The description of this dress by Henri Bendel Young-Timers from 1949 does much more for it than the black and white photo. "Young-Timers brighten summer evenings with an iridescent rayon chiffon in the dark glowing green and blue of the sea...the draped bodice, shoulder to shoulder decolletage and flowing longer-then-skirt-length panels hinting of autumn fashions in the making." Blue and green! Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Sold for $49.95 in 1949 (about $475 in today's dollar.)
