Damn damn damn tiny waist!

Look what I found.

Purple, rustly party dress.

Dropped waist, square neck, little  cap sleeves, back straps I’ve never seen before.

Feels and moves and sounds like silk taffeta.

And it’s made by a talented designer, sold originally in an exclusive shop.

But damnit! The tiny waist! The teeny tiny waist.

I can’t risk hurting it. I love this dress too much to harm it. Someone else should have it.

    I recently found a cancelled check from 1961 on the sidewalk near my house in Wilmette, IL. It fascinated me for so many reasons, not the least of which because it was made out to Ann Sunshine Naomi Wise inc. I realize this is an old post…do you still have the dress? Have you ever seen this label before or since?

    • Ah, I sold the dress because it didn’t fit. Had a super tiny waist. I’ve looked since for her stuff but nothing’s popped up yet… Mind if I ask how much the check was for?

        So sorry, I forgot about this post. Until now. My kids are home from college and I was sharing the story of my “found” with them. The check was for $34.85 and was dated Dec. 12 1961. Almost 50 years to the day from when I found it. So weird.
