Mid 1960s mini dress from Saks of Fifth Avenue, with a great Pucci-inspired print in fine luxurious silk twill.

I'd love to know this dress's history - what vintage fashionista bought this chic little number back in the day? What event did she buy it for and where did she wear it? I imagine luncheons in tea rooms and fabulous New York parties.

It's beautifully made, with interior snaps at the wrists of the long cuffed sleeves, as well as snaps at the flattering v-neckline, and at the waist, with a hook and eye closure there too. It also features a wide matching contour-shaped silk sash that ties at the waist.

The style is a semi-wrap, fastening at the waist but the skirt isn't open. (A lot easier to wear than a full wrap - no accidental flashing.)

Love the print, and the versatility. This fine silk mini dress can be worn as a day dress, or dressed up and worn out for cocktails, dinner, or shown off at any party.
