Dior? Dior?! Diorling?!?!

    I've mostly gotten over my flower child/prairie dress/Gunne Sax hoarding phase, but sometimes I run into something really special that just HAS to come home with me.

    Imagine my surprise when, during a routine treasure hunt, I came across this beauty. Not just a Dior, but an honest-to-goodness Diorling! I'm pretty sure it's very late 1960s/early 1970s, during the time when Marc Bohan was head of Dior.
    Sooo soft and moody, the perfect blend of hippie chic and victoriana.

    Alas, I can tell myself a million times that I NEED a velvet button-front lounging gown with ruffle sleeves, but that still won't make it true, so it's not going to stay in my collection, but I thought I'd brag while I still had the chance :embaressed:

    Both are lovely! I'd never heard of Diorling before, but I can certainly appreciate the attraction - they're gorgeous :)
