1940s Ashes of Roses Rayon Bias Cut Slip Gown

 

 

 

 

We find ourselves feeling a little bit sorry for young men of the modern day. Why?  As a whole, they are missing a monumental sensual experience because young women today tend to dress for bed in clothing we find downright abhorrent. Aside from the disgusting fact that we see what passes for pjs (flannel pants, old t-shirts and slippers) worn in the grocery store (but maybe that's just where we live), coupled with a glut of thongs (and cracks) on public display, we figure it's no small wonder we are inundated with ads for Viagra and other male enhancement formulas while we're trying to watch 'Dirty Jobs' late at night. It's no wonder men today can't perform. We think their 'little problem' would be well served by a 'little mystery'. And that can easily be supplied by their women donning lingerie. And no, we're not necessarily talking about that stuff in the Frederick's of Hollywood catalog. What we're referring to is the sight of a gorgeous slip hugging a curvaceous female form. The heady sensory experience of fingertips sliding over silky rayon onto soft skin.  The turn-on of feeling appreciated 'cause you're woman has slid into something a little more comfortable for you (and it isn't sweat pants). A gorgeous bias cut rayon slip gown in the palest smoky lavender, known in it's day as Ashes of Roses. The gown slips on over the head, with ties at the waist, a deeply cut back, and has a leaf appliqué at the bust with a few scattered down the front of the gown, like they're falling from a tree in Autumn. The bias cut gives some variance on the size, it will fit up to a 36" bust, waist 26", hips 34"", length 53".Made by Darlyne, in excellent condition. $95
