I was looking around the web for a swing era dress to wear to a WWII USO Swing Dance I will be going to, and found this charming site: Catnip Reproduction Vintage Clothing. The owner, Kristine Anderson, ran a vintage clothing store in San Diego, California, for 36 years. In 2010 she closed the store and put it all online so she could share her love of classic vintage style and design with a wider audience.

This is her “USO” dress. I love the polkadots and the contrasting bright red buttons. The rayon fabric will ensure that the skirt drapes prettily and swishes when dancing.POLKA DOT RAYON PRINT 1This capris and cropped top outfit looks like the ensemble worn by one of the models in the movie “How To Marry A Millionaire”.matador caprisThis hawaiian playsuit looks great for hot weather.hawaiian playsuitAnd if you want the complete look, Kristine carries lingerie too, like this Tigress Garter Panty ensemble.
