In Timely Fashion is Back & Better Than Ever!

When I began my English studies two years ago, many things had to take a back burner. One such project left to simmer was In Timely Fashion, "a site designed for those who find delight in 'past-dressing'–not for special occasions only, but on a daily basis." I launched the site back in 2002 but was unable to do much with it afterward. Hence, it comes as a great pleasure to see that a talented young woman has taken up the editorial duties of ITF. Amanda Kastner has done an outstanding job of updating the site's organization, layout, and graphics. I think you'll be delighted with the results of her labors and inspired in your own endeavors to create clothing that's old-fashioned-ly elegant. Enjoy!
