Retro Glam Fascination

RETRO. GLAM. DESIGN. Kelly Wearstler’s redesign of the landmark Tides South Beach.

RETRO.GLAM. DRESS. The "hostess gown" in Woman's Day 1967

I'm absolutely fascinated with this so-called hostess gown that keeps popping up on several vintage sites I've come across. Have you heard of them?  I'm dying to find one and have had full on daydreams of throwing a fabulous social. Cocktails would all be certain throwbacks- gimlets, gin fizz, the French 75, the pre-Prohibition Waldorf's Jack Rose. My home would be decked out in Wearstler retro glam, and I of course, would be in my hostess gown! Do you fancy my fĂȘte?

I'm in love with just about any hotel Kelly Wearstler designs. We just stayed at The Viceroy in Anguilla - FABuLOUS and you best believe that I had a few caftans to lounge around in. You can find them all over the internet - eShakti, Leifsdottir, at Saks and of course at a good vintage store. I'm all about the caftan! Well, if I'm honest, I'm all about Retro Glam or as I call it "Disco!"

Stylishly yours,
Kalyn
