Nora's Favorite Party Dress

Nora Blackbird wears vintage couture dresses from the collection Grandmama Blackbird left behind in the attics of Blackbird Farm.  Here is Nora's favorite---it works for any occasion but a funeral.  It's Valentino, of course, from the 1980s.  What do you think? Nora's party dress

Black or white?

Nora Blackbird is going to a rooftop gala on Saturday night.  What should she wear?  Either way, it's Oscar de la Renta.  But....black or white?  Come join us on Nancy's Pinterest page to help make solve these haute couture dilemmas.

Not So Casual Friday

If you read the Blackbird Sisters Mysteries, you know Nora spends most of her evenings out on the town--attending all kinds of social events.  On Fridays, she tends to show up at elegant, black tie occasions.  What's a down-on-her-luck girl supposed to wear on nights like this? She raids her grandmama's collection of vintage couture, of course.  Here's one of her not-so-casual Friday evening outfits.  This one, Galliano.
