Made in France. It has served me well over the years pregnant and non. It’s the high double slit and the fit of the dress which makes it timeless. The Boa was a gift from a friend for my stagette over 18 years ago.
It was my extreme honour to be accompanied by world class pianist Robi Botos http://robibotos.com/wordpress/ on the keys.
The Style-Diet Shot celebrates individuals with unique style, wearing at least one article of clothing acquired via the Stephens’ Sisters Shopping Diet. It must be local, sustainable, second-hand/re-purposed, inherited or ethically produced. If you can’t find clothing fitting that criteria then it must be from a country with stellar human rights records.
