I love Gay Gibson clothing line because they design their clothes with such distinctive and stylish elegance that will simply woo you! I’d love to find me one of these original lace dresses.
The models are wearing an ecru-colored cotton lace with sentimental trimmings of lavender ribbon. And I absolutely adore their hair and makeup.
From the Left: Bra dress. Center: Angel Float. Right: Party Bib Skimmer. The center dress with the bow is my absolute favorite. Now all I need is sandals with socks. How divine!
I did a search on Google on the label and found this bit of history via vintagefashionguild.com
Gay Gibson was one of the many Kansas City, Missouri fashion labels. The women's clothing industry there was thriving during the 1930s-1950s, producing mid-priced clothing. The Gay Gibson label dates from 1937. The label was actually owned by the Gernes Garment Company. There was not a person named Gay Gibson.
Now you didn’t think I was going to leave you without seeing my version right?! The label of the sweet white dress that I’m wearing is Jessica McClintock not quite like the Gay Gibson ones but rather a combination of the three with a little je ne sais quoi added. And the strappy black shoes seem to follow me around. I want to wear them with everything. I have close up photos of the sandals with my baby blue socks rolled down. As always the hat is the icing on the cake!
