ONE OF MY FAVORITE (I SAY THAT A LOT!) DRESSES FROM THE 1970'S, BY COS COB

I love wearing this dress and it’s special because it belonged to a family member.  Cos Cob was a well-known maker of women’s sportswear back in the day, similar to Bobbie Brooks, but I don’t think that the company was as old.

This dress is cotton in a wonderful print, with a long pointed collar and nice, easy shape.  Thank goodness it isn’t culottes, which were popular then.  They look convenient, but they’re really not.

A sleeveless shift is great for casual summer wear and always looks smart if you accessorize properly.  That’s the key to transforming most ensembles and women used to do that so well.  The Europeans, I must say, are better at it than Americans now.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
