Miss July

I found this glamorously fresh photo amid our graphic archives today... No note about where she's from, or what year, though she looks mid-1950s.  I thought she captured the spirit of the day in her glorious sun dress.  It's probably cotton, piped in pink and just ravishing with that vivid bouquet.  For the era, this was a politically correct bohemian look, hence the gypsy earrings in oversized pink and white baubles.  A beauty for late July.


  1. The model is the lovely Jean Patchett :-)

  2. Thank you so much! Here's a link for those wondering: http://www.jeanpatchett.com/

    I recognized her from Jo Copeland ads but did not know the name. I really appreciate it! : )
