    Men really do have their heads in the sand and are missing a trick by just 'not caring' about their appearance in jeans and tee shirts! Its also pretty disrespectful to their partners, when we gals make a big effort to look good (for ourselves but also for them!).

    If they just appreciated how downright gorgeous and head turning they'd be by wearing a classy suit and tie & also how rebellious in today's dress down society.

    Thanks ladies,you're too sweet!

    GHT—The dress has an empire waist with piping in the (empire) seam. I would have to separate the top, bottom, piping, and zipper to let the dress out. It's tightest just above the diaphragm, which is where the empire seam is located. I guess women in the 50's didn't do a whole lot of lat pull-downs. I do quite a bit of sewing, and I would rather make a replica than tamper with this little gem. It's red velvet and absolutely pristine. The fabric is not soiled or faded, and the velvet isn't even crushed!

    Have to agree with you Frank, I have a similar suit, it got so much attention at my God-daughter's wedding that my wife had to remind the photographer just whose happy day it was.

    My auntie was busy again: she altered a dress for me that a friend's friend gave me and that might very well become my summer favorite.
    It's light as a feather, cotton top and rayon lining, with a pussy bow.
    Oh, and it has half long sleeves - I forgot to take a picture without the cardi.

    This is so gorgeous! I love that fur cape. I have a similar one, and every time I wear it people can't seem to resist petting me. I'll have to find a reason to bring it out again before it gets to warm.

    Looking good everyone! I haven't dresses 40s in a while (been doing 60s and 70s a lot lately). I went out like this last night and nothing but compliments!

    I had a good day today. First time wearing this dress today and my scarf was my great grandma's, 100% silk!

    I absolutely love that shade of blue! The pattern on your dress is just right. Not too busy and adds character. :)

    Thank you. The pattern is sort of odd, hard to describe. I guess it's a sort of geometric pattern of green, white, and navy.

    Question:

    What do you ladies wear underneath sheer blouses? I have been finding a lot of beautiful blouses lately but unfortunately they are sheer. I'm thinking of maybe just a one piece shapewear underneath but just wanted to seek out any alternatives.

    I usually wear a vintage camisole or slip under sheer blouses or dresses. Target carries camisoles that are a good approximation, usually in beige and black. I avoid wearing anything too tight because it doesn't give me the look I like.

    Lovely early 1920s beaded dress I bought recently (and a rather grim expression on my part, I'm afraid!). The beaded motif on this has quite subtle colour shadings, and is lovely and sinuous.

    Thank you, Stray Cat! I was hugely amused when I saw the photos my friend took, as I have the same intensly serious expression in all of them.
