Madeleine Vionnet Cocktail Dress 1920

Madeleine Vionnet Cocktail Dress 1920
The dress was made from one pattern piece with the centre front, back and sides falling on a perfect bias. Slits form the aperture for the head and arms. Fluted hanging sleeves and an uneven hemline accentuate the drape. Although other one piece constructions may have existed, this is the first one using the bias and in this case in all four directions of the quadrant.

    by PatriciaPatricia

    The sun is coming out and we are getting excited to get out difference versions of sunglasses we own. Going on a sunglasses hunt is always fun as there are so many different shapes, colors, and sizes. Our favorite pick today is this Silver Metal Frame Sunglasses from Quay Eyewear. Circular lens frame is finished off by the angular corner giving it a retro and chic cat-eye look. With the reflective metallic coated slim lenses that go across the circular frame, this sunglasses is looking cool and vintage inspired. Perfectly put together with lightweight metal frames and adjustable silicone nose pads for added comfort.

    Daily Obsesh: Colorful Prints

    by PatriciaPatricia

    Spring time weather is so inspiring and always makes it so fun to pick outfits. You can get creative with thin layers, vibrant colors, and crazy prints. That is exactly why we love this Printed Jersey Tunic from Donna Morgan. Combination of the color block with flower prints gives so much character to this dress. It can not get more interesting than the black, purple, and blue flowers on block of white, black, blue, and purple. Shift Silhouette and beaded round neckline adds classiness to this fun and spontaneous dress, making it a perfect contemporary spring time dress.
