$ 139.99

Very pretty 1950s yellow cocktail dress with gorgeous details! This late 50s silk sheath is an hourglass, svelte and sophisticated, with an attached beaded "jacket" that curves like a pair of petals to the bodice. The overlay is sheer fishnet with self appliques, glittering rhinestones, and hand-beaded accents. An unusual and beautiful fitted dress, lined in sheer organza to the overlay and in taffeta to the sheath itself.

Condition Detail
Impeccable condition inside and out, probably worn once, the inside right under arm has a slightly beige hint at the taffeta lining near the armhole's edge, so mild it's not at all noticeable unless sought out
