Of Polka Dots and Playsuits
One of my favorite outfits is this adorable 40s midriff top and shorts set, made by Hollywood Premiere in a soft aqua and cream polka dot print. It’s a candy sweet confection with piping trim, gathered sleeves and a shirred bust—I have to say it’s one of my all-time favorite finds! I bought it from the fantastic Vee Vin Tage—these lovely gals sell vintage in addition to designing and sewing the most wonderful reproductions. They found this set at a popular vintage store in California—apparently Hillary Duff had just tried it on. I’m sure glad she passed on it, and even more glad that V Vintage decided to part with it as well! These photos were taken by the talented Matt Carson, one of my favorite portrait photographers to work with, at an afternoon shoot a few days ago.
