I came across this blouse a couple months ago and it sold in a heartbeat. So, another one crossed my path recently and I bought it and I thought I'd share images of it with you. Besides being a novelty print, it was also styled by Edith Head. A very beautiful blouse indeed. I love how this blouse is styled in the vintage ad with the bow on the side. I also have not seen the film. Have any of you?
According to the ad, you could own this very lovely blouse for $3.00 and two Dial Soap wrappers. This ad is from 1956. So, in today's dollars this blouse would cost you around $26. Not too bad for an Edith Head blouse! Or, if you didn't have the soap wrappers it would cost you $10 or $86. I've just sold this blouse as it isn't quite me but will be a winner for the new owner. It was really fun just to look at it in person as I love the sleeve and collar effect!
