Fifties.Fun. I Don't Care if it's Fall

I know. These are warm weather dresses and Fall is coming. Tough noogies. The sun is shining, the trees are green and the weather is perfect. It's in the 80s here. It is not anywhere near time for wool or even jackets yet. So I bring you 2 finds from the 1950s.
The first:

A charming Emma Domb in white with billowing skirt, has its on net crinnoline, and sweet pink and green enbroidered flowers along the bust and down the streamers. Okay, it almost make my teeth hurt, but it IS adorable. I am fond of Emma Domb pieces from the 50s. The design in the later years, not so much, but these earlier ones have a flair.

Now available @ Past Perfect Vintage

Second: A 1950s sophisticated dinner/date/cocktail dress in hot pink linen/rayon weave. The cutouts are super, and this has definite wiggle potential for a medium size gal. Labeled Stephen O'Grady.
