Well, if one were to guess, this appears to be at a tag sale,
perhaps in Germany, date unknown. 

In any case, the gal knows how to dress!  Lucky guy!

BB Bloomer:

"When I was a young boy (may be five or six), I had the opportunity to go to the "Cinerama" in Paris, with my parents and brothers., in the years 1955-56.

"It was a real treat at the time, because of the unusual huge size of the screen ! I remember the audience screaming sometimes, looking at some scenes!

"Among different movies, there was one shot in Cypress Gardens, Florida. (I guess it was, since there were few parks in the fifties in the US.  I remember very well a group of Southern Belles, dressed in various colored hooped crinolines - they were really beautiful and charming !

I guess since that time, I always had a special fondness for this kind of outfit !

This one was found here (Enlargeable). Isn't she great!"
