$ 109.99

Beautiful shotcloth cocktail dress with unusual details! This short sleeved 1950s dress darkly gleams in sapphire hued taffeta, with a ballerina-like bodice and classic A-line skirt. The details are in the skirt, where pleats are pinched in an even pattern to create a sculpted effect, and the back is richly accented with a heavily gathered taffeta tie and flared swag. Really lovely, really unique!
