The Modes Royale tour is winding down. Just two more weeks left to go. Hopefully, you've been able to glean a little inspiration from the photos or copy them and create your own collection. Vintage books like these are getting more and more difficult to find.
Today's collection is the Spring/Summer 1953 catalogue. This is one of my favorites. Take special note of the small line drawings next to some of the dresses. You'll see the jackets that went over the dresses. I'm reminded of a scene in the movie "Rear Window." Grace Kelly walks in wearing a lovely suit. She takes off the jacket and takes your breath away. Underneath the classic jacket is a halter that is absolutely spectacular and totally unexpected.
I adore the dress on the right above.
