Stella is doing a 1950’s Janet Leigh thing this time (she loves her wigs). Just perfect in this custom-tailored red velveteen frock with rhinestone buttons and buckle. It’s a little warm for this time of year – probably best for Christmas or Valentine’s Day – but, how could I resist?
It’s got those little pointy cuffs on the 3/4/ sleeves that are so stylish, and a very full skirt. No lining or slip needed with this cotton velveteen fabric, as it’s very opaque and will be cuddly in cool weather.
The buttons and belt buckle are very nice, too. Would be lovely to still have notions like this available at the corner store . . . . .
