You've heard of a little black dress -- but what about a little black true vintage 1950s lace, sequined, and beaded evening gown?
This piece is formfitting, flattering, and decked out in spectacular sequins and beading throughout. The dress has somewhat of a mermaid style near the hem, but that's really just so you can move/dance comfortably. This area is accented with deep red thread.
The lacework is in nearly pristine condition, to the point where we assume it was never, or rarely, worn.
For those looking for a statement-making vintage evening gown that is in the style of the famous 1950s wiggle dress, THIS IS IT.
We believe that it may even have been hand-beaded, though there is no way to know for certain. We were able to date it through the zipper, which is a Conmar Conmatic. The dress itself is unlabeled, which again, leads us to believe it is a couture custom creation.
Get ready to show off your curves, glitter as you move the dance floor, and capture the attention of everyone in the room.
We have to say -- we're dying to see someone rock this with opera-length white gloves. PLEASE make our dreams come true.
Perfect for a formal occasion -- classic and elegant, but still sexy and different from what everyone else will have on.
This vintage 1950s dress is in great vintage condition.
Some slight (invisible when worn) staining to the interior lining. This piece is quite delicate and care must be taken when worn.
Some slight loose sequin/beading/threads throughout, but in surprisingly excellent shape for its age. Certainly not noticeable when worn -- just be careful and store in a dress bag to preserve!
