Classic vintage 1950s 50s dress.

✧ by Lloyd’s Ltd. of California -- early American label
✧ textured cotton with black + orangey-brown all over speckles
✧ cross-over ascot at keyhole neckline
✧ hidden pockets at the hips
✧ gored + pleated full sweep circle skirt + nipped in waist
✧ fastens up the back with a covered metal zipper + hidden hooks

What an incredibly chic and classic dress this is! The construction truly is out-of-this world, with expert tailoring and perfect little details galore, and it would look remarkable paired with just a simple pair of black heels and a solid clutch. Perfect to wear to a wedding, to the theatre, for a fancy cocktail party, or for any other especially special event at which you wish to look the picture of perfect ladylike class. Just gorgeous!

A note on the color: to me this dress appears black and muted orange, and it is only upon close inspection that the orange appears more brown, but it is possible that someone else’s eyes may view the colors differently and immediately view it as black and brown. Either way, the fabric is just gorgeous and very special!

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