The Ladies of Summer

I finally got around to updating the look of The Wardrobe Miser from Fall ’07 to Summer ’08. As I was putting together the background image, I realized that my readers (all 3 of you) might want to know who these lovely ladies are and what they’re wearing. So without further ado, here are the Ladies of Summer 2008, showing off their vintage threads.

Joan is wearing a 1953 Claire McCardell “string bean” chemise with matching jacket.
Linda is wearing a 1969 Courreges dress.
Deborah is wearing a 1973 Ted Lapidus wool pantsuit.
Kimberly is wearing a 1992 Michael Kors strapless dress with cardigan.

  1. Linda is so space age! I was going to leave you a comment about your fall ladies. I do have a concern about this though…Deborah’s and Kimberly’s and Joan’s family can’t see their daughters…

  2. I guess it all depends on how wide your browser window is. I usually keep mine somewhere between 1100-1200 pixels wide, so only Deborah is hidden. You’re right, though, at around 1000, you can only see Linda, Linda, and more Linda.

    They won’t be hiding for long, though. I have a new redesign planned that will put the seasonal ladies up on the header.

    You may recognize Deborah as the one wearing the slit-up-to-there evening dress in the Fall background.
