Rainy,Grey Tuesday and Mollie Parnis

We just can't be fair to the remaining First Ladies on a grey, rainy, dreary, cold January day.
So in a tangential feature to our First Ladies A Day series, here’s 3 Mollie Parnis dress and coat sets we have at available. Don’t they look warm and chic on a January day? Yes, indeed they do.
What’s the Mollie Parnis and First Lady connection, you ask? She probably dressed more First Ladies than any other. She started with Mamie Eisenhower and dressed them all until Betty Ford. And maybe Rosalyn Carter - but I can't verify that.
