Wow. This vintage 1960s beaded dress from Steve & Anna is AMAZING. BEYOND. The dress is a silk dupioni so it is very sturdy. And the beading! Again WoW. The detail. The craftsmanship. The time. I can totally flash back in time and see this dress as part of Jackie Kennedy's wardrobe, especially the dresses she wore in India. The label says Steve & Anna, Richmond Va. I'm assuming that it was a fancy schmancy boutique that went out of business. The dress is so well made; I love that the hem has lace on it and the dress has bra strap fasteners! I think this dress would make a fab alternative wedding dress for a bride who doesn't want a traditional gown; she wants something different. It's also a great cocktail dress and also a great dress to wear as a wedding guest.

History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia Find from our capital, Richmond.

Label: Steve & Anna Richmond, Va.

Condition: EXCELLENT. Metal zip in good working order. No underarm stains or yellowing. No missing beads. There are some teeny tiny flaws, but even so this dress is in EXCELLENT condition. You really have to LOOK (search) to find the spots. They are all pictured in Photo 5. Top Left Pic is the back of the dress on the right hand side below hips (below where mannequin's hands are). Bottom Left Pic show 2 tiny discolorations on the bottom front of the dress. Top Right Pic shows 2 small spots on top front of the dress. Believe, me these flaws are tiny and I had to really look for them. They are not noticeable and in no way deter from the appearance, wearability or overall FABULOUSNESS of the dress. Please convo if you would like additional photos.

Material: No Label but the look and feel screams Silk Dupioni.

Care: No Label. I would say dry cleaner.


(All measurements are taken with the garment lying flat and all buttons buttoned, zippers zipped....you get the idea. Measurements are doubled where appropriate, i.e. for bust, waist, hips. Measurements are in inches. I still haven't mastered the metric system.)

Bust (from armpit to armpit): 36"

Waist: 35"
