These days, it is rare indeed when a modern garment catches my eye and gets me opening my wallet. However, I must tell you that I ADORE this 30s-inspired silk flutter sleeved Flori dress that I got at Anthropologie on sale for $49.95 (regular $228.00)!! Really, this garment is a two-in-one deal because it consists of the sheer silk floral overdress AND a black slip that is that PERFECT mid-30s length (as we 30s lovers know, these slips are getting SO hard to find!). I love that the dress even has the period-authentic strings-and-snaps details inside the shoulders to hold the slip straps in place! All in all, this was a great investment. I'll try to snap a pic of me in the actual garment shortly. In the mean-time, I thought I would also mention another 30s-inspired garment my friend Sara brought to my attention the other day: the Gabriella. While it is clearly a knockoff of a 30s NIGHTGOWN, the Anthro site is calling it a slip. Oy! Still, the colour, the fabric, the lace detailing channel the elements of 30s lingerie I find quite swoon-worthy. Too bad about the price ($198.00 USD)...still, it might be worth watching for it on the sales racks?
