Doris Raymond Wearing Sophie of Saks, 1966

Last week, Doris Raymond of The Way We Wore in Los Angeles wore this stunning gown and feather trimmed stole by Sophie of Saks to the premiere of her new reality show, "L.A. Frock Stars" on The Smithsonian Channel.

This morning, I was perusing the March 1, 1966 issue of Vogue magazine and look what I found!  Doris, here's your dress!  The caption says, "Feather print on a long halter dress of silk twill; a stole edged in marabou. All clean black and white.  From the ready-to-wear collection by Sophie, at Saks Fifth Avenue.  (Dear Vogue, that's ostrich, not marabou.  But I forgive you.)  House of Berland earrings.

I love it when this happens!  Don't forget to watch episode 2 of "L.A. Frock Stars - The Awards Season" tonight!
