Back to the 50s


     At long last, we are back to the blog. And we come back with a lot of great 1950s summer dresses in a rainbow of colors. This is a style I missed the first time around. At least the adult version. Always a bit sad about that. Not quite as sad as missing 1940s gabardine suits, but close, So close. 
This full skirted and fitted bodice dress is back in style. Of course- it's feminine, pretty, comfortable and wearable. I was in the dreaded mall today, shopping to no avail ( when will I learn?) and the best dresses I saw were floral prints very similar in cut to the great blue dress in the first row.
Another lesson, not that we needed one,  that class and style are forever.
