Patio Pretties

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the patio dresses and sets, popular in the 1950s and 60s.  A recent conversation in the wake of the floral print party, my friend Angelica and I discussed having a party where each person would wear one of these patio ensembles, and so we did, leaving Casa Del Matador in, as Angelica put it, “a haze of rickrack”.

I had a very lovely and relaxing evening with Angelica, her friend Candice (who made her dress, I might add!) and her husband, as well as Teresa (with whom I did many of AlexSandra’s fashion shows with) and Jennifer of Jumblelaya.
