Blue & Metallic Gold Vintage 50s Curvy Bouclé Suit -
This is a really nice classic suit with a twist of visual interest that keeps it from being anything but basic. It's a rich, deep slate blue color shot with threads of metallic gold. (A little bit of sparkle never hurt anyone, right?)
The suit is from the '50s. It's got a really nice gored skirt that enhances your figure. It lays smooth and still have some drape to it. Nice. The jacket is nice, too. It's got turned back, pointy cuffs (classic vintage detail), a nicely notched collar and double darts at the waist to keep it looking curvy. The dolman sleeves are looser through the shoulder allowing a broader range of movement. (Good for when you have to hail a cab!)
The suit is a bouclé weave. We're almost sure it's cotton with some rayon. In the close-up you can see the nubby-ness of the knit. This is not a stretchy knit, per se, just a nice novelty weave that is medium weight.
Add some gold jewelry to this and you're set. This is a good suit.
Excellent. The hook and eye closure on the skirt was replaced.
