Vintage 1970’s Gunne Sax Dress

When I opened Vogue Magazine this month, I remembered the excitement of a box from Gunne Sax that arrived with the lace and ruffled trims, the skirts and dresses adorned with velvet trims and ribbons. Many times I just let my customers open the boxes to have first pick!

Fashion is now calling these lovely dresses “Prairie dresses”. Prairie dresses and skirts are now being paired with cowboy boots.
