Lush Red Velvet Vintage 80s Strapless Dress -
Show off your shoulders in this lush red velvet dress from the 1980s.
Imagine this with a fuzzy mohair shawl or something sleek and satiny. Perhaps you'll want to give it a Marilyn Monroe twist with a silver fox stole and some rhinestone jewels. It would be stunning with a chunky necklace, too. The dress takes on a Steam Punk aesthetic when you pair it with lots of black and some antique lace-up boots. There are endless ways that you can glam-up this dress!
This is a versatile tea length gown that's gathered at the waist and accented at the bust and waist with a textural rose patterned cotton fabric. The dress has a very wide, long sash belt that ties in the back. The flick of that long sash belt is going to be stunning when you're in motion! This is made by Laura Ashley, one of Britain's great designers of romantic, Victorian-influenced dresses.
You'll look stunning in this red dress. It's got so many possibilities and unlike many formal dresses, this one can be worn many times and still look glamorous and fun depending on how you accessorize it. Happy dress-up season!
Excellent. There is one flaw on the trim of the bust. It's located towards the side seam of the dress. I looks like someone pinned the dress to fit better (or to a hanger.) There are two pin dot holes with a bit of soiling around/on the small pin pricks.
