A Shift in The Wardrobe May 08, 2013 07:27
The more we focus on finding great vintage items, the more we realize good pieces are truly timeless. The shift dress's creation is credited officially to Hubert de Givenchy. Remember the one he made for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's?
That was in 1961. And the shift has never gone away. Lily Pulitzer and her lemonade stand made a huge splash with her shifts. Bright and fun patterns designed to hide all the spills of her lemonade stand soon became a staple in everyone's closet. Her classic style continues as the Lily Pulitzer brand continues creating the popular shift.
We love the shift too and its' timeless style.
This is a 60s Shift from Stacy Ames - great coral, pinks on a linen weave fabric with a deep olive ground. Simple notched collar and zip back. A classic!
