Vintage convergence time again

I love it when this happens: I find a vintage ad, magazine spread, or pattern that appears to exactly match a vintage item I have or once had. I call this a vintage convergence, and you can see all my previous here.

I always love to see how someone once styled the same item, and have been surprised that I have sometimes managed something at least slightly similar.

The most recent find was a hang tag, and the dress was first sold in 1967, and later (by me) in 2008. It was a lovely pink linen dress with appliqu├ęd flowers. I wish I'd let the A-line shape be more apparent in my photo—but see? I turned my toes out like the model in the ad!
