{Timeless Style} Ellen Hart

Isn’t it funny how life can come full circle?

In 1969, Ellen Hart was attending high school in Houston, Texas. Fashion was her passion; as a 17-year-old she worked as a salesgirl at the now-defunct department store, Joske’s. “My older brother had a clothing line, Très Petite, which was sold there. He got me the job.”  Here, Ellen, wears a dress from her brother’s company. “I was hippie-conservative,” she says now. “Fashionable for the time, but buttoned-up. I still wore a bra. I didn’t lose that until 1970, when absolutely everyone was doing it.”

This year, Ellen, now 58, moved back to her hometown, Houston, where she runs her company, Career Bags, an online store with stylish luggage and career cases.

“We are the essence of who we once were, no matter what masks we put on in life. Things haven’t changed a bit. Well, actually, do you see the blue eyeshadow? What was I thinking?”Ellen Hart

    Ellen: Blue eyeshadow is everywhere now. I wore it then too. I thought I was just so cool, as I’m sure you did. And you looked era-perfect, and adorable!

    I could not tell that the shadow was blue, but it does not take away from your beauty.
