Indescribably lovely vintage 1950s 50s dress.

✧ incredibly vibrant peacock teal iridescent skirt + royal blue + gold bodice
✧ lined in blue satin acetate
✧ intricately embroidered metallic gold + blue ribbon trim
✧ boned bodice for shape + support
✧ double ‘train’ panels in back
✧ full circle skirt with pleats for fullness + beauty
✧ fastens up the side with a covered metal zipper

This dress is absolutely, utterly, incandescently gorgeous -- letting it go is going to be a real challenge! (And believe it or not, this dress is far more beautiful in person than the photos show!!) The colors and the details on the fabric are just dazzling, and I love the contrast between the classic 1950s sillhouette and the more bohemian Indian inspired details. When you hold the dress in your hands, you'll see that the iridescent skirt chances from teal to blue and back again in the light. This dress would be perfect to wear to a wedding, to prom, for a fancy fête, or for any other especially special event at which you wish to shine. When you slip it on, you will instantly be transformed into the glowing saphire of any room! A deeply, madly, truly lovely dress.

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