The 1950s. The 50s dresses are fighting the 1920s for supremacy here at Past Perfect. First up is a blue, black and white abstract print in a silk twill with a black faille inset waistband.The nifty button tab detail doesn't show in the photos, but it's there. The bateau neckline and dolman sleeve combination is a favorite of mine. That's the price of entering the adult fashion market in the 1980s. The dropped waist band is a flattering look - defines the waist without shortening it and doesn't require a belt. There's stained glass quality to the print, too. And it's from a good store - Best & Co. 5th Ave New York. We have had some very nice garments from there over the years.
So there's today's 50s contender - let's see how tomorrow's stack up, shall we?
