1960's with Renaissance Inspiration


You have to see these sleeves, they are great. This dress has Renaissance inspired sleeves with a soft puff and pleated ruffle. Who makes anything like this anymore? The whole look is topped off so romatically with a wide ruffled portrait collar. The textile is red/pink and green Pucci-style floral geometry. Red and green are visual opposites on the color wheel, which makes them a vibrant, hot combination. This is a lesson we have had to re-learn about color as we pulled ourselves out of the "let's all wear black" 1990's.

So, if you are feeling colorful, adorable, cute and whitty, this is a dress (or top) for you. It's up for sale now on our shop, or come see it in the store on the rack.
