"The Object is to Look as Chic as You Can, but Your Average Person in the Street Would Never Wear This."

Writer, Alice Carey, learned about style from the ladies who lived off Park Avenue, in New York, during the 50s and 60s. Her family immigrated from Ireland, and her mother was a maid for a chic set of women, who purchased hats from Hattie Carnegie and shopped at Bergdorf's. As a young girl, Alice soaked all of this in. Her style philosophy is, "The Object is to look as chic as you can, but your average person in the street would never wear this." For more of Alice's story check out the videos below:
