Two bits of gorgeousness

After spending literally five minutes browsing the Met Museum’s Costume Institute, looking for 1920s sailor dresses, I found myself left breathless by these two numbers. (And of course, I had to share them with you all!)

Aren’t they stunning? The one on the left is a 1948 Dior creation (doesn’t the twist in the skirt just make you melt?) and the right is a 1920’s Poiret dress. I just love the diaphonous sleeve and the way the one little green splash breaks up the gloriously textured ivory monochromatic scheme!

  1. Those dresses are beautiful.. I doubt that you couldn’t create a dress similar to those. I particularly like the second one; but I’m being rather partial, because all I saw was green today. Green grass, and the Mint Vivacity arrived today (which is far beyond fabulous!).. I can’t wait to see more about the Custom Projects!

  2. I really like the first one. I really do, I’m not just saying it do be different! The twist does make me melt, it looks extremely difficult!
