Inspirations: Galitzine, zipped or unzipped. July 22, 2009 08:23

Galitzine_Vogue_2162 Phoenix. Paradise Valley. Scottsdale. 113 degrees. Oh. My. Can you say hot? Or, to quote Buster Poindexter aka David Johansen, hot, hot, hot! Or should I quote Soca musician Arrow, who wrote it first? Mmmm . . . decisions. Questions. Et cetera.

But when  the weather is sizzling hot, when you are beyond glistening, this is the dress to wear. Definitely. It's sleeveless. It's stylish. And those flattering princess seams. Yum. Would Galitzine steer you down the wrong fashion avenue? I think not.

Vogue Couturier Design 2162, circa 1960s, is one cool number. Zipped or unzipped.

May I suggest whipping it up in a daffodil linen? I may. And I will.
