She comes by her love of the two worlds naturally. Finamore is part of a family of Boston area chefs renowned for their culinary artistry. was interested in food from my family history and started looking at it almost from a decorative arts perspective, Finamore says. Her great grandfather, grandfather, and uncles were all chefs whose creations won many awards in culinary salon competitions held by the Epicurean Club of Boston over much of the 20th century. At the salons, chefs prepared elegant buffets demonstrating classical French techniques and painstakingly created sculptural pieces, from sugar, beeswax, and tallow. The displays took months to prepare and were judged on their visual presentation. are such interesting parallels in the way food is presented in the 1950s and the clothing of that era, Finamore says. example, the formality of the presentations in the culinary salons and the formality of women clothing of the 1950s the full skirted dresses, the gloves, hats, and proper handbags were popular at a time when the Parisian haute couture set the fashion trends.

Published in 1967, the book reflects the fascination with all things Italian. of all the Italian movies, says Finamore. is fascinating to consider the connections between a designer such as Christian Dior, his spare elegance, and haute couture craftsmanship, Finamore says, how that is reflected in the kind of food he prepared. She also points to to Streamline Your Figure (1937) by of Hollywood, which may have been a pen name for starlet Sylvia Sidney, according to Finamore. tells you so much about what the ideal was back then, Finamore says.

So even if you are not able to fill your closet with originals by Ferragamo and Chanel, you may at least be able to savor the beauty of a Dior classic: pommes dauphine.

they may be comfortable but ladies The latest is the Worishofer. A cross between an orthopedic wedge and something out of granny s wardrobe, it was first designed 70 years ago, in a small Bavarian Moncler Down Men Jacket Berriat No Hat Zip Deep Green town called Bad Worishofen. And there it ought to have stayed. In fact, calling it the Bad might have been closer to the mark. And yet it s gracing the catwalks, worn by the likes of uber cool actresses Maggie Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst. And you know, there s something okay about it being seen on someone who looks good in a sack, but for the rest of us ordinary mortals . puh leeze. Tragically, the Worishofer seems set to join the ranks of the Ugg (or Ugh); Birkenstocks, which still haven t gone away, and probably won t until outdoor music festivals are banned, and that ultimate ugly shoe the Croc. Truly, there should be a piece of legislation against them unless you re a chef or a five year old, in which case they re practical for wearing into puddles and pools. Pink plastic does not look good on anyone else. For women they re a complete no no. In fact, so are all of the above. What is in the psyche of a woman who will spend a fortune getting her hair done, a week s wage on a new outfit and then spoil it with a pair of Dr Scholls? Couldn t you find a nice pair of heels? Even of the kitten variety? Or a sandal with straps thinner than a belt? The blame lies, as for most things, with Victoria Beckham. Papped coming through an airport earlier this year in flat ballet pumps was actually the beginning of the end for the glamourous foot. There should have been an immediate ban against picture editors printing the images. Now, having said that, it s one thing when a glamorous stick insect WAG dons an ugly shoe. It s not about comfort at all it s a cultural statement "I am so gorgeous that I can get away with it". And they sort of can. If you re young, tall and skinny enough to wear a pair of Uggs or crocs with a Givenchy minidress and an oversized Chanel bag, cool. If you re an ordinary size 14 wearing a below the knee wrap dress you ll just look like a 60 year old cleaning lady from the back streets of a Greek island. And before you start banging on about the value of comfort and how sensible Moncler Gilet Women shoes are important for the feet, here s the thing: if that s what it s all about, why not just spend every day in a shell suit and no makeup? Super comfy and better for the skin. You don t, huh? Well then don t do the ugly shoe song either. If there were more nuns we d have better shoe Moncler Women Down Hooded Fine Grid Green Grid Jackets sense. In my day anything other than flat black shoes were banned in school. As in, Taken off you until end of term and a beady eye kept on you until then. Around 1981 a strange shoe called the Chinese Slipper became cool. It was flat, black and made of a velvety fabric. They were everywhere and cheap enough to own several pairs. We wore them to school where they were, naturally, instantly banned. The flat black rule was of course, a ruse. It was anything in fashion that was doomed. The nuns won every time, thus creating a generation of women who determined, never again, to wear flat sensible footwear. Have we lost the message girls? Have we forgotten so quickly? It s not too late. Shun your friends who own Uggs. Ignore everyone in cork wedges. Spit in the eye of the Birkenstock flashers. And as for the Worishofer? Well, put them on a plane back to Bavaria without delay.
