Inauguration Day in Blue

It appears that electric blue is the color of the moment. But it isn't anything new as indicated by the two vintage pieces below. The Nina Ricci electric blue cuff set in pewter metal is a great runway design from the early 1980s and it puts the "fantasy" in Bijoux Fantasie. The Anonymous bias cut late 1930s gown features a stunning pattern of electric blue pailettes on stretch net. The gown may be around 80 years old, but it looks shockingly modern from the sexy back to body skimming silhouette. If you are going to one of the exciting Obama Inauguration Balls in Washington D.C., the combo of the 1930s gown and Ricci bracelet is ideal as you will have the blue covered in Red, White, and Blue!
