1960s Roos Atkins advertisement
Roos Atkins was a chain of upscale men's and women's clothing stores based in San Francisco, from the 1960s through the 1980s. Maybe something like Macy's? I have had this dress for about 2 years now and am finally wearing it. It is soft wool knit that is just the right weight under a medium weight winter coat. The belt loops are really wide suggesting it should be worn with a wide belt but I always feel like a wide belt makes me look shorter, plus I wanted to wear my favorite belt. The coat is divine, no, seriously. My friend Amy bought it on Etsy last year and I was crazy jealous. Patience is key because a year later the coat is mine through some coat trading between her and I. I then had the coat shortened by about 2 inches. I'm telling you, tailoring coats is the way to go.
