Yves St. Laurent

Vintage is valuable! Old is in!
Period pieces have come back again.
Treasure that bodice, and care for that frock.
Wear them, and act like you've turned back the clock.
How can antique items look good as new?
Preserve them, and they will stay stylish for you.
- Linda Ann Nickerson
