vintage 1950's dress ...hubs fave COVER GIRL of MIAMI cotton fishing lures novelty print halter dress with FULL CIRCLE skirt

Cover Girl of Miami, along with Alix of Miami, Marc-el, and other popular labels of the era was one of the manufacturing businesses that sprung up in Miami, Florida in the midcentury.  During the post-World War II period, the city of Miami, Florida became a leader in the development of “modern” mid 20th century design which included fashion, of course. The city’s location lent itself to modernism with a twist of tropical fun, or in this case "novelty."

Hubs favorite because of the colorful display of fishing lures along with their equally colorful names against a gorgeous turquoise background... talk about "whistle bait" - hah!

Excellent -Very good- appears to have been hardly worn. I initially noted some very small faint spots but I can't seem to find them again? Either way, if there they are hard to detect and may easily lift.  And I can only see a very, very faint hint of a color variance (it's not even picked-up in the photos) at the side edges of her bodice. Price adjusted accordingly
