Children of the Nineties said...

I love the 60s-inspired geometric patterns. I especially love the black and white, so chic. It reminds me of a 90-year old woman at my Grandma's retirement home who only wore black and white and heels--I can only hope to be so chic at 90!

Such art deco gorgeousness dear CC... I think I would trade in my whole wardrobe for the Jean Paul Gaultier dress!
