A gorgeous dance dress that may have been for Prom or just for any Big Band dance party – they used to be so popular back in the day. Will LOVE to see her on Stella, when I get around to it.
The year I found this beauty (not long ago), a famous label made one in the same basic style but not nearly so well done. No lovely flowers at the waistline and (horrors!) in a choice of several different colors. Can you imagine spending $250 for a dress and seeing one just like it (but maybe blue) at the party, too?!
After purchasing her for about 70 cents (that’s right – seventy pennies!) and exercising a little of my rehab know-how, this is what I had about 4 days later and just my size. Not bad, huh?
This frock could show up any time and have her dance card full immediately. The Belle of the Ball and completely unique. Some girls have all the luck . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

PRETTY FOR PROM, BUT I WOULDN’T KICK HER OUT OF THE ST. VALENTINE’S DANCE, WOULD YOU? – Magicvintagespy
Well, at 37 years old, I doubt I’ll get asked to prom (and it’d be weird if I did), but if this dress came in my size i might wear it for Easter brunch (with a nice hat, of course) or to a baby shower luncheon. It’s dainty, dignified, elegant, ladylike.
Oh, goody! Then, wait till you see my truly “Easter” frocks. A little less revealing and in lovely ice-cream colors.
