The Washington Times Photos

The Duke and Duchess of Windsor circa 1939.  This picture was taken at their villa in Cannes, France. This is Edward VIII who abdicated the throne in order to marry Wallis, who was a divorcee (think the movie, “The King’s Speech”).  Aren’t they a stunning couple?  Some of her nightdresses were auctioned off this past week.  They are so gorgeous and delicate.

I have in my collection of vintage clothes a nightdress that belonged to my mother’s mother.  Could it be from the same era?  Maybe older?  I like to think it might be part of her wedding trousseau, around 1920!  Wouldn’t that be fun.
