Have your own Black Tie Affair as the modern Bond Girl who wears her own tux – more precisely, this vintage 1980s black wool crepe tuxedo skirt suit. This is Chic with capital C Elegance with capital E with a sexiness that whispers, doesn’t shout, peaked satin lapels, single button cropped jacket with lightly padded shoulders, and pencil skirt with wide satin tuxedo stripes down the sides and side pockets. It is the perfect ensemble for any formal event and will quickly become your go-to evening outfit for years to come. Style it in numerous ways to change as you will for event, mood or adventure type. You really can never go wrong with a tux (Oscar hosting the possible exception).

• Single black buttons on front of cropped jacket
• 2 decorative black buttons on each cuff
• Jacket is fully lined
• Skirt’s back zipper works perfectly; hook & eye closure

Please read all Shop Policy info before purchasing items.

Please keep in mind that vintage clothing is, by definition, old. It has most likely been worn before, and it may have signs of wear. I do my best to note any flaws if they exist. Also remember that sizing changes – what used to be considered (and marked) a size 12 may now be more in line with what we think of as a size 6. For this reason, measurements are given for all garments. If you have any questions, please ask before you buy.

All items are offered and sold in "AS IS" condition. All items are measured carefully to ensure accuracy of fit, and all flaws are described so the buyer can make an informed purchase. Please ask any questions you may have on size, condition or any other item aspect prior to placing your order.
