Sassy vintage 1950s 50s dress.

✧ by Irene Saltern of California -- early American label
✧ waffle knit cotton with abstract roses print
✧ fitted wiggle dress shape
✧ halter strap with two black + silver buttons
✧ two kick pleats at the front sides of the dress for ease of movement when walking
✧ fastens up the back with a covered metal zipper

please note: the zipper on this dress is fully functional, it was just too small for our dress form.

What a sexy little dress this is! Fitted as a glove and in classic black and white, I imagine this dress being worn with a large black sunhat and some big movie star glasses -- and of course, a pair of towering high heels. This dress would be perfect to wear to a wedding, for a high styling day trip about town, for a fancy cocktail party, or for any other especially special event. A classy pinup bombshell dress with more than a bit of cheek!

This beautiful dress was made over 50 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. There is the slightest degree of fade to the black rose print, and the tiniest degree of wear to the silver detail on the buttons. A couple of places where the white is only vaguely less white, but you will never notice this without diligently searching it out. Otherwise just about perfect! This dress has been lovingly handwashed and is ready to wear.
