Air flow blue | Vintage 1950s 1960s scalloped edges Elegant shift dress
This beautiful dress with her embroidered scalloped edges comes in a good medium-weight material.
My mom recently commented on how she used to love her clothes back in the 70s because they all had good weight - and reminded me of something we tend to forget in today's fast-fashion-inundated scheme of things - that garments with a good weight made the lady-like form look slimmer and more elegant, it helped elongate the silhouette as the fabric had a sense of gravity which was both natural and stately.
Between the genteel scallops and those awesome functional pockets - we are totally swooning. We would add white gloves and pillbox hat for a going-to-NYC for the holidays look and feel.
