One Way or Another vintage dress


One Way or Another secretary dress

"One day, maybe next week, I'm gonna meet ya"

Stand out in this bright and glam coral dress. So very Marlo Thomas! (Living Coral is the Pantone 2019 color of the year - so this 70s treasure is completely on trend!) Throw on a great jacket and boots for school or office, dress is up with Mary Jane pumps and some giant hoop earrings. So versatile!

Sheer coral fabric overdress with satin coral slip liner. Flouncy ruffled collar with faux-drawstring close. Ruffles at cuffs and hem. Back zipper and hook and eye close.

Designer: Alper Schwartz

Flat Measurements:
19" pit to pit
16.5" pit to cuff
41" shoulder to hem

Dryclean only tag.
Union-made ILGWU label, made in USA

Returns and exchange details

All items are vintage. I do my best to list sizing information, as well apparel measurements on each listing. Please be aware that vintage sizing is very different than modern sizing - you must refer to measurements to ensure the best fit.

I do not accept returns for this reason.

All items should be laundered either handwash cold (in Woolite) and hang dry, or dryclean only to protect the vintage fibers.


All items are vintage. Many have been re-imagined into something modern and beautiful. Custom creations are possible, so do inquire!
