Madra Lord as a 1943 war bride!?! Only in the movies, my dear.
Monolithic Studio's film diva Miss Madra Lord makes a pensive war bride wearing Integrity's "Town and Country" taupe suit. The original buttons were replaced with beaded ones. Accessories include the wonderful 2-tone shoes from D.A.E. Originals, gloves and floral corsage from Ashton Drake, brooch and fur muff from Integrity.
Pool Pose Madra Lord from Integrity tops her suit with a delightful feathered hat from The Couture Touch. And tucked inside her muff....a prayer book.

In warm weather, wartime brides often wore dresses instead of traditional suits. Two-piece dresses that looked like suits were a popular choice.
