You know I love Bergdorf ads. But it's the outfit here that catches my imagination. From 1964, the Adele Simpson rayon sheath dress with interesting seaming is set off with a matching capelet. The cape was lined in contrasting silk and the set came with a leather tie belt in the same color as the cape lining. The color combinations were wonderful: navy with vivid green lining and belt, sea green with turquoise, gold nugget with black or black with gold nugget. The set sold for $160 in 1964 (about $1220 in today's dollar.)
