Yet another dress for Grace/ “Four Leaf Clover”, Chas. James
I just finished a collaboration with the LA design duo, Woodson &Rummerfield, the theme being “Auntie Mame”. It is part of the Legends of La Cienaga event to be held this week here in LA. It is a decorative mural inspired by the Mame set, it’s in the window at Baker, please check it and the fabulous room out.
So not only was I looking for a dress to please my niece, I also wanted to satisfy the demands of dear Mame.
I think Mame would love this bit of brilliance by Charles James.

Really, it’s just a simple little cotton summer frock, so perfect with daisies and chilled jug white.
A bit of summertime magic.
Thanks Mr. James.
Post Script: Just a sample of the sketchy brushwork depicting Mame’s set.
