Fall leaves (outfit #38)

I'm trying hard to deny the seasons, it is NOT winter, I swear!  This dress has all the perfect Autumn colors; pumpkin, mustard, olive, sunflower yellow, and tomato bisque red.  This rayon, late1940s dress came from an estate sale.  I initially thought the dress was later, because the pattern seemed late 60s and the colors are so saturated.  I love it when I get to meet the people who know the history of a dress and give me the accurate details.  It's by a maker called Pornette... no, seriously!  It has a really interesting tri-split collar and a matching belt.  My mustard colored gloves are from a different estate, and my multi-colored t-straps were thrifted.  I have accomplished one of my 2013 goals, and am wearing my first ever bullet bra.  I purchased it on Etsy as vintage deadstock, and am totally loving it!

Happy Sunday!


  1. These hues look so richly beautiful on you, dear Hannah. Autumn's palette is my very favourite, and I would have swooped down on this cheerful frock in a heartbeat, too. How neat that you were able to determine it hailed from the 40s!

  2. Looking lovely as always! I am also hoping to find myself a bullet bra this year, but as a very large cup size I am not terribly hopeful :(

  3. I'm an autumn colour addict and love all these colours so much. This dress is great and so are your mustard gloves.
