bill blass– a man of impeccable style, impeccably chic- american chic!
so now you all know i always wanted to be cary grant, actually i wanted to look like cary grant. i wanted to live like bill blass. those houses-chic! those fabulous society ladies- chic! the talent, the taste, the style- american chic!
going down memory lane again- when i was young i knew the day the mail man would deliver my mother’s monthly vogue, harper’s bazaar and town and country magazines. i studied them and dreamed about the lives of oscar de la renta, calvin klein, halston and bill blass. how they lived, their talent, their lifestyles. bill blass stood out- i was obsessed, i still am!
i have studied bill blass ever since- his work, his life, his homes! i feel it’s some how shaped how i look at things, my appreciation for beauty and the importance of quality, detail, understated refinement.
i was recently in Connecticut and the highlight of the trip was the accidental discovery of bill blass’s Connecticut home. i know it’s silly, but it was really a moment! i had an experience with my style icon!
the man knew how to live- impeccable taste, impeccable style, impeccably chic- american chic!
