STORY

An Ironic Shift.

A bit about irony…

The New York Times declared in the 1920s that the expiration date for the crossword puzzle fad was imminent. Today, the Timeshas arguably the most popular crossword puzzle in the world.

Only slightly less ironic is this— the shift dress came about because women wanted to break free of the restrictive clothing of the Edwardian period, clothing that society (men) thought woman should wear.

Women decided to ditch appearance and expectations for something practical, comfortable, and not so on-the-nose. After all, one could not dance, liberate with speakeasy libations, or make point-proving hand gestures in restrictive garb.

The narrative shifted and the shift dress was born.

But the result had the opposite effect.

Mystery was re-introduced and men were even more mesmerized.

The male derrière began shifting too.

In its seat.

The Pleat Neck Shift Dress (No. 5340). Light and airy silk-blend crinkle chiffon. Adorably imperfect fuchsia dots on grey background. Fully lined in light grey jersey knit. Scoop neckline with two pleats at front. Knee length, cap sleeve, bra keepers. Keyhole with self-fabric loop and pearlized button at center back neckline. Imported.
