Navy blue again, with a white print. Shoulder pads; the whole bit. I just LOVE this style! Forties rayon drapes so nicely, feels lovely and has a beautiful sheen. Shoulder pads and a belted waist are so flattering to many women and I love the prism-cut rhinestone buttons, too.
Pictured here with the rayon slip I wear with it. Vintage nylon is wonderful, but rayon and silk slips are, also. I like to combine similar fabrics to my dresses in the undergarments I wear with them, if I can, or at least to match eras.
Also, woven peep-toe heels with ankle straps. These are from the Forties or early Fifties and are also favorites. All that’s missing are a garter and nylons, a handbag and jewelry – maybe a hat . . .
