This suit also has just the California label which is also quite rare dating it to the late 40s. I'd love to see this beauty in person. Those buttons are just drop the jaw impressive. Isn't it also interesting about the cut out on the front? This suit has "ahead of it's time" "timeless" written all over it.
If you are new to my blog, Lilli Ann and I are best friends. <smile> Please follow me on Pinterest (check sidebar) for updates to my Lilli Ann ads and outfits boards. I find it fascinating to link actual ads to the current suits so you can also see this here and a brief biography on the designer. There is also a lot of great information in California Couture. I highly recommend this book for a peek into vintage California designers.
