Gratuitous outfit post, to distract you while I feverishly work on the red polonaise, to be worn this weekend (eeek! it has no sleeves!)
Also, this is one of my favorite dresses ever. I did not make it, but was lucky enough to snag it from a friend, Lady Carolyn, who was liquidating some of her amazing vintage closet. It’s a black silk sheath, nicely fitted through the waist, and with some pleaty detail on the bust.
I wore it with an ochre colored pillbox hat, to Debbie and Oscar’s wedding on Sunday.
