This exquisite long-sleeved blouse from Cambridgeshire in England wouldn't look out of place on a Renaissance princess, though it was made to tempt the most privileged Flower Children of the hippie 1960s.

This gossamer beauty pairs beautifully with anything from jeans to an evening skirt and can be worn off the shoulders or not. The bodice is overlaid in front with gorgeously decorated panels of embroidered white eyelet and beading mesh...

This stunning twill silk scarf is titled "Brise de Charme." The noted artist and designer, Julia Abadie, did the graphics work for this, which was made in 1985. To my knowledge, it has never been re-issued.

With a background of a beautiful blue, it depicts, in marvelous detail and a rainbow of colors, a panoply of handpainted 18th and 19th century fans...

The Hachi name, as you may remember, is closely associated with the late Princess Diana. A beaded evening gown created for her by the Japanese designer took top price (more than $70,000) at the personal apparel auction she was organizing at the time of her death. She wore that dress often between 1983 and 1989. This said, any beaded dress by Hachi is of more than idle interest -- and ours happens to have the very same beaded sunburst pattern that features on Diana's gown at shoulder and hip...

Of 91% cotton and 9% lycra, it holds every curve and has a powerful slimming effect from the draped crossover front and ruched sides. It finishes just above the knees and you can roll the top down if you want more exposure...

These pretty Chorus Line character shoes by Leo's were purchased for a play in 1985 and worn for only a few weeks of rehearsal and performance. How do I know so much about them? They've been languishing in my own closet for more than 20 years!

Leo's dance shoes are of excellent quality, so lots of life is left in these beauties. The screw-on Capezio "Tele Tone" taps are in great shape, too...
