Suits me

I'm not a Kenley Collins, I swear, but I do love me some fashion from the Fifties. Have you ever seen old photos or movies where after the wedding, the bride changes into a sort of 'travel-outfit'? You know, usually a beautifully constructed colorful skirt-suit and a hat, and then off she goes to her honeymoon? Sort of like these?
