So far as the Rack is concerned, the 1950s were all about turquoise. I happen to adore the idea of a day dress: full skirt cut with tight bodice, full support. The color looks good on my complexion so if I have the chance I'll certainly pick one up! Here's some awesome versions, variation in tone and cut.
