The Vested Gentress:Turtles on the March

We acquired a few more pieces of vintage fashion this week. A classic 1950s party dress, a leather 50s man's coat,a raspberry 1930s dress, a pink damask 1960s formal gown. All are very nice and good quality. Because we are picky that way. 
But this The Vested Gentress maxi dress wins the Charm award.  How could it not?  There are turtle families marching through the grass all around the hem. And with a definite snooty attitude about it. The Vested Gentress of Valley Forge, PA did sporty clothes with hand screened prints. The design and placement are wonderful. And since I find a small eastern box turtle when I weed the rock garden, this made me smile.

Coming some day to Past Perfect Vintage:
