Another of my absolutely fabulous finds – fit for a princess at a party or Prom. This one is a quintessential 1950s pouf dress by Frank Starr, (of California, I believe) in a floral print. He was a well-known designer at that time.
I’m always amazed at what I find, and this frock really turned the lights on! Organza over rayon or acetate, with a velvet-covered belt & the makers’ label on an inside seam.. In virtually perfect condition.
I can just see Elizabeth Taylor flouncing around in this in one of her movies, playing a young woman ready to go to a dance party. Imitations are made, but true vintage can’t be replaced and it’s priceless, in my opinion.
This example can hardly compete with the one shown yesterday, or the day before. They are all wonderful and uniquely original. We’ll step backwards in time just a little bit tomorrow. What’s coming up until then? You just never know . . . . . . . .
