Violet, you're turning Violet, Violet!

Just yesterday a very good friend of Decades brought in this lovely Ceil Chapman dress. This fun little violet silk crepe dress has "Garden Party" written all over it. We all know spring is upon us (Oh God please let the winter come to an end!), and with spring comes garden parties, polo matches, and everything moves outdoors.

The lovely little frock below needs to be taken outside and shown a good time; she simply can't be cooped up any longer. It has been said that Ceil Chapman designed like an architect, every little detail perfectly executed. This dress stays true to the namesake with an amazing ruched, scoop neckline and cascade of pleated crepe down the front on the bust.

There is some slight discoloration under the arms and near the hemline, but it is only noticeable if one looks very close. If anyone is looking that closely at you, either the evening is going very well, or you need to quickly and quietly move away from the individual.


Ceil Chapman violet silk crepe dress with pleated cascade and scoop neck, c.50's. Contemporary size 6-small 8.
