Suzy Parker Wearing Sophie of Saks

From 1958, the gorgeous Suzy Parker wearing a made-to-order ensemble by Sophie of Saks.  Asian style black silk surah is jacquard woven with golden brown flowers and fashioned into a sheath dress with a draped skirt.  The floral clusters in the fabric are cut out and appliqued onto a black cashmere sweater to match.  Here, the cardigan is buttoned up over the dress, but you could also just drape it casually over your shoulders.
