This gown should have to have the internetism totally spelled out: Oh. My. God.
It’s a 1950s olive pinstripe velveteen dress, any type of one of which adjectives would usually have me reaching for the “buy” button. Sadly, it’s not my size (it’s B36/W28), however if it’s yours, you can discover it here.
Here’s what Robin (the seller) has to state about the designer of the dress, Mildred Orrick:
“I think about Mildred Orrick to be one of the trick weapons of ‘50s fashion. I believe she was accountable for the very best work under the Anne Fogarty label, throughout the mid-50s, as well as she took over for Claire McCardell’s label when McCardell died in 1957. Her work is much rarer than both of those labels as well as just as fantastic in style as well as quality. I’d likewise compare her to Tina Leser as well as Nettie Rosenstein.”
Looking at the dress, I believe it!
What’s more, it has pockets. I told you this was your lucky day …
