Just right for summer “formal-ish” events and dances, and what could be better for St. Patrick’s Day? This one is pretty dressy, but I could just as easily see someone wearing it as a hostess ensemble for an elegant at-home event. It’s very well made and fully lined, but has a casual feel about it, too. Must be the color.
The tag says Tee-ca New York. Never heard of them, but the dress is lovely in a heavy knit with beads embellishing the neckline. That color was very popular in the late ’60’s, too. It’s kind of MOD, James Bond and all of that.
Like yesterday when I discovered the 1940’s dresses (and they all fit me!), it’s just such a thrill to run across an item that immediately transports you to another time and place. That’s half the fun of it all – where you’ll be “going” tomorrow. You just never know . . . . . . . . . .
