if it's the inside of the collar at ralph lauren you are talking about, i would call that mouton retournée or peau lainee...
which in english would be "double faced lambskin??" that is the only translation i could find! hope it is usefull!

What exactly does Sample Sale mean? I know it's a sale with huge price markdowns, but why in particular is it called a sample sale?

Probably because they're selling samples Which I believe would be items worn on the runway/shown to buyers/shown at trunk shows.

I think they're just like pumps? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Like this: http://www.witchery.com.au/www/136/f...11075bs_lg.jpg [the image was far too big to insert] or this: http://www.witchery.com.au/www/136/files/311021sm.jpg

But they also come in a lower heeled version.

[links er, from witchery.com.au]

^ That's interesting--I had always assumed it meant the royal court, but as I say, I know less than nothing about this I always see it in British novels, articles, etc.

Dresses - styles?
I have spent hours searching for an archive of dresses which lists the name of each style of dress alongside an image. I am looking for all dresses over all style periods but have had no luck.

Does anyone know a website that may help me out - even if it is era specific.


Hope someone can help

What are HQs? I have seen this in a question: "Are there any HQs, yet?"
