Black chiffon evening dress with silver lace bodice, c. 1920. The dress has a fashionable low waist and a stunning long train. The asymmetrical neckline is ornamented with applied pearls; the skirt is slit up the side to the lace and is trimmed with silver metallic braid. It was worn by the donor’s mother, Ethel Sanford (1873-1924, Mrs. John Sanford), international socialite, or possibly by the donor. The one-shouldered styling and the long train are probably the work of one of the period’s top designers, however the dress is unlabeled.

I’ve passed by this doorman on about ten different occasions, and he’s been singing show tunes every single time. I know there’s someone out there who lives on E 83rd Street that can back me up on this.
Gimme that dress.
You’ve got to respect a man who refuses to pretend like he’s having a good day.
