A little glamour with your cocktail?

With more than a touch of nostalgia, 
the new collection by Paule Ka 
has me gasping from the sheer beauty of it all...
And when combined with 
a mid century modern backdrop such as this....
well, what can a glamourous girl do but fall in love?
The ad campaign was shot at the Jorgenson-Mavis House,
designed in 1955 by Palm Beach society architect 
William F. Cody, at Rancho Mirage, California. 
It was one of the first "Desert Modernist" houses,
and was well-known as a party house with neighbours such as 
Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz popping in for cocktails.

Gorgeous & all so very feminine. 
Any of these outfits tickle your fancy?

Jorgenson-Mavis house available for holiday rental: beaumonde villas.
