The Season of Pretty

When I saw this beautiful Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton  eyelet lace dress with overblown daisies and wisps of pale blue colored ostrich feathers, all I could think about was wearing it for a stroll.  With the LV parasol of course.

Prettiness made a comeback for this Spring and it is pretty irresistible.  What girl would not dream of riding a carousel on a white horse in that dress?!

Emilio Schuberth was a Roman couturier who understood prettiness.  He also loved lush, voluptuous women.  He himself was quite the dandy and drove around Rome in a Cadillac with a lace interior and full of flowers.

This beyond beautiful Emilio Schuberth gown from the 1950s is in a pale seashell pink.  The slip style dress has an 'apron' overskirt that is entirely lined in horsehair and boned so it poufs out from the body.  One of the things women and collectors of vintage love is the workmanship and this dress is magnificently made.  The LV Spring dresses actually have a puffed shape that is slightly reminiscent of this Schuberth.  So maybe the perfect thing to wear with this would be a pair of the sugar almond colored LV mules and that parasol.  So perfect for a stroll don't you think?!
