vanilla silk dress

years I was wearing nearly only black
now I like more colours, especially colours in between and mixing in strange combinations

I thrifted in Paris some very nice pieces like the vanilla dress.

The shape caught my eyes first:
kimono like upper part
open back
full skirt, nearly 5m lenght on the hem

the dress is from the late 40ies beginning of the 50ies
fine silk completly worked on silkorganza with a light corsetlike upperpart
the complet beauty of this dress is only visible when wearing it in sunlight and turn around, around and around

will wear it with the african bead ring
