Henry Rosenfeld is fashioned of a cotton knit. Shown here belted and blousoned, you could also wear this as a straight column with completely different accessories.
I know it is difficult to see, but the model is wearing a multi-strand pearl necklace that is tucked inside the square neckline. I really like that idea.....a lot. The dress sold for $17 in 1955, equivalent to about $148 in today's dollar. I can assure you, this dress was far superior in fabric and construction that anything you can buy for the same amount today. Choose vintage!
