Fantasy Fashion

Old Words: paillette: 1387 in French, a cereal grain; about 1843 in English, with regard to fashion.

French and fabulous, the paillette is in its rudest form a metallic spangle. In its most glorious? It adorns a gown like this one from Christian Dior…that Eliot borrowed from the Metropolitan Museum for Abby in R IS FOR REBEL:

I spend a lot of time some time an appropriate amount of time on Pinterest gazing at inspiration photos for my novels. Have you seen my board for Abby and Eliot?

Would you add any pins to it if you could? I’d love to see them; leave a links in the comments.
