Must Have! | Preen Sheen | Vintage 1950s 1960s Blue and Brown irregular color-blocked stripes Day dress
We do not know why, but these colours make us want to say "Like sand through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives". :D
Maybe it's the saturated colours, the warm honey-brown and dark vivid blue. And the irregularity of the stripes, which remind us of a leopard's prowess and a humming bird's humility at the same time.
We think the lady who wears this would be strong but vulnerable at the same time. Both in just the right amounts.
