At the recent London Elle Style Awards, one dress caught my eye intensely...worn by singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, it is a gorgeous rose print strapless dress from the 1950s.
Some fashion critics thought Sophie’s choice of a lip bag and shoes in black was sort of weighing down the rose dress, but I see the point of adding a little humor and irony to the 1950s sweetness.
This cotton rose print sundress is from my sold archives. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wished I had more than one of this dress!
But there are other cotton rose print dresses from the 1950s, including these currently available:
If you like the graphic-ness of the print of Sophie’s dress, maybe this one in bold black and white will suit you. I’d be tempted to carry a red lip bag and wear red shoes! (Click on any of these to go to the listing.)
