A New Koret Of California

 
Are there any certain vintage brands that you love to own?  Mine are Cole of California and Koret of California.  Those 2 labels always have such gorgeous patterned fabrics and flattering, for me, styles.

This new to me dress wasn't labelled as a Koret but to me it suggested it might be.  I saw it on Etsy not long after it was listed and rather than wait a time zone to ask the seller questions, I just purchased it.



Aren't the blue colors divine?  Unfortunately, I have to wreck the shirt waist style effect by wearing a cardigan in this freezing 4 degree Celsius weather, but I'll bring it out again in Summer with lots of flowers.

    1. Thanks Kirsten! Not really a favourites list for vintage. I scour etsy and ebay regularly, then for reproduction I mainly look to Pinup Girl Clothing.

  5. I find it funny there is so much love for Koret of Cali things -- just so ya know, in the later 50s and 60s, Koret was considered a Grandma's line of clothing! If you were under 50 you would not be caught dead looking at that part of the women's dept clothing section at the stores who carried the line! That clue given, I do like your skirt - colors are pretty-
