Vintage Value Venture - Make Mine Mid-Century

The heat is on...
well almost with Summer just around the corner
and for summer nights in Beverly Hills you want to be outdoors
preferably sipping cocktails in your poolside cabana
amid the Mid-Century decor at the Mosiac Hotel
and since orange is the color of the season,
you might as well go all out in this vintage orange cocktail dress

How amazing is the back of this dress
I remember my mother wearing low backed dresses like this waaay back in the day

Naturally a vintage handbag is in order


and keep it comfortable, leave the heels at home
and choose summer sandals instead
these from Kate Spade even have Mod-ish ball thingys...very 1960s

Vintage Mid-Century jewelry?
well but of course...
the big bold coral ring from 1960's Beverly Hills master jeweler to the Stars, William Ruser

and some fab carved coral and diamond earrings


Don't you wish that Summer was here already?

Oh Miss BHB, shopping vintage with you is now on my bucket list, it is a must. Love what you selected, we have some serious orange mid-century things on hand here, not nearly as nice as the goodies you have shared, but still fun. I'm am trapped in that era.

Smiles at you,
tp

PS: You are NOT the only one who doesn't love J. Crew, good gravy, I thought I was the primo gasbag bleating about "it is all becoming hideous at Crew".
