Black & White Vintage 60s Silk Cocktail Dress -
Oh, you coquette! You're the flirty one that causes heads to turn as you stroll in wearing a delightful dress from the '60s that's got a black bodice and a bold, eye-catching skirt that's as graphic as can be. You better believe they'll notice you.
This is a charmer. The dress is of good quality, too. It's made of silk and acetate and it's fully lined. The bodice, as well as the curved hem of the sarong-ish styled skirt, is made of jet black slubbed silk. There's even a little Audrey Hepburn style bow at the waist of this cutie. There's a bit of fullness to the skirt which adds some drama to the silhouette. It's got a tulip type shape to it. It's basically a faux-wrap skirt. Dress closes with a long metal zipper.
If your affair starts in the late afternoon and culminates with dinner and dancing, this little dress is the perfect day to evening option. Don't blame us if you're the best dressed lady in the room.
Condition is very good. Clean and spiffy w/o holes or stains. It's been dry cleaned. The cleaner pressed the bottom edge of the skirt instead of steaming. See last photo for how that turned out. (It's a bit puckered, but certainly a negligible issue.)
The printed acetate that comprises the skirt appears less black than brownish in tone. It would appear that's not fading,(because it's an all-over brown-ness), but it could be faded. Nonetheless, it looks really good as it is!
