This Old Thing?

-003-smallAnother vintage dress from my collection – hieroglyphs and female figures, including Hathor, in a black, olive/gold, and white colorway. A relaxed fit with casual open neckline above fabric-covered buttons, empire waist, and front slit at bottom. Reminiscent of Paganne, but there is no label so I assume it was a successful home creation. Alas – not my size.

Red Carpet Cleo

1For the star who prefers to be carried down the red carpet while reclining on a litter: a vintage Paganne Egyptian print fashioned into a floor-length gown with high side slit. The strong black, red and white motif features geometric patterns and Pharaohs, and the angular neckline is reminiscent of certain costumes from Liz Taylor’s Cleopatra blockbuster several years earlier.





Ladies Who Lunch

For the socialite with a non-conformist streak.  Let the other girls wear pearls and tweed – you’ll be relaxed and cool in this Paganne jersey dress with bold Egyptian motifs.  Perfect for jetting off to the Riviera when you need to escape Stepford.
