Once again, the perennial designer de jeur, Anonyme, graces us with a gorgeous Sapphire blue silk gown with scalloped neckline, nipped in waist, and dramatic skirt of layered petals. This is straight-up chic late 1950s/early 1960s cocktail attire that Auntie Mame would approve. The foundation of the skirt is fitted to the body, but the layers that petal over the foundation skirt make this dress quite exceptional. Each "petal" is lined in purple so the blue and purple colors of this dress are quite vibrant and we love the idea of wearing this dress with a sassy purple peep-toe. You can channel Eva Gardner-glamour with a pair of diamond studs, or, funk it up with some Chinese Kingfisher feather antique earrings. The dress easily goes into black tie with the right accessories. On a cool night, toss a sable throw over your shoulders and head to the Morocco for drinks, dinner, and dancing -- those were the days.
