I think these are all beautiful. The cuts, the patterns, the design, even the naming conventions. Limelight sounds like some refreshing drink on a cool summers eve. I wish the photographs were in color. Do you have a favorite? More tomorrow, stay tuned!

I love "Hayride"! That little detail work on the side is divine! I just thrifted a bunch of 50's suits that I can't wait to wear. One of the is a Rose Marie Reid, its black. Need to have it cleaned before swimsuit season!
