Fashion is not solely the domain of the young….sometimes the best wardrobe advice comes from someone who has lived through years of changing style trends and knows quality when she sees/feels it. And Flo Baron (below) is just such a lady!With a stunning private “salon” high up in the clouds overlooking Yorkville (see her northward view, below) Flo welcomed friends and long-time clients yesterday, sharing some of the stunning and very affordable fashions from U.S. and European designers, and Saucy Minx was there to experience the luxury of having Flo customize outfits for any occasion. The ladies browsed the racks and tried them on for us all to see. How beautiful they all looked, especially after Flo added jewellery, belts, scarves….wow! Here’s Tracy (below) modelling a beautiful blue ensemble with interchangeable pieces. Strike a pose, Tracy! …and she even channels her “inner genie” below…LOL
Whether it be cotton, linen, silk or a blend, each unique piece was shown to a very appreciative gathering of private shoppers…. …and the treasures in her “Aladdin’s cave” of racks are enough to give any fashion-forward diva palpitations! How about this colourful pendant? Easy to wear dressed up or casual with jeans and a t-shirt.And this simple grey sheath dress (below) accessorized with off-white beads? So beautiful and easy to wear in the summer heat.Setting the stage for her frequent special sales events, when you enter Flo’s salon you are immediately immersed in her classic sense of style in her stunning lobby. Good taste and elegance comes easily to Flo – she’s had a lifetime surrounded by beauty both in architectural & interior design, and especially in fashion. In the 50’s, she landed a job in the dress shop at the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel. She helped style Hollywood’s most glamorous stars of the day including dancer and movie star Cyd Charisse, Dorothy Lamour, Elizabeth Taylor and even Zsa Zsa Gabor who would frequently drop in and demand Flo bring her everything on the racks in her size! “Polly Bergen walked in one day wearing a full length mink coat. She put her arm around me, winked and whispered “I did it all by myself!” What a fabulous lady she was.”Thankfully, Flo brings her fashion sense and panache to Toronto as we ladies over 20-something need fabulous clothes that enhance our bodies and our personalities…and that are affordable. Plus, who doesn’t love a little pampering with Flo’s personalized styling?
