La Dolce Vita ~ Classic 1970 Garolini Evening Sandals in Cream Leather Fashioned Like Cut Work Linen Lace

Cream Leather Evening Sandal ~ by Garolini circa 1970

The Italian company Garolini made beautiful feminine shoes that were extremely popular in the 1970′s high fashion world. Shoes for La Dolce Vita! Here is a lovely pair done in cream leather with delicate straps wrapping around the heel and buckling at the ankle. The vamp is designed, cut and stitched to look like leather cut linen lace. I think these shoes work beautifully with this Moygashal Linen Cut Work Lace Dress from the same time period! A perfect wedding ensemble! The dress is actually going to be worn as a wedding dress on September 6th, in New York. The perfect girl and the perfect dress found each other!

    Love the shoes and the dress. I’m curious: what would you wear under the linen cut-work lace dress? (Looks unlined.) A white slip would be the most subtle, but a fresh pastel color, highlighting the cut-work lace, could also be interesting.

      The linen dress is meant to be worn without anything underneath it, except perhaps an invisible thong. The cut work lace is strategically placed to reveal nothing. In fact many dresses of the era were designed to be worn without underwear – most of the bias cut silk slinky wedding gowns in the old moves were worn over a naked body carefully lit! Because no folds or creases could show!

      This Cut Work Lace Linen dress is being worn for a wedding this coming weekend – we are supposed to get pictures so I can post them soon. I will be very excited to see it!
