THE LADY IS A TRAMP

Christmas is almost here!

These days I am really in the mood for cuddling and staying close to the one I love and I guess that was pretty obvious in my last couple of posts. I can’t help it, I’m a sucker for romance and hugs, but I do my best to stay in line and not to get in a corny area.

The thing is that this time of year I enjoy best listening to the classics like Sinatra, Cosby, Martin, Fitzgerald and Bennett, not only for their Christmas Carrols but for their gigantic hits that take you back to the time when movies and fashion were at their beginnings but what a great beginning there was…

One of my all time favorites is a songs called “The Lady is a Tramp” and that inspired me so much that I decided I should create a little outfit to impersonate its spirit and message of the song in its mission to mock the social patterns and prejudices of the period.

The story of this dress, as Mr. Blue Eyes tells it, would go like this:

“She gets too hungry for dinner at eight
She likes the theatre and never comes late
She never bothers with people she hates
That’s why the lady is a tramp

Doesn’t like crap games with barons or earls
Won’t go to Harlem in ermine and pearls
Won’t dish the dirt with the rest of the girls
That’s why the lady is a tramp

She likes the free fresh wind in her hair,
Life without care
She’s broke and it’s ok
Hates California, it’s cold and it’s damp
That’s why the lady is a tramp

She gets too hungry to wait for dinner at eight
She loves the theatre, but never comes late
She’d never bother with people she’d hate
That’s why the lady is a tramp

She’ll have no crap games with sharpies and frogs
And she won’t go to Harlem in Lincolns or Fords
And she won’t dish the dirt with the rest of the broads
That’s why the lady is a tramp

She loves the free fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
She’s broke but it’s ok
Hates California, it’s so cold and so damp
That’s why the lady. That’s why the lady
That’s why the lady is a tramp.”

The mix between good music and fashion will never go out of style and I believe good fashion design should set in motion feelings and excitement just as much as hi quality music does and bringing them together should make it the supreme sensorial experience. I hope I managed to create at least a bit of that and on that note I leave you to enjoy the photos in the distinguished company of Mr. Frank Sinatra.
