Fragile Size 8 1950s Cocktail Dress with Stardust Rhinestones - As Is Sapphire Blue Silk Organza - 50s Fit & Flare Skirt - Poor Condition
As is 1950s blue cocktail dress is a starlet style in sapphire-hued silk organza! This 50s party dress is a bargain price due to its poor condition, ideal for a photo shoot or display, but quite fragile top to bottom (see Condition Detail below). It has a sleeveless fitted bodice with a sweetheart neckline to the taffeta lining, a piped waist seam, and a floaty full skirt in rustling layers. This elegant fit & flare dress has a scattering of rhinestone "stardust" in prong-set faceted stones. So pretty!
