Weekend Eye Candy - Nina Ricci, 1936

What better way to greet the New Year than in a dress from the 1930s?  Nina Ricci designed this metallic brocade gown in 1936.  It is deep Persian blue with a multi-colored metallic design in the weave of the cloque fabric.  Whatever you decide to wear tonight, have fun, stay safe, and party like it's 2012!

I had a little metallic in my NYE dress (and a lot of it in with my vintage Whiting and Davis mesh clutch) but that Ricci --what a stunning dress! I can't imagine how much more gorgeous it looks in full Persian blue color.

Thanks for spoiling us with such beautiful items in 2011; looking forward to more of the same in 2012. And of course wishing you a happy and successful new year!
