As you now know, I have a number of frocks in this style but this one is special – because I found it during my trip to New Orleans. It’s very cute on and comes with sentimental value because I LOVE New Orleans and hadn’t been there in a long time.
This day-dress is made of a lovely soft cotton (worn many times) in mocha with a coffee-colored print design. Just the right shade for early Autumn days. As is common with some of the best garments, this one’s fabric-covered belt has a matching-color plastic buckle. It’s always interesting when buckles and buttons are dyed to match the fabric.
The clothing in New Orleans, I found, has fabulous stories associated with it and many of the shopkeepers can tell you some! The garments always seem to come from interesting people living in interesting places and with fascinating histories . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..
