Beautiful full skirt silver and black lace cocktail party dress, vintage 1980s channeling the 1950s, by Rimini. Rimini was a better name manufacturer of evening wear, sold in high end department stores such as I. Magnin and Saks 5th Avenue.

This little number has lots of drama, from its large portrait collar, nipped waist, very full and flirty skirt, to the lovely black and silver floral lace.

It'll make a *great* dance dress. Out for dinner or cocktail parties, with that gleam of silver catching the light.

The long sleeves are sheer lace and have two glittering rhinestone buttons setting off each cuff. Under the attached lace overlay on the bodice is a strappy classic 50s bodice, with spaghetti (or thin fettucini ;) straps.

The skirt has an attached net crinoline, and black lining under that. Small shoulder pads, which you could snip out if you like, but I think they work well with this dress and they are small. And, it's in beautiful, flawless condition!

I've shown it with an extra crinoline, and just a plain black belt, which didn't come with the dress aren't included. You don't really need an extra crinoline, seeing as it has its own, and any wide black belt will do beautifully although I see it with black patent (or faux patent) leather. And rhinestone chandelier earrings! May as well go all out and knock 'em dead at that party or dinner! ;)
