A call to visit the estate of a late Chicago socialite has Doris excited. But even she wasn't expecting the weird and wonderful world she was about to enter.
Vintage clothing boutique owner Doris Raymond and her store manager Sarah race to Chicago after receiving a hot tip from an estate liquidator. A Dior model has left behind a treasure trove of rarely worn designer clothing, and Doris is thrilled to have first dibs. Meanwhile, back in L.A., Diane Salinger enters in search of a costume for her role as Hollywood siren Tallulah Bankhead, and jazz singer Mara Hruby hunts for a '50s dress for an upcoming gig. It's a wild time at The Way We Wore® and even Michael Jackson's glove gets into the act!
