Cole of California makes a killer sundress!

I recently found a cute sundress made by Cole of California on one of my favorite sites to shop... You all know which one I mean as I am a super thrifty gal! I know that Cole of California made lots of swimwear items but I never knew they did dresses! So off I went to research my latest find as I was very interested to gain more knowledge about the company. There's not a lot of info out there regarding their dresses....in fact, I ran across very few dresses online. I did finally get lucky and discovered The Powerhouse Museum's site (which looks like an absolutely amazing place) and was excited to discover this cheongsam and bronze capri pants outfit! What a killer outfit and it's made in the same pattern material as my sundress! This info helped me date the dress to early 1950's.









I love the peasant style gathered bust! The dress is in amazing condition and looks like it's never been worn. A keeper for my collection! I think I need some cute new shoes now!
