What is the single most influential item of the 1950's fashasion? The pencil skirt baby! This is the most simple, sexy, figure flattering item of clothing in a women's wardrobe. The essence of a women is her confidence and ability to get the attention of a room, well the pencil skirt does this for any women and size does not matter! High waisted or low, with a ruffle or a long zipper, there is not a women I know young or mature that does not know the importance of having this garment on deck at all times. I have so many in different fabrics and colors and yes I pull one out when I need that extra oompf in my step for the day. Simply fantastic!

Another item I consider important is the two piece bikini! Though our version shows SO much more skin and every women is not able to pull it off, this is a radical and amazing garment. As women we love to flaunt our sexuality some more than others and the bikini gives us the option of showing a lot with french cut types or a little less with high waisted or boyshort verisons. The bikini is a very important, women's lib!
