Visible Monday: Dressing Quietly
I know that it is vintage--it has shoulder pads and the fabric is rayon, suggesting the 1980s. But the empire waist, a profile I've grown attracted to in the past year, suggests the late 1960s.
I've begun to collect quite a lot of vintage, but I'm not very schooled in dating much of it and I'm in the market for an excellent reference book on the topic. Are there books like this? Or is it a skill that one gradually learns in the collecting process.
I hope to post again on Wednesday, but in the mean time, I send sincerest wishes for any of my readers who may be holed up due to this impending storm, for the safest possible week.
This post is part of Patti's weekly Visible Monday. Come join the fun.
