in search of the holy grail (of vintage dresses)

No, I'm not already home! But I did plan this post before I left LA for England (sneaky, sneaky). I figured I'd post it now...


I've been looking for a dress (as have a few of my fellow vintage-heads out there) like this striped 50s/60s dress Jean Seberg wears in À Bout de Soufflé -- if you know the film she wears it when she goes to cover a story at the airport -- here...

Amazing, I know, but finding one is no easy task; it's basically like my holy grail of vintage dresses from that era.  I did, however, find the dress I'm wearing below on Ebay and it has hints of the almighty Breathless dress. Unfortunately, sans the amazing collar which, admittedly, is half of the appeal of the original. still...
outfit details
vintage dress: ebay
shoes: uo
bow: h&m kids dept.
 
And so, the search continues... but my love for stripes has been reignited since this dress entered my closet (I sort of o.d.'d on them a few years back).

take care! xdjrd
