Vaycay Day 4: Another Definition

Another fashion favorite is the word "timeless," so over-used as to become meaningless.

Looking at this John Rawlings photograph from the 40's, you remember that there are certain looks and moments captured that do deserve that adjective. The coat, the bag, the lipstick, the expression - you could almost mistake this for a shot from Garance or Scott (no doubt Rawlings often inspires their work, and that of so many others, subconsciously or not). This image comes to mind.

More here ... and can you honestly tell me you would not DIE to wear these dresses or that oversized knit hat?
