I blame two people for my aspirational lifestyle desires:
1) Mrs. Miniver (yes, THE Mrs. Miniver of the movie - who deserves her own post), whose house is THE house I have coveted my entire life.
2) Ralph Lauren
Today, we will focus on Ralph. We don't need to get in a lot of biographical information here - Mr. Lauren is known and beloved by many the world over. He is my silver fox, who just keeps getting better looking as he ages! Oh i know - he missed the boat with the Olympics, but everyone has a misstep now and then...
Even better, this is the same Ralph Lauren who is still married to the gorgeous Ricky, mother to his three gorgeous children.
What Ralph sells is LIFESTYLE. And I want that lifestyle!!!
Look at his new fall arrivals:
Oh if I had a neck of any distinction:
Or a place to wear this delicious skirt:
Or perhaps Ralph and I will just go for a horseback ride this afternoon (wait! I forgot that I don't ride...)
This little Pima cotton shirt dress is only $198 and has made it on to my fall drool list:
But it is the home collection where Ralph really shines for me...
I see this and I want to rush back up above and get on that little grey sweater and skirt, despite the short neck calamity! I will need it for cocktail hour!
Of course, we may be up at the chalet and I will need ivory wool instead..
But never mind, Ralph probably has a few things sitting in the closet at the ranch that I can slip into..
Of course, we might be at the beach house...Either way, surely he has a few size 6s hanging in the closet...
I have a few Ralph Lauren articles of clothing and they are generally well constructed. I have used his paint and found the colours lovely.
Ralph has tapped into the psyche of the individual who wants to live a more glamorous, beautiful life. And has ruined me forever!!! But in the best sort of way...
Do you like Ralph Lauren? Do you have an equivalent to Ralph that you admire and would love to emulate?
Have a wonderful day mes amis! By now i am in Paris, wondering placidly and happily...
