The gray dress

My love for this dress is unlimited. 

It looks like it's straight off a runway, with quality that can now only be found in couture and vintage. I've been slowly giving in to my love for 60s fashions, having grown up on large doses of Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie. It was inevitable.

I just love the clean lines and often simplicity of the era, often topped off with a dramatic detail like a bold collar or jewel toned embroidery. 

This dress just has that je ne sais quoi that belongs to the 60s, it's so easy to wear, and at this awkward time of year between winter and spring, it's just what my wardrobe needed.

Absolutely beautiful for sure. That's exactly why I like the 60s as well - clean, simple, yet bold.

One more thing! I think there is a designer label in there somewhere- if you find it let us know who made it!

Those beautiful Ferragamos! My grandmother had a collection that was the envy of all the women in her small Midwestern farm town. (In truth the collection would have been the envy of any woman with a penchant for Ferragamo shoes.) It's a shame that I sport a size 11 not 8.5AA. You knocked it out of the park with this post, and I am truly inspired and happily nostalgic thinking about my Grandma Lee--my style icon, and the reason I know vintage like I do. Kudos!
