Vintage Helen Rose Dress and Lucille Ball

I just love this dress, fits like a glove . Its the type of dress that is so timeless, very contemporary.
It has been listed on my Etsy shop this past week.  I will be getting it dry cleaned and ready for purchase this week. Stay tuned. Update: This Helen Rose  dress is soon to be on my new website.

I love a dress with history attached, its by Helen Rose . She was a famous Hollywood designer from the 1936 to 1968-for stars like Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and numerous others, she made these actresses so glamorous.

 Just this week I discovered my favorite movie that features her fashions  can be found in The Long, Long Trailer from 1953. I was so excited to discover this!  Helen Rose created so many fashions for this movie, and they are even being copied today.

- In this flick  you will see sweet party frocks, casual day dresses, a gorgeous wedding gown, and of course Lucy in cute jeans with blouses done in gingham checks and colorful stripes. Too cute for words.

  Enjoy this romp through the movie...
