Red and Black Vintage 50s Embroidered Cocktail Dress & Jacket -
This is a simple, elegant black dress with a little red crepe interfacing. That flash of red peeks out around the rounded neckline. The ensemble is all jazzed up and classy because it has the most awesome three-quarter sleeved jacket to pair with it. Can you see how this late 50s vintage ensemble would be the hit of any cocktail party? Sure you can.
Let's talk more about that jacket. It's heavily embroidered with red thread on black crepe. It's partially lined in fire engine red crepe just so that pop of color accentuates the shawl collar. The jacket is kind of blouse-y. It's got a fitted waist band that hits just above the natural waist line and closes with a single, flame red rhinestone vintage button.
Totally classy! Totally chic! Totally terrific! This hard to find larger size ensemble is here on lucitebox until someone whisks it away. Let it be you, darling.
Very good. 4 tiny picks in crepe on the skirt. Embroidery is very slightly frayed at the waist (see the close-up for that.) You're not going to notice it, really.
