Size 8 Designer Dress with Special Details - Periwinkle Indigo Purple Silk Brocade - Leafy Appliques & Hand Beading - Swag Skirt - Bust 36

$ 129.99

An unusual dress from a high-end New York designer, this beautiful silk cocktail has influence from both the 1930s and the Victorian era. It's a thin silk brocade with a blouson bodice and pleated sleeves, open to the top, with hand-beaded leaves appliqued to the hem. The skirt has similar beadwork and appliques, with sweet satin rosettes and gorgeous swagged drapes around the hem. In back, the neckline has a slit and long ties that could be closed if desired. This dress was made in the 1980s by a designer still in business today... her contemporary pieces begin at $1200.
