I love seeing women wearing long skirts, I don’t know why but I really do. The vintage 80s Ungaro floral cotton top with the poof sleeves and high collar is just off the chart hot. The long velvet pencil skirt by Caroline Charles is off the chart hot. So when you put the Ungaro hot top with the Charles hot skirt you get a lot of hot-ness. Over the years you have heard me talk nonstop about Ungaro well today I’m going to to talk nonstop about Caroline Charles…. She began her career in the fashion world after she did a couture apprenticeship and was a photographer’s assistant. In the 1960′s Caroline Charles worked for Mary QUANT darling, Mary QUANT who invented the miniskirt thank you!!! Her clothes were loved by Lulu Guinness, Marianne Faithfull, Cilla Black. She made special suits for Mick Jagger and Ringo Starr. Diana Princess of Wales became a regular client and the dress Emma Thompson wore when she won her Oscar for Howard’s End was designed by Caroline Charles. This black velvet Caroline Charles 80′s skirt came right out of Neiman Marcus and the second I saw this I immediately thought of Victoria Beckham. She would ROCK this skirt like there was no tomorrow and who knows there might not be no tomorrow!!! I say LIVE…… I’m Daniel Troppy your luxury vintage curator!
