Does your favorite dress make you feel awesome? Mine does. I have a few that I love, and this Navy Blue Bow Print 40s Rayon one, is definitely in my top five.
The best part about it, is the bodice and neckline. It has a faux two-piece look – as if the neckline is open with a blouse underneath – but the non-functioning buttons make it look like its buttoned up. Also, the very pointy collar with the silver chain swag is a great tough. Lastly, the angled pockets are a great touch – who doesnt love a dress with pockets?!
I found this lovely dress at a local private sale, a woman here in town invited me into her home to purchase dresses and accessories that belonged to her mother and sister in the 40s and 50s. I was really happy becaues a majority of the pieces were sized from 10-14. This one I couldnt let go of. Its clearly handmade and fits me perfectly.
