The Quaintrelle Movement
As society advances we throw out the bad, and a lot of the time we throw out the good as well. Yesterdays fashions and fancies slip from the mode, to the demode, and finally are forgotten.
As sad as that sounds the quaintrelle movement is bringing it all back! More than just re-enactment, we're peppering our lives wit the delicious demode that makes life grand!
Quaintrelle style can be defined the same way the word "quaint" can be defined, it is unusual or fanciful, with an old fashioned sense of elegance.
When you think of the word dandy or quaintrelle you think about a person so elaborate they stood out from the crowd like a sore (gloved) thumb, and we love them for it!
The look might sometimes be quite extreme, but it's not about costume. It's not about stepping out of our world and into a make believe character, it's about our lives and who we are. Full skirts and intricate details, we're dressing in finery not simply in clothes.
We take the time to enjoy everything like it's something special. Drink from a fine china teacup with breakfast instead of a mug.
