Sleek and chic is this long metallic gold and silver lame* vintage 1960s evening gown. It's very substantial and well made. In fact at first I thought it might be a Norell, but no. The rayon crepe lining was set in by hand along the long back zipper, done in exacting stitches.

* Pretend the accent is over the E in lame ;)

I love the elegant minimalist lines of this piece. It has a standing collar, sleeveless, and skims the body as it gracefully widens towards the hem. The slender horizontal stripes are alternating shimmering gold and silver metallic.

A fabulous entrance-making evening gown with a touch of Mod that will catch the eye but not hit people over the head, and is instantly recognizable as vintage. It's like Marilyn gone Mod.

I'd wear it with oversize silver mod hoop earrings, sleeked back hair, silver heels, and a wide gold cuff bracelet. The belt I've shown it with is from the 1980s. Not included unless you've truly fallen for it, then feel free to convo me about it.
