Helo Everyone!

I am leaving tomorrow for Paris to attend the Haute Couture shows and I will blog about everything for The Huffington Post (y'all better ream them!), so my personal blogs on the Decades blog may be few and far between, but Eri and Jarred will be blogging while I am away. I will be spending the 4th of July in Paris, but if I were hosting a BBQ in Los Angeles, I would be so happy if someone arrived wearing this amazing Claire McCardell swimsuit. Actually the swimsuit is quite Parisian as the print references Fernand Leger in name and style. What you don't see under the romper are the matching print panties, so feel free to do cartwheels and really romp in this romper without shwing too much. Click on one of the pictures below to see the print up close. It's quite charming. The neckline is ultra flattering and this is a true collectible. I am always mad for McCardell...she created modern American sportswear for women in the 1940s and 50s and her designs are totally relevant today and this is totally appropriate for Monday's 4th of July whether in Paris or Peirora.

Claire McCardell Leger print cotton romper summer playsuit with matching panties, c. early 1950s. Modern size 4 SOLD
