As I prepare to fly to NYC this morning to ring in the New Year, I remind you of one of my fashion mantras: nothing boring, nothing basic, and make black not look black by the way you accessorize. Jean Muir understood this and it's a great resolution to follow this advice. If you get confused, just wear vintage Muir. That's the beauty of timeless vintage: as the clock strikes midnight on the 1st of January, your vintage collectible is only more desirable as it gets another year older.
Wishing you a perfectly marvelous 2012 that isn't boring, basic, or black.

This dead stock magenta lurex-infused Missoni dress has a distinctive raised pattern in addition to grids. I love how Missoni knows how to mix patterns and colors that is is a signature of the Italian House. You can easily wear this on NYE with some sparkly tights and sky-high Atwoods or dress it down with a pair of Ferragamo flats. Totally day to evening. This dress was NEVER worn and is part of a large cache of deadstock vintage I purchased a few months ago, but seems to be selling more quickly than we can post! I am nuts for knits, and some might argue that I am just nuts, but I don't fear self-deprecation especially in the wee hours of the morning!

One of my resolutions is to take a real vacation. All my time-off is always work related, and when looking at this sweater dress, I think this would be perfect to wear on a yacht. (Well I wouldn't be wearing it, but someone fabulous on the yacht would be wearing it, no?). Now a yacht isn't what I got, but should someone wish for some fashionable entertainment, I make for a lovely guest and have my share of nautical-themed attire to wear (white Hermes jeans and Richard Grand cashmere cable-knit sweaters). If I am your guest, I imagine my hostess will be wearing something like this Galliano pullover. Ideal for when we port for lunch and eat momen's earlier caught fish freshly grilled and then stroll through the local stores. Surely, you are an epic shopper!
Well you do not need a yacht to understand how fantastic this sweater dress is as all you need to do is throw this one and wear a pair of sandals and your Cruise ensemble is set.
John Galliano hand-knit cable sweater dress in brown cotton, c. mid 1980s. Marked size 1, flexible modern sizing 2 to 6. SOLD
