Today’s post is brought to you by the colour red

‘Tis vintage, this dress.

And I’m going to bet it’s from the ’60s.

And I’m also going to bet it was worn by a flight attendant (can’t you just imagine the matching hat?).

And also, that she flew to Rome a lot. Because it just seems like something she would do.

    do you think about Rome because of the red colour?

    anyway, the dress look stunning! is it in wool?
    I like the idea it was for a flight attendant….

    Love the outfit!

    I’ve thought about checking out Legends but I just don’t have much luck with vintage. Never hurts to look though! :)

    Great dress! I bet this flight attendant enjoyed cocktail hour to the fullest and powdered her nose with a glam compact in the ladies’ room.

    Do you ever watch Mad Men? Remember that flight attendant that came on strong to Don in one strange episode about his birthday? Your fictional flight attendant lady reminded me of her.

    You could look up old airline uniform patterns to see if your theory is right? And check for any tags on the inside for clues.
