Pablo Picasso

Last summer I bought a deadstock Carole Little resort rayon separates set, circa 1980. The colors were bright and the prints charming and I imagined wearing the loooong skirt as a strapless dress. Well this summer that skirt fits a bit snug, and the strange little top, which I had never considered, somehow tricked me in trying it on. And odd thing was: I liked it. I'm not sure why, except that it hangs exceptionally well, and reminds me of a Picasso painting.

Thank you for your compliments. The shirt is funny. A bit bright for my taste but strangely charming. It's a top that is a mock jacket over a black base, a one piece. I should wear the skirt so you can see it in its' Carole Little '80's glory.

So glad you got to wear it. The colours are so wonderful together.

The Creative Bohemian said...

I think that top is fabulous! I agree, it resembles a Picasso and you look like a work of art wearing it!


Heather Fonseca said...

Oh my gosh I remember that line. Carol Little. What happened to it? Oh hey, and what is "dead stock"?

the Citizen Rosebud said...

Heather, you've inspired me to do a future post about Carole Little.

"Deadstock" is vintage that has never been worn with tags still on it. New "old" clothes.
