p.s. – Courreges Knit Sailor Dress – $750 (1960’s blue and white sleeveless shift dress)(above)
Hmmm…a little 1950’s and 60’s vintage flair in fashion and lighting. Loving these dresses and loving these lamps. Shedding a little light on fashion and style from the past that might influence a little home decorating in the present.
Could imagine wearing the striped knit dress this summer in the Hamptons when visiting friend AM or Nantucket with FF (I of course am presuming that I will be invited…hint hint…). The maxi dress is perfect for a spring cocktail party with some fab gold bangles and some strappy metallic shoes and simple diamond earrings. Finally, the little suit is so coquette…I could wear that to a serious business meeting…the dress underneath is sleeveless…I like the look because it is versatile…either lady who lunches at the country club style or feminine business. Love all.
The lamps are pretty cool too. Take a look…
