The 1940s DuBarry dress for the modern girl!

The 1940s DuBarry dress and its versatility.

The DuBarry brand was known in the 1940s – 1960s for simple yet elegant evening gowns, cocktail and prom dresses, as well as mother-of-the-bride wear. Today the label is synonymous, amongst us vintage girls, with the best that ready-to-wear vintage has to offer. I love how easy it is to dress up or down the DuBarry gown. It makes the perfect choice for many occasions, although I personally like to treat it as a day-wear. As you can see in the photographs below, I removed the original, embellished with crystals belt, and replaced it with a simple black one. By doing so I turned the evening gown into a simple yet elegant day dress.
