Tiger Stripes

Wow! and I thought Camo Glamo' was as weird as evening wear got. Take a look at this 1949 American concept of chic. This really doesn't work, does it? And the worst part? There's not a hint of irony.

A friend sent me a link to the Brooklyn Museum's current exhibit, American High Style: Fashioning a National Collection. Pretty amazing stuff. Some of it is even amazing in a good way!

  1. I don't know - in a weird way I actually like it. Of course, as you know, I don't wear patterns next to my face, but perhaps one of my beautiful dark-haired friends could pull this off with panache. To the right occasion, of course.
