The weather is warm, the Fourth of July roses on my terrace are blooming, and my assistant is spending the time she should be working staring out the window, a single tear running down her cheek. All infallible signs of Spring (and a sign that my assistant needs to be screamed at–excuse me for une minute, s’il vous plaît).
YOU! STOP SNIVELING AND GET BACK TO WORK! DO YOU THINK I DICTATE THIS BLOG-THING FOR THE SHEER DELIGHT OF IT? THIS IS A BUSINESS, YOU IDIOTIC LUMPKIN! NOW GO STEAM MY WISPS OF CHIFFON BEFORE I THROW THIS BOTTLE OF JOY AT YOU!!!
Ahem. As if she were worth the price of a bottle of Joy parfum.
Where was I? Ah, yes, Spring! And Spring leads to Summer, as we all know–at least most of us do, I’m not so sure about some people. My gift to you, mon cher readers, is a bouquet of lovely dresses in seasonal fabrics. Such as this Mint Condition silk beauty from the 1940s, with a novelty print of rose corsages! Size XL:
For the lady who prefers a more straightforward approach, this 1950s beige and tan poplin dress with full skirt, XL:
And for those steamy nights when a woman needs something sheer and floaty to lounge and sleep in, this floral nightgown from the venerable Christian Dior is just the ticket!
I also have a selection of vintage and contemporary warm-weather wear at my (ugh) Ebay store, should you feel like slumming.
I apologize to those of you who have been waiting with bated breath for me to give you my opinions on “Sex & The City”–they will be forthcoming soon!
