Another new Zuckerman ensemble- this time featuring a dress in wool with a large waistband, a satin bodice and short sleeves. It also has a jacket with mink trim. Ben Zuckerman often used fur in his clothing, as most designers of that era did. 

The outfit also features a label from Miller & Rhoads, Richmond VA. Miller & Rhoads was a chain of department stores in Virginia and North Carolina. The flagship store was located in Richmond. Various changes of ownership occurred over the years, and the stores were all closed by 1990, a fate that was echoed across America as many other venerable department stores were shut around this time.

The flagship store, where this ensemble was purchased can be seen below:
