JUST FOUND!! A BEAUTIFUL TRUE VINTAGE LOUNGE DRESS FOR SUMMER – PATIO PARTY, HERE I COME . . . . .

IMG_1481Despite the gradually-cooling temps, I’m ready for the BBQ – maybe not the volleyball or badminton game.  This gown was custom-tailored of a beautiful fabric (look at those colors to die for!)  Though synthetics are often not the most desirable material, that’s one thing that most have going for them – the way they take and hang on to colors.

Probably polyester, but it’s got an uncommon finish that feels almost like moleskin and a nice drape.  This is a perfect outfit for the iconic American entertaining genre – the Patio Party, inaugurated in the early 1960’s along with the basement party room with built-in bar.  Pretty soon, the days of the chic living-room cocktail party were over – replaced by the Cha-Cha party downstairs and the Patio Party & cook-out in the back yard.

Save those LBD’s for dinner dates.  It’s easier to do the Twist and the Limbo in shorts, capris or a long, loose skirt, not to mention a bikini – but I’m not exactly sure where the Pool Party got started.  Probably Hollywood, or Miami, or . . . . .
