I thought I'd share some of these glamourous dresses. This gives an idea of the vision I have in trying to find my future dress. I see a lot of vintage suits on the market but I do not see very many wool wrap dresses with angular features and draping effects. You see a lot of "wiggle" dresses but not ones that drape and twist. There is a mastery and art to this type of look. I'm hoping I can find this gem under the radar. Now, if I could only transport myself back to 1952/1953 for a day to pick up one of these gems with today's money value at a 1950s price point, I'd be quite set.
I'm also working on a post about my BEST acquisition of the year (and no, it isn't a Lilli Ann). So stay tuned, it's taking me longer than I anticipated to write up because I keep drifting off and finding interesting things to explore.
I know these are suits, but check out the wrap around details, 1951
Some patterns of Paris Original's that I've quite liked:
An auction for a Dior that went for $5,500 and estimate was $600 haha. I'm thinking a museum or a celebrity bought this one but check out the lovely wrap effect in the center. Posted about here.
