Here’s a line-up of wool dresses from the 1960s and 1950s, lightweight and classic enough to wear in some parts of the world in three seasons of the year. Although I’m highlighting the second from the left, I’ll describe them all to start.
On the far left, a mid-weight jumper from the mid – late 1960s in a brown tweed. Can’t recall the maker, but made in the U.S. The bodice is lined and it is intended to be worn as a sleeveless dress or with a blouse underneath – your choice. In the cold weather I’d probably want the blouse, but some people like their arms bare even in winter and that was a popular style then. A cardigan sweater over would work, too. Although it didn’t come with its own little jacket, sometimes sleeveless dresses did. Great style for school or office.
Third in line is a straight, belted shift in heather blue by Pendleton. They’ve been making quality wool clothing for decades and it is always classic. This one from the late ’60s can also be worn alone or will a blouse or turtleneck. Also perfect for school or work. Some women would put this on as a day dress for shopping, meetings, etc.
On the far right is a wiggle sheath from the late ’50s. Also a U.S. maker. It is lined around the upper bodice and neck and is designed to be worn sleeveless. It’s a simple, un-decorated design but would look best in the evening or at an after-work party or dinner. It could have gone to work if dressed down a bit with a sweater or jacket.
Now for our star of the day – Are you looking for ideas about what to wear on St. Paddy’s Day? Look no further. This is a smart, figure-enhancing dress that is demure enough for any setting and also sophisticated enough for any. It all depends on your accessories. In a lovely kelly/emerald green, it’s also a nice transition color into Spring. Eve Le Coq of California produced lovely dresses – very chic.
It’s not been unusual for me to encounter these kinds of wool frocks at various places in my searches. If you find yourself in a store, they are often marked down at this time of year. Don’t let wool fabric discourage you – as long as you’ve got a breathable (well-ventilated) storage bag for moth season and a clothing brush, it’s easy to care for and can be dry-cleaned at home if there are no serious stains. Very versatile, very vintage and worth the investment.

Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I have
truly enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!
Thanks so much! I post almost every day, so please come back and enjoy. It’s so much fun!
248589 627637Hi there, just became aware of your weblog by way of Google, and identified that it is genuinely informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels. I’ll be grateful in case you continue this in future. A lot of men and women is going to be benefited from your writing. Cheers! 668910
I really appreciate your support. Please come back and continue to have fun with me!
Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I’m not a techie and I can’t answer your first question – but, I have had good luck with WordPress. It seems to be a good place for a beginner to start. Hope this helps!
After I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked
the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a
comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service?
I’m so sorry for your trouble. I don’t think that I have any control over this, but I will see if I can find an answer. I am guessing that you have to do it from your end, but then you might cut off any notifications that you are wanting to follow. I’ll see what I can find out.
Hi again – I have left a question about this with the support staff of my blog host. If I get any helpful answers, I’ll let you know. Perhaps your own blog host or server could help you with this from your end. I am not a techie at all, so I’m also without an answer.
I’ve had one more thought. Perhaps I could mark your recent comment to me as spam, and then you might be blocked in the future. But I wouldn’t want to do that to you and I’m not sure if that would prevent you from getting anything sent to you from my site. I’ll wait and see if I get any other answers.
Hello, again – I asked support staff on my blog about your question. An answer came suggesting that there should be an “unsubscribe” button on each of the emails. The staff person suggested that you click on these. She also said that if she knew your email and blog address that she could unsubscribe you completely, but that you may not wish to do that. I’ll let you know if I get any more information.
I hope that you received the 2 or 3 replies that I sent after your question arrived and that you have found a way to address the issue.

might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
Thanks for asking! I remember seeing something about making the blog mobile-friendly on my admin page. I think I had done this, but I can’t speak about your individual device. I’ll check my own side and make sure. Feel free to give me an update.

quality based data.

This article gives clear idea for the new users
of blogging, that actually how to do blogging.
Great beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend
your website, how can i subscribe for a blog website? The account
helped me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit
acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear concept
Hi there all, here every one is sharing such knowledge, thus it’s good to read this blog, and I used to visit this webpage everyday.
I was curious if you ever considered changing the
structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
Thanks so much for your comments. I’m not quite sure what your suggestions are, but I’m always open to feedback! Thanks for visiting.
Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
But think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could
definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.
Thanks for the suggestions. I’m not sure how I may change the blog in the future – I’m thinking about it and always appreciate comments from my followers and visitors! Anything more specific would be interesting to hear about.
I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble. You’re amazing!
Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, awesome blog!
Thank you – glad you’re enjoying it!
This really is the 4th post, of your site I read through.
