Adele Simpson Dress and Coat - 1956

What could be better than a dress by Adele Simpson?  How about one with a matching coat?  Spatter print silk in Delphinium blue makes the dress and lines the blue wool coat.  Sold for $275 in 1956 (about $2,289 in today's dollar.)

Synchronicity achieved! I just found an Adele on the rack I had forgotten about.

This is majorly a classic 50's silhouette and I love it! It is really funny to see how similar the poses of the models were then to how they are now; I still don't understand why standing like that makes the clothes more attractive. Haha! Anyway, I look forward to researching some more Adele Simpson designs because this one is great; thanks for opening my eyes to her.
