Well if this doesn't brighten up your Sunday I don't know what will!  It's a 1960's chiffon shift that is a perfect shade of buttery, sunshine yellow . It's a short, simple shape and has long, unlined sheer sleeves.  The small mandarin collar and matching cuffs have a braided finish to them with an iridescent thread that is woven throughout.  There is also slight gathering at the front of the collar to provide ease in the fit.  This is a really fun piece!  Check it out in the shop today! 

1950's Pale yellow party dress

This sweet 1950's party dress is stunning.  Its soft pale yellow color, delicate lace details, and tiny pleats are a winning combination.  In my search for beautiful fashion from the past, I've come to the realization that people were a lot smaller back in the "good ol' days."  With the wide ranges of sizing needed for modern day shoppers, sometimes it's nice to come upon a dress that isn't a size 2!  Although it's pinned back for photos, this dress will actually best fit a size medium or large.  How refreshing!  Can't you image this being worn to a baby shower, ladies brunch, or an outdoor wedding?  Stop by the shop and take a look!
