A noble woman’s code of honor:
1. Always send handwritten thank-yous, antiquated as they may seem.
2. Never slay the heart of your lady-in-waiting’s knight in shining Armani.
3. Brandish Cloak & Dagger to be prepared for all occasions.
The collection of sophisticated, ultra-feminine armor puts a modern twist on centuries-old staples in cool shades of coral, oyster, and caviar.
Chic belted dresses come in silk crêpe de chine; oversize pockets and smocked waistbands distinguish A-line frocks. The coveted keyhole halter and strapless tie-front dress are fit for rendezvous with royalty. And damsels stay out of distress with the drawstring satchel made from aged lambskin in urchin or gray.
4. Keep it stocked with mints for pals with dragon breath.
Your bravery shall be rewarded.
