The perfect summer dress?

June 29, 2009

Part of the downside of thumbing through old magazines is that you fall in love with outfits you can’t get hold of. (Although, yes, I know the trick is to use the magazine for inspiration and whip out the old sewing machine…) I love this summer sun dress sported by Merle Oberon in the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar from 1939. There’s just something about the vivacious print that’s perfect for a hot summer’s day.  The designer isn’t listed, but apparently the dress was sold at the store Bergdorf Goodman in the United States. I know the photo is in black and white, but can you imagine what colour the dress must be? (Happily the magazine provides a caption to let you know. It’s a “red and yellow printed silk”. But you guessed that anyway, right?)
