The Rustle of Taffeta

 

"There is no sound more feminine than a woman in a taffeta dress".

The charming forever youthful and handsome couture designer knows what a woman needs to look GLAMOUROUS and FEEL outstanding. 
No one has dressed women with such a high regard to our feminine charms than Oscar de la Renta. 

Here is a selection of some of my favourite taffeta fashions. 

Let the rustling begin........

  2. This is lovely. I haven't owned a taffeta dress since I was about 5. I'll need to create the occasion so I can wear one. The black one with the back bow is my favorite and the last red one is a stunner. Your friend??
    Have a beautiful week.
