      Thank you, Apsutter! If that Mr. Blackwell dress would fit me, I would buy it. Looks as good now as it did then.

    Any chance you can link to items on etsy when you do these posts? Love these posts, and I almost always end up following links from the eBay posts but have noticed the links are absent from the etsy ones. It’s kind of a pain to try to hunt out the individual items.

    I love the Pierre Cardin dress! As for my favourite mid century designer, mine’s from earlier mid century. I love Schiaparelli, especially the lobster dress, just because it is so unusual!
