Some things in life don’t require breakfast-cereal print shift dresses. For everything else, there’s couture.
These are the times to raise the stakes.
But in our defense, there are instances in which one simply can’t help but look beyond her own closet in favor of a little higher-class fare—when Anna Wintour declares the dress code “white tie”, for instance. Or when you find yourself bypassing a sea of who-dat-who-dat stares as you make your way to your front row seat at Fashion Week. These are the times to raise the stakes.
By raise, we mean your credit card limit. And by stakes, we mean couture.
