My new co-worker Alice was recently moved from one computer to another, and I ended up with her old one. Lucky for me, Alice left all her bookmarks here, and so I can casually peruse all the things that interested her. And, thus, many of them have become interesting to me. Among them, are a vintage dress company called The

They specialize in gorgeous gowns from the Victorian and Edwardian era, WWI and the mid-century, special couture pieces, as well as a random collection of items from the personal collections of celebrities, including Joan Crawford, Liza Minnelli, Sophia Loren and Eva Gabor.

I was taken by this one in particular: a hostess gown which belonged to Lucille Ball. At $800 it's a steal.
