“Elegance is elimination.”–Balenciaga
This 85-year-old photograph of New Zealand writer Ngaio Marsh proves that elegance, coziness, and individuality can be as stylish as anything out of the pages of a 21st-century fashion magazine.
Embellishments are minimal: an eccentric shoulder, a few buttons, an indifferently tilted hat, a bit of pattern and texture here or there.
Clean lines. Confidence.
She is, more than anything, mysterious.
Truly gorgeous photo. There’s a book you might like, IN PRASE OF DIFFICULT WOMEN, by Karen Karbo. I’m listening to it and it’s fun.
I just looked it up. It sounds great! Thanks for the rec.
Love this! Her poise says everything. I also wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award. If you don’t have time for it right now or a responding post just doesn’t match your style, no worries–it’s still good to shout out what you do!

Thanks so much for the nomination. I’ll be happy to accept if I can find the time. It might take me a week or two, but I will try my best. Thanks again.
