It’s a typical day at The Way We Wore boutique: walk-in customers, brides, party- goers, red carpet requests, and appointments with designers. Doris stepped out for a bit, we all just assumed it was to run a few errands.
After about forty minutes she popped back in, grinning from ear to ear, her tiny frame hidden beneath armfuls of gowns! And that was just the beginning! Her SUV was overflowing with sequins, lace, brocade, taffeta, and rhinestones; rolling hills of maribou, chiffon, and tulle in delicate pastels and luxurious jewel tones. We were stunned! A 1950′s cocktail dress bonanza in under an hour! The pieces were acquired from a Hollywood actress known for her work in “Gone With the Wind”. 40 designer gowns including Balmain, Nettie Rosenstein and Sophie of Saks… all in about 40 minutes!
