A FAVORITE SPRING/SUMMER DRESS FROM THE FIFTIES, WITH A FRENCH THEME PRINT

I love this little shirtwaist with a saucy, sassy French foodie print. The style is what almost every woman wore as everyday dresses in the fifties and early sixties.  A classic day dress – house dress.

It’s a little bit sheer, so you have to wear one of your lovely slips underneath, but women almost always did during the mid-century era – sheer dress or not.  Because they were usually wearing a garter belt or girdle and nylons, they needed lingerie to mask the lines and let the dress move on top.

Perfect for shopping and light work around the home; coffee with the neighbor.  Easy to wear.

It’s what “happy days” was all about . . . . . . . . .

  2. I just heard back from Judy and she says she is still VERY interested in the guest post, she has been working overtime at work and can barely get her own posts out. She relayed to me that she would very much like perhaps a monthly post for a different classification of fashion (shoes, dresses, men’s suits, etc) along with about 800 words. After you send it to her, she will post it. I suggest you email her yourself and I will step out of the way here and let you two talk to each other. Good luck and I’ll be watching.
