Turn Of Phrase

Have you ever been “seized by an uncontrollable desire?” In the glory days of MAD magazine, that would have meant being carried off by an amorous cartoon dragon in the regular feature Horrifying Clichés.* 

And, like an enthusiastic dragon, how can you resist the temptation of Jane’s Vanity’s beautiful new lineup for spring? Or the fun of slaying clichés?

Picture yourself stifling an urge. You would look lovely doing so in a silk print Klements Zennor Dress, choice of Witchflower or Reindeer. Almost 16 yards of fabric are employed to create its circle skirt and extra-long sleeves. 

What should you wear to throw caution to the wind? We vote for Gilda & Pearl’s Jardin de la Lune Bodysuit. Its stretchy black tulle and rare French embroidery assure that nothing will constrict your pitch. 

And for wrestling with your conscience? Let it be Emma Harris’s new Celeste Camisole and Tap Pant Set in champagne silk with sparkling appliqué.

Nothing easier than dropping a hint (poor little thing). Be gentle in Karolina Laskowska’s Nereid Lingerie Set in navy blue Chantilly lace line with beige tulle.

No problem drumming up a little spirit for fabulous new spring lingerie and loungewear from Jane’s Vanity! 

*Illustrator Paul Coker, who died in 2022worked at MAD magazine for over 50 years (with writer Phil Hahn and others) to bring us, among other things, his joyfully subversive Horrifying Clichés.
