Photo Number Seventy-Nine
I love the pleats on the sleeve of this blouse or dress. The hat is surely a real fashion statement..and her glasses..held with just a nose piece and a chain....I still don't know exactly what these glasses are called..but she wears them well.
Any guesses on the year? I think it was a wedding photograph..
Thanks so stopping by! Do come again:)
Norkio : The type of glasses is called a pince nez - nose pinch.
