Distraction: Darling

How fantastic is the giant lettering on this signage from Houston circa 1956?   And the fact that the color of this young lady's dress matches so perfectly?  Makes me wonder if she just went shopping at Darling and if all Darling Fashions were available only in that particular shade of green.  These are the questions that distract a Wandering Eye all too easily....I imagine a monochromatic store interior with product, fixtures, walls, floors, ceilings all in 'darling' green and a customer rifling through a rack of dresses before asking a sales associate:
"Excuse me, do you have this dress in blue?"
"Nope.  Only green." 
From here.
