Betsy's Boutique

Winsted, Connecticut


It seems safe to assume than no one emerges from Betsy's looking like the model in the poster. But I wonder if anyone who walks in even wants to look remotely like that.

Tongue-in-cheek mode on.
Carl, knowing that this is true does not mean you should articulate it. You are just dissipating the last remnants of oh so many dreams...

Probably not, but there are those who will dream they are.

leaving the question of 'beauty' aside, considering the poster is in a pale b&w, the tree line and other reflections look to go right past it (emerge from behind it?), it is just downright ghostly....

I guess all of the fashion and beauty industries are about fantasy and illusion. The poster really is, in fact, somewhat ghostly: it's not on paper but a loose-weave screening material that lets light through but looks substantial from a distance.
