Gorgeous 1940s silk dress from Bergdorf Goodman. The gown features cascading velvet flowers on the shoulders down the front bodice. There's a bow at the neck line and a velvet belt accompanies the dress (but it looks great without the belt as well). Side zipper closure as well as zippers on the wrist. The Bergdorf Goodman tag on the dress reads: Mrs. F.L Swyer and is dated 11/2/42. Such a delightful detail!

This sunny spring weather is making me so happy. I celebrate springtime with short shorts, bare feet, and goth-in-the-sun velvet goodness! I love everything about this dress and marvel, as always, at gowns this age in such pristine condition! Well loved vintage beauty!


CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition. There is a bit of wear on the velvet on the left shoulder, otherwise perfect! The end of the belt is a bit frayed, but it's not noticeable and the dress looks fantastic without a belt if you prefer to go beltless!
