Haute Couture & a Girl from Idaho

Posted on: February 21, 2012


This is the town I live in. This is the town I grew up in. This is the town where I married, had kids, raised them kids up, kids moved away, I worked and this is the town I will die in. Ok, that’s getting a little morbid. My point is, I’ve spent a good part of my &$$/ plus years in this town. I’ve never really travelled. I’ve been to the Bahamas on my honeymoon and I’ve been to Mexico via the border town by Yuma, Arizona. That’s pretty much it. How does a girl like me come to love (and I mean love) everything haute couture?

This dress is from Valentino. When the model walks the material moves with her. I can’t explain it, but it is pure beauty. My favorite movie is

Valentino, The Last Emperor

, that’s where this picture is from. Did you know Valentino does not own a sewing machine? Everything from his haute couture line is made by hand. I would not know where to begin to make a dress that beautiful. By hand.


The red dress is Valentino, his signature red. The other dress is from Dior. They make my heart happy. Like I said I don’t know where it comes from, this love of mine, but it does make me happy. If the truth was told, I would never, in a million years spend what those dresses cost to buy one. Even if I won the lottery, I just would not be able to, but I do like to look at them. What makes you happy? Aside from your kids and pets……
Here is one more of my favorite pictures, it makes me happy.

I love the Valentino movie too. I learned so much. I am not a fashionista, but I sure love beautifully made clothes.


I’m so glad you like them as do I. To me there is a beauty in a well made dress. And then to think it was done by hand? Thanks for stopping by and commenting, I really appreciate the support.


I love haute coutre too – altoughy obviously it’s not for me. But those dresses are just amazing, all of them! They are sooo dreamy…
Btw it is nice that you lived in one place all your life, it must be an amazing feeling!
I love living in London and I don’t want to give it up, but I do miss my home town Bucharest a lot too…

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
