  1. Looking for black lace open hostess party dress. I will be turning 55 in May 2019 & want to do an I love Lucy theme party

  2. Have you had any luck finding any for sale? Even new vintage. I’m having a hard time locating any so would love it if you knew of any places. Thanks in advance! Leah

  3. Check out some of Loretta Young’s early outfits to see more beautiful flowing hostess sets. We thought she was the most beautiful woman on TV! Debbie-I love your posts! Barbara (Madame Hatsy)
