Red Flame Vintage 60s Applique Dress by Carlye -
Who wouldn't love this dramatic vintage '60s dress? Okay, maybe someone stranded on a tropical island might not have a need for a wool jersey dress. But, for the rest of us who must heed the call for Fall and Winter clothes, this dress is a sublime solution.
Made by Carlye, the dress is a study in cool chic. It's poised and ready to project major style and attitude. It's slim through the bodice with long lean sleeves and a mock t-neckline. A wide belt accents the waist perfectly. And that's the boring stuff.
An inferno of wool felt flame-shaped appliqués burst forth from the hem. Those applied designs are positively smokin'. Red. Freaking. Hot. You need not a single thing besides your trim little bod' to make this dress sizzle. Look at those scroll-y shapes? Amazing.
This dress is, far and away, a Lucitebox favorite. It's the ne plus ultra
of vintage dresses as far as we're concerned. And, frankly, it's a steal at this price. That's because you're going to look like a millon bucks in it.
Perfect except for one small spot on the felt. It's no bigger than a dime and doesn't photograph. The belt buckle is very slightly lighter than black jersey. Probably from being used.
