Next, submitted for your oggling, drooling, envying pleasure is a 'GORGEOUS Rare UNBELIEVABLE Beautiful MIND BLOWING!' Floral IRENE LENTZ Vintage 50s Cocktail SWING Coat M - available with a BIN price from lucitebox. Wow, I love the print and look at the seaming on the back! I wish I had the occasion to wear something like this.
Like Adrian, Irene was also a designer for MGM movie studios. Adrian was there during the 1930s and Irene for most of the 1940s. How about that, I didn't even plan that MGM connection, I just chose 2 items that I liked and they turned out to be vaguely related. I'm sure that I mentioned this before, but if you love looking at clothing in old movies, a nice reference book for the wardobe designers of old movies is Costume Design in the Movies
I'd love to own something worn by Myrna Loy. Something 1930s to mid 1940s. It doesn't even have to be a glamour gown. It could be a little suit or even a cute sweater and skirt outfit, whatever. I'll take it.
Now, I refrain from talking about the way other women look. I don't like to talk about someone's appearance or weight or anything, because I wouldn't want anyone to talk about me that way. But this photo, just struck me as so creepy, I gotta post it. Both gals are very pretty in their own way. But don't they look like mannquins in this photo? I mean really. Posh looks very robotic and Dita is very - white.
