Check Mate

I just came across this set of photos from LIFE, shot by Nina Leen in 1958, and had to share.

The check umbrella and matching check hat paired with a sleek, simple dress is sooo chic!

Check handbag and matching shoes: Want!

A gingham dress is normally firmly within the region of summer casual or girlishly sweet, but the elbow length black gloves take it to a new level of sophistication. I'm totally earmarking this look for between-season weather.



  1. Gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing, your blog never fails to brighten my day :)
