Wallis & the Lobster Quadrille

Speaking of Wallis, I can't help but feel this 1930s crepe rayon dress which I have just added to the shop might have been something W.S. would have worn. Maybe it's the high neck (a style she often wore) or the Schiaparelli-lobster-dress orange-red colour that gives me this idea.

I'm fascinated by Wallis - new book in my Amazon basket waiting for publication, That Woman by Anna Sebba - and I'm sure that dress would have been just her cup of tea (size 000, natch). G.Paltrow irritates me, and I've gone off Glee a bit too, but will prob. watch Madonna's WE movie out of curiosity ... I think Wallis' enduring strength was in her silence (celebs & royals today should pay attention!) - and I fret about her last years (so many of them) in that house with that notaire.... sorry this has turned into an essay! Your posts do this to me :)

I *love* the lobster dress. I seriously need to learn silk painting.

Your dress is very her! Gorgeous color.

The dress is gorgeous, I am rather excited about the Wallis film that Madonna is directing, especially considering all the designers that are involved. She was indeed an intriguing woman.
